Bite Size Meatloafs

So I got the idea for this from Pinterest.  But the recipe that was on there had you putting a ton of shit in there that there is no way I'd ever eat.  So I did the meatloaf part like I would do the normal meatloaf at home but bite size portions.

I had 1 pound of leftover ground beef from the Mother's Day triple dipper experiment so I thought...why not!  To make the bite size loafs I used the muffin tin.



Ingredients:

  • 1lb of lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 cup of Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/4 tsp of black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp of garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp of italian seasonings
  • Tbsp of minced onions
  • Ketchup
  • 1 egg


Directions:

In a large bowl pour in all the ingredients except the ketchup.  Kneed it together.  I added a little more bread crumbs until it lost its tackiness.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Take the mixture and shape it into puck shapes.  A pound of meat makes approximately 12 meatball pucks. 



Take the muffin tin and spray each hole with a little Pam cooking spray.  Place a puck into each muffin hole.  Drizzle with ketchup on the top.



Cook for approximately 15-20 mins.  Remove and let cool for a few mins.  These are the perfect bite sized meatloafs!!

Perfect for tailgate.  You can make in the morning and transport as an appetizer!

  1. I made these in the large muffin pans. (Made 10). I substituted 1/2 t. Herb de Province for the Italian seasonings and since I didn't have bread crumbs I used oatmeal that I put in the food processor. I also put a small slice of bacon on top of the ketchup. Will definitely use this one again.
