Homemade meatloaf with a yummy sweet twist. I didn't have any breadcrumbs for the traditional meatloaf, so I searched my cabinets and came up with this meatloaf. It was a huge hit with the kids. It's sweet but still a meatloaf. The cornmeal and brown sugar just made it out of this world! Also, once cooked, they are very easy to store and pack up for leftovers. Serve with some smashed potatoes and green beans.

  • Place ground beef, egg, milk, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; mix with your hands until well combined. Mix in cornmeal, brown sugar, onion, and ketchup until incorporated. Press mixture firmly into the prepared muffin cups, filling each cup 3/4 full.

  • Bake in the oven until no longer pink in the center, about 50 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before popping out of the muffin tin.
