Mini Mini Meatloaf for Your Mini Me: egg free, green packed and bite sized

My little guy has an egg allergy, so keeping him fed does have some challenges. After a particularly bad episode of chicken nuggets that spread across his fingers, mouth and then swelled up his eyes, I’ve been packing lunch!

There are lots of egg subs you learn about online, this resource is helpful:

Vegan Egg Substitutes for Baking and Cooking.

and this vinegar/baking soda substitute was a win for cupcakes at our recent 2 year old birthday playdate:

Georgia’s 7th Birthday and the Egg-Free Chocolate Cake — Juggling with Julia.

One recipe that has become a staple in our house is egg free mini meatloaves.  Little guy likes them so much that he usually marches into our house after day care demanding “meats” or “eat balls.” Yes you can laugh that he says “eat balls,” we do. Truck and Fox are also funny words my toddler says.

You can find lots of different recipes for mini meat loaf (or taco cups or quiches), but I take a step further using a mini muffin pan, a 24 count vs the standard 12 count muffin tin.  These bite sized minis make an easy pack-able meal that I can cook on a Sunday and have pre-made, healthy lunches or dinners for the rest of the week.

Another toddler friendly recipe we like is the porcupine meatballs from Dinner: A Love Story: It all begins at the family table: Jenny Rosenstrach
