The Teen Queen has been asking for meatloaf. This is something they like for a dinner or for a lunch during the summer. Using individual mini loaf pans allows for me to make 9 mini meatloaves so they can heat and eat them whenever they want.
You can add whatever you want to this recipe. I always make meatloaf different ways but today I made just a basic ground beef meatloaf.
1 1/2 pounds ground beef (I like to use the 90/10% for meatloaf).
tsp. onion powder, tsp. worcestershire sauce, tsp. celery salt, dash of pepper
2 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I use 1/2 plain panko and 1/2 Italian seasoned)
Mix all, form into individual balls, press into loaf pan and bake at 350 until cooked through (approximately 22 minutes).
Let cook and freeze leftovers for the kids to pull out during the week!
Your daughter and I have a similar fondness for meatloaf. I like the idea of making minis and popping a few in the freezer for those days when a craving hits.
That’s a clever idea. Nice to see your post.
Thank you Cynthia…trying to find my way back to my blog!! I hope you are doing well and enjoying your summer.
Yearning for an update post, Tina! Give us an update about the family and the farm before Christmas, you busy woman you!
