It’s easy to get your family eating healthier with menus as delicious as the one Tonya Vowels of Vine Grove, Kentucky shares here. Who’d ever guess that mini Bacon-Cheddar Meat Loaves this moist, tender and full of flavor could possibly be light—especially when topped with bacon and melted cheese!
These tangy meat loaf 'muffins' are fun for dinner, supper or a take-along lunch. They're just as flavorful after freezing. Plus, they're the perfect size for sandwich slices. My husband, Mike, is happy to eat these leftovers...if there are any left over, that is.—Cheryl Norwood, Canton, Georgia
“This meat loaf with a zesty chili sauce is a sure way to please a family,” Averleen Ressie assures from Rice Lake, Wisconsin. “My son-in-law is in his glory when I serve the tasty entree. There are never any leftovers.”
This is one of my favorite entrees for two. I found this tender meat loaf recipe in a supermarket’s cookbook almost 20 years ago and have enjoyed it ever since. Sometimes I substitute ground turkey or chicken for the ground beef or make extra loaves to freeze for later meals. –Lois Kinneberg, Phoenix, Arizona
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
