Base Recipe

  • Mix the diced onion, meat, eggs and salt and pepper together.
  • Add your choice of seasonings and flavourings. I have given one example, but take a look below for a huge range of ideas.
  • Mix all the ingredients together with your hands and place a small handful of the meatloaf mixture into muffin trays. Press gently, not too hard, otherwise they will turn into meatballs.
  • Cover with the grated cheese, and sprinkle with grated parmesan if desired.
  • Cook at 180C/350F


  • Mince/ground meat can be beef, pork, turkey or meat of your choice.
  • Nutrition values will vary according to which meat you choose and how lean it is.
  • Try to choose the medium-fat meat. Otherwise too much fat will render out.
