Cast your vote for Mini Meatloafs

Mini meatloaves put a modern spin on a classic family meal. They are simple to make, fun to serve, and easily customizable for a variety of tastes and preferences- from the picky eater to the veggie lover to the barbecue king. They make a great weeknight entree and reheat well as left overs.

Having a family get-together? Let your guests create their own personal meatloaf by providing a buffet of ingredients and small bowls. Have each guest fill his or her bowl with sauteed vegetables, sauces, spices, and even additional meat- such as bacon or ground sausage. Then mix the hamburger with the ingredients and bake as directed in this tutorial. Set up a "meatloaf bar" featuring sides (such as pasta or potatoes), different kinds of bread and buns, and a multitude of toppings, including additional sauces and sliced/shredded cheese. Your guests can enjoy smaller versions of the classic, or use their meatloaves to make cheeseburgers. Have taco lovers? Add tortillas to your meatloaf bar. Break up the warm meatloaf and serve with salsa, shredded lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, and sour cream.

* This recipe is also great when cooking for individuals with food restrictions.
