Mini Meatloaves


Meatloaf! It's what for dinner! Again. Yippee?  OK, I admit meatloaf can be a bore after a while.  That' why we change it up sometimes with the Pineapple version or Pizza.
This recipe is my standard-go-to meatloaf. Nothing fancy. No bells and whistles. But, hey..bake it in your cupcake pan and Woo!, a new meatloaf dish.  My kids eat these more than the standard loaf, primarily due to their cute little size. They also cook up alot quicker.
Pair these up with a nice batch of mashed potatoes and you are ready to go.
{this can work for any meatloaf recipe, so, if mine is too plain for you..change it up and make it your own :)}

    I recently made these for the first time and the kids loved them. I like your idea of putting cheese on top. I'll have to try that next time.
