Meatloaf Muffins

These turned out really well, and was a great change to the same old boring meatloaf.  Great for freezing too, especially the muffin size. This made 1 loaf and 12 muffins.  I had to use extra sauce as well.  I served with salad and mashed potato.

- Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), for pan
- 1 or 2 pounds ground beef
- Half of a red, yellow and green pepper
- A splash of milk

- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 cup corn
- 1 cup plain bread crumbs (I used a few pieces of bread and toasted it on the oven, and crumbled)
- 2 tablespoons grill seasoning, (Montreal Steak Seasoning)
- 1 cup smoky barbecue sauce
- 1/2 cup salsa
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Brush a  12 muffin tin with extra virgin olive oil
2. Put ground beef into a big bowl, add chopped onions, peppers and corn, add whisked milk and egg, breadcrumbs, and grill seasoning

3.  In a small bowl, mix together the barbecue sauce, salsa and Worcestershire sauce.

4. Pour half to 3/4 of the sauce mixture into the bowl with the meatloaf mix. Mix the meatloaf together with your hands or spoon.

5.  Use a large ice cream scoop or spoon to put the meat into the muffin tin.

6. Top each "muffin" with a spoonful of sauce. Bake about 20 minutes. For the loaf it baked for about 45 minutes.

Ready for the oven




This is a meal we both love because it is so hearty and warm feeling.  Makes you feel like you are having a nice filing home cooked meal.  i "invented" it years ago, and we still often make it.

This recipe will make enough food for supper for 2 of us, lunch for Alan and then we freeze the rest for another night.

1.  In the oven or BBQ cook about 4 sausages.  I use the oven and put them on my stoneware.  Cut up when finished.

2.  Cook some pasta (I like rotini or fussili, but any kind will work), as much as you like.  Make more than you think as you can use it for leftovers, and don't want less than you intend

3.  In a skillet with olive oil, mix together, a chopped onion, half of a red pepper, green pepper, and yellow pepper.  Add whatever spices you like and of course some fresh garlic.

4.  Mix all together with tomato sauce, warm, and serve!

You could add mushrooms or whatever you like as well.  We top ours with cheese of course.
