these mini meatloaves are an absolute FAVORITE for my husband and me. the sweet ketchup sauce is really awesome. the fact that you can freeze them is a real plus and we take out 5 or so at a time. i usually double the recipe.

This recipe should be on your "short list" of dishes to serve to a crowd! Super moist and full of flavor, we love them served with mashed potatoes and a cooked veggie. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
