Great idea for lunch or picnic. I’ve been doing this for years and make mine with a chunk of cheese (use your favorite) in the center. So many ways to change up the recipe. Tex Mex, Asian, etc. Any of your favorite burger recipes will work. To solve the grease problem, simply use the disposable foil cupcake pans. Punch small holes in them so the grease will escape during cooking. The pans can be hung over the edges of a regular baking pan so they are suspended above the base to allow the grease to drip. Lining the base pan with foil will also keep the clean up to a minimum.
I am giving four stars for the innovative “meatloaf muffin” idea. The meatloaf itself could have been a bit lighter and more flavorful, in my opinion. The second time I made it I added 2 eggs, 2 slices of bread and enough milk to completely soak the bread. I also put in a teaspoon of basil, a teaspoon of Oregano and a few roesmary leaves. With these changes, the muffins came out excellent.
I have been making meatloaf muffins for years. I tried this recipe and we liked it. As the recipe says, use LEAN ground beef or you will get grease in the tins. I will be making it again. Thanks for the recipe.
Fantastic! I used cream of mushroom soup, added in some grated parm cheese, some garlic powder, and parsley. Needed to adjust the bread crumbs to compensate for the creaminess of the soup. I sprayed the tin with non stick spray and had no oil or grease issues. This was quick and easy, and everyone loved it, even the picky eaters. I will certainly make this part of my meals when I am in the mood for meatloaf. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Serve these delicious meatloaf muffins with steamed green beans and roasted potato wedges for an at-home version of a blue-plate special.
Meatloaf in a Muffin Tin is the perfect way to cook meatloaf.
My family loves meatloaf and it is a super easy meal to prepare however when prepared in a loaf pan it takes so long. It heats up the house and often times I have to worry about if it is “done” in the middle or not.
When I mentioned it to my Mom she reminded me that she used to make meatloaf this way when we were little to save cooking time (always listen to your Mom).
I knew immediately by using meatloaf in a muffin tin my meatloaf worries were over. Be sure to Re-Pin this post.
How long do you bake and at what temp.?
It says 450 for 20 mins.
Why brush with oil if there will be fat cooking out?
If you use ground sirloin as suggested there won’t be much in the way of fat. Ground sirloin is a premium grade ground meat because of its low fat ratio.
Thanks it looks Good
Sounds like a lot of work and i dont have alll those ingredients.
Use what you have handy. The idea is to make the baking part as easy as possible and quick from mixing bowl to table.
Hmmm very interesting ,will try it …
I use deer meet . Add bell peppers and onions .Have to put an egg because meet has no fat in it . Mushroom soup and breadcrumbs .As you can tell I like it loaded . Have not tried the muffin tin . I think I will try it tonight though .
Mix with a package of ranch dressing
I use Hunts Meatloaf sauce which has great flavor and keeps the meatloaf moist.
Great idea. I love hunts tomato sauce.
I’ve never seen Hunt’s meatloaf sauce. I’m going to look for it, probably not out here in Cali 🙄
But it sounds good, Thank you 🙂
They sell it at Walmart
I”m just going to use my own meatloaf recipe and use the tins.
This would be great for freezing then take out when needed!👍👍
Perfect for a single.person! Pop ’em in the freezer after cooking. Gonna tweak your recipe a bit, but man… how simple! Thank you!
I use this size meatloaf to stuff green peppers after I parboil the peppers. then, cook the as stuffed peppers. Just the right size to fit in peppers.
I used Stove top stuffing mix for breadcrumbs. Tasted great! Just be sure to mix the bag before adding it. I had 1.3 pounds of meat, used half the bag of the mix.
Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!!!So looking forward to making them😊
What a great idea. I never thought of this before and I I’ve been cooking for 50 years. My daughter makes an excellent BBQ sauce and it would go great on the top of them. My mouth is watering just thinking about it
When I push you next button it takes me to a page for travel. So how do I get the recipe
Does anyone know how long to cook in large muffin tins ?
450 Degrees F. for 20 minutes…
Wonderful idea…….I love eat loaf….family does not……freeze these and I can have them as often as I want with no fuss or bother…..thanx..!!!!
I make these and once they are cool, I put them in a ziploc or container and freeze. I usually make s dozen at a time. Then I can pull out the amount I need. It works out great!
yes I will make this.
This is my perfect solution! My husband doesn’t really care for meat loaf but he will eat it cause he knows I love me some meatloaf! This makes clean up so much easier too. I can’t wait to make tonight and have mashed potatoes and green beans! Thanks! Keep the great, easy, and have a small amount of people eating!
