Meat Loaf Miniatures Recipe

I do not usually like meat loaf, but my family and I can't get enough of these little muffins topped with a sweet ketchup sauce. They are the perfect portion size. This recipe requires no chopping, so it's quick and easy to make a double batch and have extras for another day. They're great to give to new moms, too. —Joyce Wegmann, Burlington, Iowa

MY REVIEW

Delicious recipe. I substituted Morning Star crumbles for the ground beef. I mixed in the Rhubarbecue Sauce that was featured in the April/May Taste of Home Issue. I served it for lunch with a mixed green salad.

I made this last night for a ladies group. I real hit. I filled them half way baked for 10 minutes. I tested temp and they were done. I removed from muffin pans to a paper towel to drain, then put them back into a new muffin pan lined w foil cups. Then topped them w mashed potatoes and a little sprinkling of cheddar cheese. Put back in oven until we were ready to serve. I will make these again for sure.

due to the reviews below I doubled the sauce, used 7 t of brown sugar...too much for my taste, not a fan of "sweet meats." Used a jumbo muffin pan, excellent and 1 lb ground beef, 2 lbs ground turkey. paired w/mashed potatoes.
