Make Meatloaf in a Muffin Pan 😍– it cooks in 15 minutes 🔥
Stop making meatloaf the old fashioned way and surprise your family with these tiny bites of heaven for dinner.
When my husband and I first moved in together, we had no qualms when it came to making dinner. We both liked all the same foods, and he never complained about what went on the table. Then, we started having kids, and all of that changed very quickly. It seemed like no matter what I made, there were always issues coming from the smaller people sitting in the dinning room. I don’t like having to make separate meals for everyone, and at times, I will refuse to do so.
I do want to make sure that I can please everyone though, so I am constantly on the lookout for recipes that will do just that. When I came across these mini meatloaves on The Seasoned Mom, I only thought one thing… hot dog! This might actually work!
My kids wouldn’t ever dare to eat meatloaf, but they loved meatballs… go figure right. When I made these up, I watched with anticipation to see what they were going to do. They actually gobbled them all up without any hesitation. Victory for Mom!
This recipe is one that I will be using again and again. There was no doubt my husband and I would like them, we like it all. This is one that we can all agree on, and that makes Mama very happy.
2 lbs ground chuck
1 onion, finely chopped
2 ribs celery, finely chopped
1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
1 egg plus a splash of milk, beaten
1 cup plain bread crumbs
2 tablespoons grill seasoning such as steak seasoning
1 cup smoky BBQ sauce
1/2 cup tomato salsa
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
extra-virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 450. In a big bowl, add the beef, onion, celery, and pepper and mix to combine. Add egg, beaten with milk, bread crumbs, and grill seasoning to the bowl. Mix to combine. Next, in a small bowl, mix together the smoky barbecue sauce, the salsa, and the Worcestershire sauce. Pour about three quarters of the sauce mixture into the bowl with the meatloaf mix. Mix the meatloaf together well. Brush a 12-muffin tin (1/2-cup each) with extra-virgin olive oil. Fill each tin with the meatloaf mixture. Top each meat loaf with a spoonful of the extra sauce. Bake about 20 minutes. Cut open one muffin to test that the middle is cooked through.
