Mozzarella Stuffed Italian Mini Meatloaves

I think meatloaf gets a bad rap most of the time. I know that when I used to think of meatloaf I would picture the "old school" meatloaf. You know, the big ole mold of ground beef slathered with ketchup. No offense to the people who serve it that way but that is definitely not my style. I made these mini meatloaves using ground turkey and they were moist and delicious! They were a hit with the whole family and even my toddler gobbled one up.

Mozzarella Stuffed Italian Mini Meatloaves
Makes 12 Mini Meatloaves
Cal 116, Fat 5.4g, Carbs 4.5g, Fiber 0g, Protein 11.5g

20 oz lean ground beef (I used ground turkey)
1/2 cup italian style breadcrumbs
1/2 cup marinara sauce, divided
4 oz reduced fat mozzarella, cut into cubes
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp garlic powder

In a large bowl combine all ingredients including 1/4 cup of the marinara mixture. Mix well and press mixture into lightly greased muffin tins.
Make a small indent in the center of the meat and push in a cube of mozzarella cheese. Spread the remaining 1/4 of marinara sauce over each meatloaf. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes. Serve with additional marinara if desired. Enjoy!
