Ingredients

  • 1 slice sandwich bread (I prefer white but I used multi-grain also with no issues)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 large onion (or 1 small)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash Original Spice Blend with No Salt
  • 1 pound extra lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons BBQ sauce
  • 2 large bell peppers
  • 1 red onion
  • 1/2 head cauliflower
  • 3-4 sprigs thyme
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • fresh spinach for serving
  • more bbq sauce for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • Tear the slice of bread into pieces and place in a large bowl.
  • Pour the milk over the bread and mash with the fork until the mixture is smooth and puree-like.
  • Grate half an onion using the small side of a grater. 
    Alternatively, use a mini food processor and chop the onion into a paste.
  • Add the onion with all its juices to the soaked bread.
  • Add all the spices and mix well.
  • Add the ground beef and mix to combine.
  • Divide the mixture into 8-9 equal pieces and shape into mini meatloaves about the size of an egg.
  • Place the mini meatloaves in the centre of a 13x18-inch sheet pan.
  • Brush the mini meatloaves with BBQ Sauce
  • Roughly chop the bell peppers, red onion, and cauliflower and spread the vegetables around the mini meatloaves.
  • Sprinkle the leaves from the fresh thyme over the vegetables, drizzle with the olive oil and lightly mix to coat.
  • Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the mini meatloaves are cooked through. 
    Safe internal cooking temperature for ground beef is: 160F.
  • Serve with fresh spinach and extra bbq sauce.

Notes

Feel free to use any combination of vegetables that you like. If you have a larger sheet pan then you can add more vegetables also.
