I found this recipe over 20 years ago and have played with it for several years. It is really a versatile recipe.

Prep:

30 Min

Cook:

45 Min

Ingredients

1
recipe for your favorite meatloaf
1 c
diced onions
1 c
diced green pepper
1/2 c
shredded colby jack cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with baking spray.
2
Divide your meatloaf mixture into two portions. One portion should be about 1/2-3/4 of your mixture and the second portion will be the remaining mixture.
3
From the larger portion make twelve meatballs about the size of a golf ball. Place the meatballs in the muffin tin.
4
Press the meatballs into the muffin tin to make a shell. Make sure that there is a good size hole and that the meat goes up the sides of the tin.
5
Fill the hole with some of the onion, green pepper and cheese.
6
Lastly, make a lid out of the remaining meatloaf mixture. Be sure to seal the lid to the meatloaf mixture that is already in the tin.
7
Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 45 minutes.

Note: I have played with the meat mixture and found that ground turkey or pork work just as well as the ground beef. Also, I have played with the vegetables and the cheese. This is a very kid friendly dish.
