I love to experiment in the kitchen and Friday night is always pizza night at here. I’ve been cutting way back on carbs lately and so I wanted to try my hand at making the cauliflower pizza crust I’ve seen all over Pinterest using riced cauliflower (which is just cauliflower processed into tiny bits to resemble rice). Unfortunately, that attempt at cauliflower pizza was a recipe fail, but the good thing was that I had some leftover riced cauliflower to use up and so these little sneaky mini meat loafs were created. They’re sneaky because they have mozzarella and so the little bits of cauliflower go undetected to get in just a bit of extra veggies for the kids (and non veggie lovers).
These little mini meatloaf muffins combine beef with garlic, onion, mozzarella, riced cauliflower and some herbs. They bake up a lot quicker than a standard meatloaf so that you can have them on the table fairly quickly- and they are nice and moist. If you like things a bit spicy you might want to add some chile pepper flakes for a bit of a kick.
