Baking Cups Meatloaf
Baking Cups Meatloaf
As most moms know, there are many days when we have to make dinner with what we have on hand. Most of the time I would rather poke pins in my eyes rather than take my 4-year-old son with me grocery shopping. As cute as he is (see pictures below), he is pretty much the worst when it comes to going to the grocery store. “MOM! I want that! MOM can we buy that? MOM, I want to get out of the cart! MOM, I’m sooooo bored!” Then for some reason, whenever I have him with me I always choose the line with the slowest cashier. Soooooo, I am pretty much an expert at making dinner with limited resources…it’s the easier option for me.
This mini-meatloaf recipe will not only get a thumbs up from your kids, it will leave you with plenty of time to get everything else done. It is super quick and easy to put together and the Reynolds® Baking Cups make cleanup a cinch!
All you need to make the mini meatloaves is:
- 1 lb lean ground meat (I used ground turkey but ground chicken or ground beef would work as well),
- 1 egg,
- 1 box of stuffing mix,
- 1 cup water,
- Reynolds® Baking Cups
Combine the meat, egg, stuffing mix and water in a bowl. Stir until combined.
Have your kiddos help you put the Reynolds® Baking Cups in your muffin tin.
They will feel so empowered that you let them “help” you with dinner!
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the meat mixture into the Reynolds® Baking Cups.
This is what they look like before going into the oven. Cook at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let the meatloaves cool for about 5 minutes.
Then serve! I used these cute Hefty® Zoo Pals® plates to make the dish more appetizing to my son. I used the little ears for the dipping sauces (barbecue sauce and ketchup).
Dipping, eating and…
AND no pans to scrub. What a relief.
These mini meatloaves would go well with mashed potatoes and some salad or broccoli. My daughter literally could NOT get enough of these. She loves stuffing and stuffed herself with these mini meatloaves and then asked for more J
There is something so satisfying about a meal that everyone will eat happily. As most moms realize that is a triumph in and of itself! And you can learn more about Reynolds® Baking Cups at ReynoldsKitchens.com.
