Mini Solar Meatloaves

The ground pork and apple in this turkey meatloaf mix keep it nice and moist. The cooked muffins can be frozen for future meals.

Sun Oven Turkey Loaf Muffins


1 pound lean ground turkey

1/2 pound ground pork

1 onion, finely chopped

2 cups apple, peeled and finely chopped

1 stalk celery, finely chopped

1 1/2 cups bread crumbs

1 1/2 teaspoons ground sage

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1/2 teaspoon marjoram

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce

2 eggs, lightly beaten


1/2 cup ketchup

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon apple cider

1 tablespoon brown sugar


Set Sun Oven out to preheat. Spray the indentations of two 6-cup muffin tins with cooking spray, set aside.

Combine the meatloaf ingredients, turkey through eggs, in a large bowl. Mix well. Fill the muffin cups with the meatloaf mixture. In a small bowl, whisk together the sauce ingredients. Brush the sauce over the tops of the mini-meatloaves. Place each muffin pan in a rectangular, metal baking pan. Cover with tin foil and a dark tea towel. Cross stack the trays on the leveling tray and bake in the Sun Oven until cooked through, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
