It’s not too often that we make meatloaf but when we do there’s always leftovers. Something we decided to try recently was meatloaf made in muffin tins. We thought it was a great way to freeze them as they’d be in individual portions that could easily be popped out of the freezer for a quick meal.
We didn’t use a specific recipe because we enjoy experimenting with tastes and hope you’ll enjoy it as well.
What you’ll need
1 lb of ground beef
1/2 cup diced peppers (red & yellow)
1/2 cup tomato sauce or pasta sauce
1/3 cup onions
1/4 cup bread or cracker crumbs
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chives & parsley flakes. We don’t measure spices but for those that like measurements, it was roughly 1/4 to 1/2 tsp each.
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Place beef in a big bowl. Dice peppers and onions and add them to the bowl. Add the egg and Worcestershire sauce. Add spices and mix well.
Lightly grease a muffin tin and scoop the beef mixture into the time leaving enough room that the fat doesn’t overflow into the oven.
Cook for 30 minutes then smear ketchup on the top of each one and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes.
