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 husband and I really liked these. They were full of flavor, more than I thought they would be! Instead of plain bread crumbs, I used Italian. The milk I used was 1%. Also, I didn't put ketchup on top... instead had leftover roasted garlic pasta sauce that I put on top and that was SO good. We really really liked this. I'll be making it again!"

"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."
