Hey there, friends! Welcome back to the Kid Tested, Mom Approved Link-Up Party! Today’s host, the lovely Colleen over at Meet the Sullivan’s, is talking all about family friendly foods…a category that I know I can always use some help with 🙂 I can’t wait to see what Colleen has come up with–she’s a great cook and always has the best recipes to share!
Growing up I was a super picky eater. Picky as in I’m pretty sure I never ordered anything other than chicken fingers or grilled cheese at a restaurant until I was maybe 17. I soooo wish I was kidding about this fact, but I’m not! One thing that I would actually eat when I was little was meatloaf, so my poor mom ended up making it a lot. When she told me recently that she made it in a muffin pan and then froze the single-servings, I thought she was brilliant! I mean, this was before Pinterest, people!!!!
So while she was in town a couple of weeks ago, my mom agreed to help me make some of her famous meatloaf and figure out the recipe. She normally just guesses on the measurements–something that the cooking-impaired like me would never dream of 🙂
So now I give you Gigi’s Muffin Tin Meatloaf recipe for all of your little eaters–picky or not!
|Hmmm…can you tell I shop at Wal-Mart? And that I’m cheap?!? 😉|
What you’ll need:
1lb lean ground beef
3/4 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup milk
1 T worcestershire sauce
1 t onion flakes
1/4 cup ketchup (+ up to 1/4 more to taste)
Preheat your over to 350.
Mix all ingredients together…
|And this is why I will never be a food blogger…so appetizing, right?!|
Divide into standard muffin pan…
Bake for 30 minutes at 350…
Ignore the fact that my oven needs to be cleaned…
Serve…or allow to cool before freezing.
And that’s all there is to it, friends! So for those lunches or dinners where you’re wondering what to fix your kiddos, just warm up a single serving of meatloaf and let them enjoy!
A special thanks to Gigi herself for the help on this one 🙂
