Mini Meat Loaves

Boy oh boy!  These are delicious!  My husband was already eating and oohing and ahhing over his meat loaf before I had finished taking pictures.  He said these reminded him of the meatballs that I make but in meatloaf form.  These were so tender and moist.  I will definitely be making this recipe again!  I did make a few changes to the recipe.  I used ground turkey instead of beef and I baked them for about 20 minutes instead of 15 minutes.  When I make these again I will add a few more spices and some garlic.

I found this recipe in my February issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine.  I’m so glad that I ripped out this one!  This is a great recipe for a week night because it goes together and bakes so quickly.  I paired this with some mashed potatoes with mozarella and broccoli.  I suggest you try this recipe soon!  Sorry about the blurry picture.  All of my pictures turned out blurry!  Argh!

Enjoy!
