meatloaf muffins

So I tried out a new receipe last night. I try out new recipes all the time actually. I just dont seem to post about them for some reason. The never ending question "What's for dinner?" is always a topic, right?

I went over to smashed peas and carrots and she talked about Meatloaf. She and I agree that meatloaf can be pretty gross. She had this recipe though and I thought it was worth a try.

The cast of characters:

1lb hamburger
1 box of stuffing
1 cup of water
about 3/4 cup of ketchup
and I put a smidge of Siracha on top of the ketchup for a kick

Mix up the hamburger, DRY stuffing and 1 cup of water (do NOT follow the recipe on the stuffing box). Get it all nice and smooshed.

Roll the meat mix into nice sized balls and smoosh (I am using smoosh a alot lol) it into greased muffin holes. Mine were kind of big, but you could probably have 12 muffin slots filled with smaller balls.

Put an indentation in the top of each ball and fill with ketchup. That is when I then added the Siracha.

Bake at 350* for 30 minutes. Take out and add some sharp cheddar cheese to the top of each and bake an additional 5-7 minutes until done.

I have to admit, these were pretty good. The meat was so moist and flavorful. The heat of the siracha added a great flavor pop.

Tonight I will try a new recipe from Ree over at Pioneer Woman ... I will let you know how that one turns out later on.

Have a great Friday.


  1. Enjoying your recipe experiments!

  2. Those look pretty good. Meatloaf is always a fail at my house. I may try this recipe and cut it in half to test it out!
