Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

also super good for diabetics if you use lean ground turkey

I plan on using my own meat loaf recipe, but using muffin tins sounds like a winning idea.

I use shredded carrots, barbeque sauce and horseradish with egg, & bread crumbs. also like to use meatloaf mix as meat instead of just ground beef

I have been using my muffin tins like this for years. It's a great way to make individual servings of stuffing as well, as meat loaves and mac & cheese. Happy cooking!!

Would love Tony's recipe too!

It's a cute idea, but not very practical. You would need to use a cookie sheet under the muffin pan, to catch the drippings, and you will have a messy cleanup. I'll stick to my own recipie. Every one loves it! Even meat loaf haters.... once they "try" mine they always ask for "seconds". I love to tease them, and say that they have now been converted... LOL

So, what is your recipe?

Please share your meat loaf recipe.

If you are bragging you are sharing...give up that recipe...

Please share your muffin tin meatloaf version with me.

Come on, Tony.....give out with your meat loaf recipe.

1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini (about 1 medium zucchini) LEAVE THAT OUT CUT BREAD CRUMBS TO 3/4 CUP OR LESS THE ZUCCHINI IS WATER

As a southern girl this is not the comfort food I enjoy.
