Updated on March 20, 2012

Mini Stuffed Meatloaves

Get out your cupcake pans it time to do some baking.......that's right baking, but there is one thing you should know.......Were not making cupcakes, we are making meatloaves using your cupcake pans and to take it up a notch were going to stuffed them with some cheese to give you that extra PUNCH.

When I was a child meatloaves were one of my favorite meals I could not wait to get home on the day my mother cook meatloaves, beef chicken or turkey it did not matter I just love them all and when we had left-overs the next day my mother would slice them then put cheese on them and turn them into a tasty sandwich, But today were going to put a twist on the meatloaves by stuffing them with cheddar cheese then putting them into a mini cupcake pan then baking them to perfection so come on and try this tasty recipe I'm sure you will love it.......Happy Eating.

      torrilynn thanks for the comments I really think it's a very good way to re-invent a good ole dish ,,,,,,some time I add a twist when I make these cupake loaves what I do is while my cupcake meatloaves are cooking I make a quick veggie chili a small pot then a small pot of mashed potatoes, ..I place the mashed potatoes on the bottom of the plate then I place the cupcake meatlloaf on top of the mash then ladle that with a little veggie chili my family loves it.

      @ wasbash annie this is a super simple dish and my family just love them.

      This is a great idea! I especially love the size. They are portion controlled and I can ration them out for my lunches without over-doing it. Super!!! :)

      It sounds like a great idea to me, too. I have always loved meatloaf. I would love to try this recipe sometime in the future. The cheese in the middle sounds really good.

      What a wonderful idea, especially if you're on a diet. All you have to do is eat a mini-one and save the rest for other meals. Voting this Up and Useful.
