Homemade Meatloaf Muffins Recipe

My mom may kill me, but I have to admit it, she ruined meatloaf for me at a young age that literally I gagged every time I saw it on the dinner table during my youth.  My mom is a pretty good cook so I know that’s not it.  It’s more that it was just flavorless and loaded with white rice to help hold it together which to me at the time resembled maggots.  I know it was bad and yes I was a very dramatic kid.  So with that experience I figure why torture your family with a single recipe that everyone has to make and came up with this one.   This Homemade Meatloaf Muffins Recipe gives you the opportunity to create several different types of meatloaf that are dang delicious.  There is no way that someone at the dinner table won’t like at least one of these, IT’S IMPOSSIBLE!  So taking a traditional homemade meatloaf muffins recipe and turning it into single serving customized meatloaves was a ton of fun and ridiculously delicious!  Be sure to check out the video and recipe!
