Mini Meatloaves

These mini meatloaves are wonderful. You can make a large meatloaf instead, but these make it easier to create desired portion sizes and it also makes the baking time fly by.

I have also made quite a few meatloaves ahead of time to put in the freezer which is a real time saver (especially because I hate working with the raw meat) Another thing I have done with the meatloaf is cooked it in the crockpot on low for about 6 hrs. This helps keep the moisture and allows you to have dinner ready when you get home.
