I seen this idea somewhere else before, and it was a big hit. I found this variation in the Kraft foods magazine that I get periodically, which has great ideas and recipes! Here is what you do.
1lb. lean ground beef (we use ground turkey)
1 pkg. Stuffing mix
1tsp. garlic powder
3/4 c barbecue sauce
3/4 c shreded cheese
Heat oven to 375. Mix your meat, stuffing mix, 1 cup water and 1 tsp. garlic powder. Press into muffin cups, recipe says to use all 12, but I only used 8. Make sure you spray your muffin pan. Make an indention in the center of each mini loaf with a spoon; fill with sauce. Bake for 30 minutes or until cooked through (160* F). Top with cheese; bake for 5 min. more or until cheese melts. Mmm..mmm Good!!
Let me tell you my kids were complaining before hand..."We don't like meatloaf..blah, blah, blah." They loved them as did my hubby!! Next time I'll probably use 2lbs of meat instead of 1lb.
