Meatloaf is one of my favorite comfort foods, especially on a chilly winter night. This Meatloaf Muffins with Sweet Potato Topping recipe is the perfect solution for a quick, delicious, and kid-friendly meal. (There are even bonus vegetables hiding inside).
The piled high swirl of pureed sweet potatoes is the ideal accompaniment to the high protein meatloaf. Sweet potatoes have a lower glycemic index than regular potatoes and contain a higher density of nutrients. They are packed with potassium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin B6 which supports energy. Pair with a roasted veggie, and your nutritionally complete dinner is served.
