Mini Barbecue Meat Loaves

I gave classic meat loaf a tasty twist by adding barbecue sauce. My kids usually get bored with beef entrees, but they keep asking for this dish. It's become a dinner staple at my house. —Vicki Smith, Okeechobee, Florida

    The words "meat loaf" turn some people's noses in my house. I was able to make this and pass this off as something other than meat loaf. Very tasty.

    I did not care for this recipe. Not sure if the 2 tablespoons of seasoning was correct. It was so over powering. I will probably cut them up and use them in some spaghetti sauce. I would not make this recipe again.
