Meatloaf Bites

We love meatloaf here in our home! It is such an easy comfort food. Serve it up with cheesy mashed potatoes and corn on the cob and you have one happy girl (and guy…my hubby loves it too) The problem with meatloaf is that if you are in need of a quick easy meal…it doesn’t cut it! We found a way to solve this problem 3 years ago when we got married but I have just never blogged it. We started making our meatloaf in our  mini muffin pan! It cooks in like 15 minutes max and is so nice to have tiny bites to pop in your mouth. We also have a favorite variation that we really like. See tips from Kj for that!

Now for the bites ingredients:

1/2 Onion Chopped
1/3 C Ketchup
1/3 C Oatmeal
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 1/2 tsp Parsley
1/2 tsp Oregano
1 lb Hamburger

Mix all together and fill your mini muffin pan with the meatloaf mixture. No need to grease the pan.

Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and top with topping mixture.

Topping:
Chili sauce OR 2/3 Cup Ketchup and 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar.

Put back in oven for 5-7 minutes longer or until cooked through.

Tips from Kj:

These are so yummy if you put small scoops of mashed potatoes on top (at the topping step) with some cheese on top of that. Let it melt and you will have cheesy mashed potato meatloaf bites!
