Meatloaf Minis

My kids are not easy to please when it comes to meatloaf. Well, I finally found a meatloaf recipe that my whole family can enjoy! It's really good. One thing I like about it is that it's really quick to fix! You will notice that there are 3 options for flavor. We have tried the american style so far...

total time: 45 minutes
makes: 6 servings, 2 meatloaves each.

1 lb. extra lean ground beef
1 pkg. (6 oz.) Stove Top Stuffing Mix
1 cup water
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix meat, stuffing mix, water and add-inn (see options below). Press into 12 muffin cups sprayed with cooking spray.
Make an indentation in center of each meatloaf with spoon; fill with sauce (see options below).
Bake 30 minutes or until cooked through. Top with cheese; continue baking 5 min. or until cheese is melted.

Option: American Style
1 tsp garlic powder stirred into 3/4 cup barbecue sauce

Option: Italian Style
1 tsp. italian seasoning stirred into 3/4 cup spaghetti sauce

Option: Mexican Style
2 tsp. chili powder stirred into 3/4 cup thick 'n chunky salsa

I've been visiting some of the other blogs listed on the KJV blog directory. I noticed that you haven't blog for awhile. I want to encourage you that there are still people out here in cyber space who would like to see some more delicious and economical recipes. God bless. -- Julie

I have a similar recipe from Kr*ft, but hadn't read of these variations. Next time I'll have to try one of the ones you posted. If you think of it, add in some BBQ sauce with the meat and stuffing mix, and then spread some on top before you bake 'em up; that's my hubby's favorite way to have meatloaf.
