High Five for Muffin Meatballs

highfive copyWhen I was a kid, I loved Highlights Magazine!  Doesn’t everyone remember the hidden pictures?  The publishers of Highlights now have High Five for the preschool set.

Charlotte adores this magazine.  We read each issue cover to cover multiple times!  She loves the stories, the hidden pictures, and the RECIPES!  Each issue has a recipe you can made with your toddler.

One of our favorites has been Muffin Meatballs.  The meatballs are baked in a muffin tin and taste almost like a mini meatloaf.

I serve the meatballs with ketchup for dipping along with some veggies for a tasty dinner.

Muffin Meatballs
Highlights High Five

  • 2 lbs lean ground beef (we used 90/10; you could also use meatloaf mix)
  • 1 packet onion soup mix
  • ¾ cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 eggs

Heat oven to 350 degrees

Spray muffin tin with Pam or some kind of vegetable oil spray

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until thoroughly incorporated. Form medium sized balls and place them in the muffin tins. Cook approximately 35 minutes. Let the meatballs stand for a minute or 2, and then scoop them out with a slotted spoon.

    Thanks for posting this – my daughter has been begging to make these and now I can’t find the magazine! You’re a life saver. 🙂
