  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F)
  • 2. Heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion, chopped carrot, dried oregano and minced garlic, saute 2 minutes. Cool.

Notes

I'll never make another meatloaf recipe again! In my opinion, thesea re best topped with a mixture of 1/4 cup ketchup, 1 teaspoon dry mustard and 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Want to make it even more special? Put a bit of mozzerella cheese in the center of the "muffins". Even better is that these freeze well!
