We raise hogs, so pork is something I cook with a lot. These miniature meat loaves made with ground pork and Italian herbs are full of flavor. Our children especially like the topping of ketchup and Parmesan cheese. -Patricia Staudt, Marble Rock, Iowa

"My family enjoyed these. I made them smaller (used a 3 Tbsp scoop) so they baked up in about 20 minutes. I used half ground pork, half turkey. I liked the combination of Worcestershire sauce & Italian seasoning, but skipped the garlic and parmesan to keep all palates happy. I'm adding this to my "Quick Meals" folder."

"I use Sweet Baby Ray BBQ sauce instead of ketchup. And use 1 pound of ground beef 1 pound ground pork. Another family favorite."
