My family always loves it when I make meatloaf. It’s one of those comforting, hearty suppers that just immediately makes me think of Sunday suppers growing up. Mother would make meatloaf, potatoes, green beans, and sliced tomatoes with a big glass of sweet tea and have us well-fed as we ended our weekend and headed into the next week.
And let’s face it, meatloaf is a delicious supper that doesn’t break the bank!
That’s always nice.
I’ve tweaked her meatloaf recipe and turned it into a weeknight favorite around our house by making individual meatloaves that cook in 30 minutes from start to finish.
Here’s how I do it.
Place your ground beef or turkey in a large bowl.
Dice some onion.
Add your eggs.
Some Worcestershire sauce.
Some brown sugar.
Some crushed saltine crackers. You could also use bread crumbs.
Mix it all together until it is well-combined.
Now, here’s the trick to truly make this a simple, quick recipe for weeknight meatloaf — a muffin tin!
Spray it well with non-stick cooking spray and then spread your meatloaf mixture evenly into the cups of the muffin tin.
Pop it into your oven and bake for about 25 minutes until done.
Remove from the oven and spread with your favorite BBQ sauce. Here’s the one I make really quickly for my meatloaf…
1/4 cup Ketchup
a dash of Worchestershire Sauce
a pinch of Garlic Salt
And then, enjoy!!!
