Meatloaf gets a fun new twist in the form of chicken parmesan meatloaf bites thanks to our friend Catherine McCord from Weelicious. These petite versions of the traditional thick-cut comfort food will satisfy your child’s taste buds and introduce them to an old favorite in a new way.


1 pound ground chicken
1 garlic clove, minced
1 small onion, diced
1 large egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup marinara sauce
1 teaspoon italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

2. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients to thoroughly combine.

3. Pack greased mini muffin cups with the mixture. Fill to the top as they will shrink a bit during cooking.

4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden and cooked through

Note: For a full size meatloaf, press mixture into a 9×5 loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes.
