Paleo Mini Meatloaves
Ingredients1 h 30 m servings 290 cals
- Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir carrots and onion in hot oil until slightly softened, 3 to 7 minutes. Add tomatoes, spinach, garlic, thyme, parsley, salt, and black pepper; bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until flavors combine, about 20 minutes. Cool slightly, 5 to 10 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
- Puree vegetable mixture using a stick blender until smooth. Alternatively, pour vegetable mixture into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth.
- Mix pureed vegetables, ground beef, and egg together in a bowl with your hands until evenly combined. Divide meat mixture into 10 equal portions; form each into a mini-loaf and place on prepared baking sheet. Place 1 bacon piece on top of each loaf.
- Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, 40 to 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
- Cook's Note:
- You can substitute avocado oil for the coconut oil, if desired.

Excellent dish. Easy to prepare, turned out moist, tasty and plenty to go around.
I made these with Elk meat, and they are delicious. They are an easy meal to grab or pack. We had them with spaghetti squash and the combination was terrific.
I made this a little different from the recipe and the whole family loved it! I used chopped onion and celery as well as chopped red pepper - I cooked all those ingredients together in the first...
