A note about serious food allergies

Not many meatloaves have so many qualifiers, but it just wouldn't be right if we left the title at “meatloaf.” For example, the “Italian” part comes through in so many ways: the multiple cheeses, the marinara sauce that the meatballs were born to sop up, the veggies tossed in garlic. The turkey and the meatloaf are self-explanatory and the mini… well… these little bites of loaf taste exactly as the Platonic meatloaf should. Wait, Plato's from Greece… we're going to have to add a few more words to this title, folks.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Muffin Tin
  • 1 Mixing Bowl
  • 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Tear provolone slices into small pieces and press together into four stacks. Trim ends off green beans. Stem, seed, remove ribs, and slice red bell pepper into thin strips. Mince garlic.

  • Step 2 - Make and Form the Meatloaves

    Make and Form the Meatloaves

    Thoroughly combine ground turkey, ricotta, meatloaf seasoning, and ¼ tsp. salt in a mixing bowl. If using antibiotic-free ground beef, follow same instructions. Divide into four equal-sized balls. Press your thumb into center of each ball and place a provolone cheese stack into the well. Close meat around cheese and re-form into a ball. Form a tight seal so cheese stays inside meat.

  • Step 3 - Bake the Meatloaves

    Bake the Meatloaves

    Place meatloaves in prepared muffin tin and press meat into tin to form muffin shape. Press around the edges of each cup to seal thoroughly. Place muffin tin on prepared baking sheet to catch any drips. Bake in hot oven until golden brown and turkey reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 15-18 minutes. If using antibiotic-free ground beef, bake in hot oven until beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 20-22 degrees. While meatloaves bake, cook vegetables.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Vegetables

    Cook the Vegetables

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil, green beans, red bell pepper, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until vegetables are tender, but still slightly crisp, 7-9 minutes. Add half the garlic (reserve remaining for sauce) and cook until aromatic, 30-60 seconds. Add red pepper flakes (to taste) and remove to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 5 - Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook vegetables to medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and remaining garlic to hot pan. Cook until aromatic, 30-60 seconds. Add marinara and stir occasionally until warmed through, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing meatloaves in sauce and garnishing meatloaves and vegetables with Parmesan. Bon appétit!
