Also, consider crumbling the meatloaves. The next step is to spoon the mixture into the ball pepper or zucchini halves.

Steps Involved

1. Start by preheating the oven to 450 degrees F.

The next step is to place the ground beef into a large bowl. Place some celery and onion into a food processor. Then, cut the bell pepper in half, and remove the seeds. Then, throw the seeds in a garbage bowl. The next step is to cut the pepper into a few pieces and add them to the food processor. 

Pulse the processor blades to chop the vegetables in fine pieces. Then add them to the meat bowl. You will then have to add some eggs, bread crumbs and grill seasoning to the bowl. The next step is to mix the smoky barbecue sauce and with your sauce. 

Pour half the sauce mixture into the container that has the meatloaf mix. You will then have to mix the meatloaf by using your hands.

2. Then, clean up.

Brush a 12-muffin tin, with some vegetable oil and olive oil. Use an ice cream scoop to help add the meat to each tin. Ensure that you top each meatloaf with some additional sauce. Bake the mixture for 20 minutes. Cut one muffin open to text whether the middle is well cooked. As the meatloaf muffins bake, prepare some green beans in the microwave. Then, serve the meatloaf with some mashed potatoes and cream cheese as a side ingredient.

Cook’s Note: You can double this recipe, or even freeze it for future use. Once you are done with the baking, remove the meatloaf muffins from the pan, and let them cool. Then wrap each portion with some aluminum foil, and then freeze it. To reheat the meatloaf, put it overnight in a fridge or your counter for a few hours. Then, preheat the oven to about 400degrees F. Put the thawed muffins on a baking sheet and in foil packets to bake for 30 minutes. Open the foil carefully, and continue the cooking process for 5 minutes until warm.

Micro Cool Bacon and Red Beans

  • Put the bacon between paper towels, and microwave the food for 60 seconds on the “high” setting. Then, cool the bacon and cut it up.
  • Then, put some green beans in a bowl, and apply some extra virgin oil to the food. Also, consider adding some pepper and salt. The next step is to cover the bowl loosely with some plastic wrap and microwave the beans for a few minutes. Stir and cook the food for 5 minutes. Then, remove the cover and top green beans.

Smashed Potatoes and Cheese

  • Boil some potatoes until tender for a few minutes. As the water boils, and when the potatoes cook, you can be working on the meatloaf.
  • When the potatoes are tender, drain them and place them in a hot pot. Mash the potatoes using a potato masher, and consider using some milk as well. Then, add some cream cheese, and smash until the cheese blends with tomatoes thoroughly. The next step is to add some chives and scallions to help improve the flavour of food.

Why Make Meatloaf By Using A Muffin Pan

  • Meatloaf muffins are easy to make. They cook faster than ground meat that forms into a big fat loaf. It may take an average of 60 minutes to cook the meat to the centre. Also, waiting for long durations is often ideal, especially for what should be a speedy weeknight dinner. Thus, cooking the meatloaf in smaller scoops means that it’s easy to bake. 
  • There is also a better ratio of glaze to meat. Yes, just like other cooking enthusiasts, the glaze is among some of the critical aspects of a meatloaf. 
  • Individual portions of beef are fun to eat. Mini foods are not only cute, but an excellent way to eat your favourite meals.
