Eggless Beef Muffins


For those not eating eggs, I developed this eggless meatloaf recipe.  A good egg substitute can be made by mixing a little liquid with chia or flax seed and allowing it sit for several minutes.  For this meatloaf recipe, you would never know the difference.

Eggless Beef Muffins
Yields 12
These little meatloaf muffins make excellent dinner entrees. For this recipe to be eggless, it uses an egg substitute made from chia and flax seed. I use 2.5# lean beef in this, which produces dense 5oz meat muffins. Use 1 meatloaf muffin per serving.
