More About This Recipe

  • If your Mom served you meatloaf when you were growing up, why not show her how grown up you are now by making her these Mini Meatloaves?

    These adorable little meatloaf “muffins” come together so quickly and take very little time to cook, making them perfect for a take-along picnic lunch or dinner on Mother’s Day, or any other day of the year!

    Combine ground beef, onion, garlic, mushrooms, carrots, parsley, barbecue sauce, egg, bread crumbs, salt and pepper in a big bowl. Shape the meat into 1/2-cup balls.

    Place a ball in each greased muffin cup. Bake the meatloaf "muffins" for 10-12 minutes, or until cooked through.

    Serve them at room temperature with cold picnic salads, like coleslaw, potato salad, or macaroni salad. Alternately, serve them hot out of the oven, smothered in sauce, and make 'em super cute by piping on a mashed potato topper made from Betty Crocker Pouch Potatoes. Comfort food defined!

    No matter how you serve them, have a Happy Mother’s Day!
