Kids can have fun helping to prepare these mini meat loaves in muffin cups. For extra spice, we sometimes add 2 teaspoons chili powder and 1 cup of salsa. —Linda Call, Falun, Kansas

Ingredients

  • 1 package (6 ounces) stuffing mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons hickory smoke-flavored barbecue sauce
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Additional hickory smoke-flavored barbecue sauce, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, combine stuffing mix, water and 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce. Add beef; mix lightly but thoroughly. Press 1/3 cup mixture into each of 12 ungreased muffin cups.
  2. Bake, uncovered, until a thermometer reads 160°, 18-22 minutes. Sprinkle tops with cheese; bake until cheese is melted, 2-4 minutes longer. If desired, serve with additional barbecue sauce.
