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

"very delicious and easy to make!!! I topped them with more bbq sauce instead of ketchup...they also took a little longer to bake than what the recipe says, but it may just be my oven....I also just shaped into balls and baked instead of using the muffin tin."

"These were super easy to make, the worst part was cleaning the muffin tin! I used frozen diced onion and yellow pepper. I also didn't realize that I didn't have enough bread crumbs so I crushed up some saltiness to add to it. My fiance loves meatloaf and he approved this recipe!"
