What child wouldn’t love a giant meatball? Molding meatloaf into muffin tins yields a perfectly portioned main attraction. Each muffin has less than 150 calories and is loaded with finely chopped carrots and onions to provide extra antioxidants and fiber (but we guarantee you're kids won't even know they're there). The dish uses extra lean ground beef to keep the calories and fat low while providing high quality protein.
Parents, this recipe can be made ahead, wrapped individually, and frozen. Pull them out when you need a healthy and filling dinner in a hurry.
