My family enjoys meat loaf, but sometimes I can't spare the hour or more it takes to bake in the traditional shape. A quick alternative is to divide the meat mixture into muffin cups for individual servings that are ready in less than 30 minutes. —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin

"I always use chili sauce instead of ketchup, it has more twang, also use breadcrumbs instead of cornflakes."

"I will never make the traditional way again. This was so good! I used 1 lb. ground beef, 1/2 cup crushed saltines & adjusted the remaining ingredients since it's just my husband and I. I combined brown sugar, ketchup and a dab of mustard for a topping. YUM!"

"Made 2 1/2 batches and served a family of 8 with very few leftover. They went over great. Moist and delicious. The 4 yr. Old and 2 yr. old ate without a fuss."

"I added grated carrot and minced fresh onion (omitted dried onion) . Very easy to make ahead and freeze for the week ahead as the family is often on different schedules."

"I live alone now so I cut all recipes in half. This is easy, tastes good, and I have 4 to freeze. I did substitute oatmeal for the corn flakes and topped the little loaves with extra ketchup and shredded cheddar. Would probably be good with bead crumbs as well."

"Great recipe for our family dinner. Definitely quick and easy...kids will like having their own little meatloaf "cupcake". Plus, we freeze the leftovers for a meal the next week!"
