Mini Meatloaves

I have this coworker whom I love dearly, but the girl can barely turn on the oven, much less use it. I was showing her some of the meal ideas I had for this month and she was immediately intrigued by this recipe, so she decided to try it. And even with her lack of culinary skills, she said they were delicious and easy! She even brought them in the next day to show everyone what she had accomplished - and how good they were!

Plus, they're easy to fix to please everyone in your family.

Mini Meatloaves

Mini Meatloaves


Take 1 lb. extra lean ground beef, 1 pkg. (6 oz.) Stuffing Mix and 1 cup water and mix & match your recipe from these options...

For Italian style add:
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
3/4 cup Spaghetti Sauce
3/4 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese

For Mexican Style add:
2 tsp Chili Powder
3/4 cup Salsa
3/4 cup Shredded Mexican or Cheddar Cheese

For Greek Style add:
1 tsp Oregano
3/4 cup Chopped Red Pepper
3/4 cup Feta Cheese

For BBQ Style add:
1 tsp Garlic Powder
3/4 cup BBQ sauce
3/4 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese

For a little kick, add 2 Tbsp. A.1. Original Steak Sauce to meat mixture before shaping into meatloaves.


PREHEAT oven to 375°F. Mix meat, stuffing mix, water and the seasoning until well blended. Press evenly into 12 medium muffin cups sprayed with cooking spray; make an indentation in center of each with back of spoon.

SPOON add-ins/additional style ingredients evenly into indentations in meatloaves.

BAKE 30 min. or until meatloaves are cooked through (160°F). Top evenly with cheese; continue baking 5 min. or until cheese is melted. Let stand 10 min. before serving.

To Make Ahead:
Prepare as directed. Remove from muffin cups; cool completely. Place in single layer on baking sheet; freeze until firm. Transfer to airtight container. Store in freezer up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator, then reheat in 375°F-oven for 20 min. or until heated through.

I have made these a LOT! They are simple and delicious and easy to just keep in the freezer - pop one out when your hungry..... But, I didn't realize all the other version options, like the greek version - sounds yummy!~

Looks delicious and cute for when you're having a lot of kiddies as your guest for dinner or lunch. It's a nice way to give them a small portion.

My coworker did the silicone ones too and said it was a breeze. She doesn't clean either. She did BBQ with a little ketchup (ick to me!) and seriously loved them. She brought them in in a baggie and carried them around showing people. :)

I have the silicone muffin cup liner things, they didn't have any pans when I was going to buy one. They work pretty well. __ “Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” —Coco Chanel

If you have the silicone trays, I would use those. I found the cleanup to be a pain.
