Tasty Meatloaf Recipe (and a Fall Bazaar)

Nothing says fall like comfort food and today I’m sharing a yummy meatloaf recipe… with a fun twist!

A few weeks ago I was charged with making meatloaf for my church’s Wednesday Night Dinner… enough to feed 25-30 people.  In my home, my peeps like a SLAB of meatloaf.  Not a wimpy slice.  So how to figure out how many loaves to make since I’m not a good judge of how far meatloaf will go? 😉

Enter my cupcake pan.

What better way to make sure I had enough servings than to have individual servings of meatloaf ready?

But would it work?

Yes.  But it wasn’t pretty. 🙂

I made sure I had a jelly roll pan under my muffin tin to catch any grease that would bubble over, so luckily the mess was contained to the pans.

But, when all was said and done, these meatloaf cupcakes were pretty darn tasty… and easy to serve.

And here is my tasty meatloaf recipe… it’s equally as tasty in traditional loaf form!

Tasty Meatloaf

  • 2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 – 1.5 cups bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp garlic salt
  • 2 tsp Mrs Dash seasoning
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.  I strip off my rings and use my hands for this part to make sure everything is well mixed!  This mixture is enough to make 2 loaves or 18-20 “cupcakes”.  I mounded my “cupcakes” so they would be a good serving size.  Bake at 350 (55 minutes for loaves, 40 minutes for “cupcakes”).  Drain, let sit for 5 minutes and then serve.  Enjoy!

I also want to share some new Willow House products added to our ongoing Fall Bazaar… and there will be more to come later this month.  This is a great chance to do a little early Christmas shopping!

Hope you all had a good weekend.  Thank you so much for all your sweet and caring comments on Saturday as we remembered sweet Kaely.  They are so very much appreciated.

Have a great week, friends…


  1. The first thing I thought was “Meatloaf Muffins”! YUM! I love meatloaf–my family does not. These would be perfect to make and freeze for me!!

  2. Thank you! I LOVE meatloaf 🙂

  3. yum! This is how I’ve been making our meatloaf now too. So much easier to freeze it for later this way too.

  4. Ohhh, isn’t that clever?! We just had meatloaf last week. I should try it this way next time and freeze the extras!

  5. That also looks like a great way to make smaller servings since I’m generally just cooking for myself. Awesome idea!

  6. I’ve tried this too and two other bonuses from this approach…they cook faster than a larger loaf and each piece has its own perfect balance of browned edge and moist middle. 🙂

  7. Heidi..they actually look great…I love to make mini loafs “by hand”….love meatloaf…my favorite comfort food!

  8. I LOVE this idea. Totally pinning. Would be so easy to freeze these and just take a couple out when needed. LOVE!!!
