Follow the recipe exactly or alter to suit your tastes. I like to add a diced red bell pepper, and a couple tablespoons of franks red hot sauce. If you find them to be too dry, adding 1/4 cup- 1/2 cup chicken stock will do the trick.
Meatloaf is one of those great family meals that is perfect for weeknights because:
a. It can be prepared ahead of time, left in the fridge, and popped in the oven at the end of a busy day.
b. Meatloaf recipes can be easily doubled (think batch cooking) and taste awesome (sometimes even better) after a day or two. Hello yummy lunch:)
c. It is the perfect vessel to sneak tons of veggies into your kids belly. Check out our taco pie for another hearty veggie-packed dish.
This is one of my favorite figure friendly meatloaf recipes. The muffin tin makes for even cooking and perfect portion control. They are also super convenient on-the-go!
