  1. Firstly, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Place ground beef in a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add onions and sauté, stirring occasionally, until they start to soften.
  4. After that, add garlic & habanero, cook 30 seconds, or until fragrant.
  5. Add onion-garlic mixture to ground beef, barbecue sauce, egg crumbs, sea salt, pepper, and dried thyme. Using your hands or a spoon, mix well to combine.
  6. Divide meat mixture evenly among 12 wells of a muffin pan.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in the center.
  8. While meatloaves are baking, boil sweet potatoes until tender, about 10-12 minutes. Drain and beat sweet potatoes and coconut oil or butter with a hand mixer.
  9. Scoop topping onto meatloaves or fill a plastic zip-top with topping, trim the corner of the bag with scissors, and pipe topping onto meatloaves. Or use a spoon to top.
  10. Drizzle with additional barbecue sauce, if desired.
