Mini Meatloaves

On the Give peas a chance blog I found this WONDERFUL mini meatloaf recipe for lunches or on the go dinners. It was simply delicious and so easy! You can ask you butcher for the meat mixture or some grocery stores carry the meatloaf mix already packaged together. I highly recommend this mix as it left the meatloaf moist and didn't shrink up much at all. I have added a few spices for some extra flavor. We also used a regular muffin tin but you can also use mini muffin tins for bite sized meatloafs. The regular tins gave us 7 servings. We'll freeze these for lunches and pop them into a lunch box for reheating at work. It's amazing what you can put in a muffin tin! Hope you enjoy!

1/3 pound ground beef
1/3 pound ground veal
1/3 pound ground pork
2 eggs
sea salt
ground mustard
ground black pepper

Italian seasoning
1 clove garlic- minced
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1/2 small onion chopped
3/4 cup bread crumbs plain
2 Tbs tomato paste
1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
Ketchup (1/3 cup)

Preheat oven to 350

In a large bowl mix everything but the ketchup. Do NOT over mix, your meat will get tough.

Fill your muffin tins or whatever cooking vessel you decide to use. Spread the tops with Ketchup.

Cook about 15/20 minutes to bake at 350. We used a meat thermometer and highly suggest you do too for perfectly moist meatloaf. Temp should come up to 160.
