Marvelous Mini Meatloaves

I made these last night-- they were super easy, and my family loved them! My twins kept calling them "cut cakes" :)


1 lb extra lean ground beef
1 package (16 oz) Stove Top Stuffing Mix
1 cup water
1 tsp Italian seasoning
3/4 cup spaghetti sauce
shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 375. Mix meat, stuffing, water and seasoning until well blended. (** for extra kick add 2 Tbsp A1 steak sauce to meat mixture before shaping it into meatloaves.***)Press evenly into medium muffin pan sprayed with cooking spray. Make an indention in the center of each with the back of a spoon.

Spoon the spaghetti sauce evenly into indentations in meatloaves.

Bake 30 minutes. Top evenly with cheese, continue to bake for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Instead of Italian seasoning, spaghetti sauce, and mozzarella, try:

Fiesta: 2 tsp chili power, 3/4 cup salsa. and Mexican style cheese

Mediterranean: 1 tsp dried oregano leaves, 3/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers, crumbled feta

BBQ: 1 tsp garlic powder, 3/4 cup BBQ sauce, shredded cheddar

What a fun idea! And it involves two things I love: meatloaf and cut-cakes.

Tried them and they are yummy. Also a good dinner to take to friends (did that too).
