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. Read More

These were very good but there is one flaw. The grease in the pan had no where to go so it overflows and burns the top of your pan to a crisp. And, if you do not put a cookie sheet under the muffin pan the greas drips into your oven and catches on fire... Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

The flavor was great but one hour of bake time was way too long. I only baked them for 30 min and they were dried up and hard on the outside of the meat. Read More

These were great. I didn't have all the ingrediants so I used on pkg. of Lipton's Beefy Onion soup mix 3/4 C water and a head or roasted garlic from last night. They smelled great while cooking and the flavor is not bad at all. I did frost them with mashed potatoes and sprinkled cooked corn on the top. I tried putting a piece of cheese in a couple but it melted and seeped out so next time I'll try a chunk of cheese instead of a quartered cheese slice. Can't wait to pack them in my lunch tomorrow!

My family and I loved this meatloaf. The only change I made was this. My kids are picky eaters when it comes to vegetables so I pureed a can of Veg-all with the soup and added it to the meatloaf mixture. Yummmy! Read More
