This was inspired by my love of pizza, my lack of ingredients in the fridge and a shortage of time. This look about 10 minutes to put together and another 20 minutes to cook. This is LITERALLY a 30 minute meal. Kids would probably love to customize each mini meatloaf with their own pizza “mix-ins” !
- 1 lb. Italian sausage
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 handfuls almond flour
- Various pizza type mix-ins, finely chopped (we cleaned out the fridge–green onions, banana peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, green olives)
- If you’re going to use onions, garlic and/or mushrooms, you need to pre-cook them as they stay crunchy (garlic, onions) or release too much too much water (shrooms).
- 1/2 can pizza sauce
Preheat oven to 400ºF.
In a medium bowl, mix together the sausage, egg yolks, almond flour and your choice of mix-ins. Fill a muffin tin about 3/4 of the way up with the meat mixture. Top each mini meatloaf with a spoonful of pizza sauce.
Bake for about 20 minutes.
