When I think of Meat Loaf, I think of the classic movie "A Christmas Story". The kid brother won't eat anything at the dinner table and sits in his chair chanting " Meatloaf, meatloaf, double beet loaf! I HATE meatloaf!" Well long story short, the mother finally gets him to eat his meatloaf by having him pretending to be a pig. It's hystarical mostly because I remember not eating meatloaf as a kid. I hated it! But, let's face it! Most meatloaf really is kind of gross! Isn't it? Well, here is an easy and YES yummy version of meatloaf. My kids escpecailly love it because it's made in muffin tins.
MUFFIN TIN MEATLOAF
1 1/2 - 2 pounds ground beef or ground turkey
1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced into small pieces
1 large egg
1/8 cup of milk
1 cup plain or italian bread crumbs
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon pepper
sprinkle of salt
1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce (I use Famous Daves)
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1 1/2 tablespoonS Worcestershire sauce
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Put ground beef and diced green peppers into a big bowl. Beat egg with milk and add to meat. Then add bread crumbs and all seasonings. In a small bowl mix BBQ sauce, tomatoes and the Worcestershire sauce together. Pour half of the BBQ sauce mix into the bowl with the meat mixture. Mix the meatloaf together with your hands. Wash your hands. In a greased muffin tin, fill each cup with meatloaf mixture. You can use an ice cream scoop to help you fill each tin. Take the rest of the BBQ mixture and spoon some on top of each meat loaf. Bake for about 20 minutes or until cooked through.
