Meatloaf Cups

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes


  • 1 pound lean ground beef (I use 7% fat)
  • 1/3 cup low fat cottage cheese (I use 2%)
  • 1/2 cup plain, dried bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 3 Tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/2 Tablespoon mustard (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • Topping:
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 12-count muffin tin with non-stick spray.
    In a large mixing bowl (using clean hands or a large spoon), add ground beef, cottage cheese, bread crumbs, onion, ketchup, mustard, garlic powder, chili powder, salt, pepper and egg. Mix well until it's all combined.
  • Scoop a 1/4 cup of meat mixture into each muffin cup, pressing down to fill the cup.
    Bake for 15 minutes. 
  • In the meantime, in a small bowl, stir together the topping; ketchup and brown sugar.
    Carefully, remove the meatloaf cups from the oven. Spoon a couple teaspoons of topping over each meatloaf cup.
    Return to the oven for an additional 10 minutes or until the meat is cooked through. Serve warm with any extra topping sauce. Enjoy!
