Easy Meatloaf Recipe

I have found an easy meatloaf recipe that you are going to love and if you looking for a cheap meal idea then this is it.
I try to make meatloaf often for the fact that ground beef is inexpensive and filling.
The only downfall to a great meatloaf is the bake time.
I’m in a hurry these days and most nights I want quick dinner ideas prepared and on the table fast or we would be eating at 8:00pm, which in my house is bedtime for the kids (YEAH!!)
So how do you make an easy meatloaf recipe? Simple, mini meatloaves baked in a muffin pan.
I know, I asked myself the same thing, why didn’t I think of that one!
The bake time is cut in half.
And of course the possibilities of what you add to the recipe are endless.
A shout out to Kraft Kitchens for coming up with some of the best food recipes.
And at less than $5 to prepare this is a cheap family meal for dinner!
