It's rewind Wednesday which means I'm pulling up a favorite to see if these Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf Bites are as good today as they were several years ago. I hadn't made them for about a year, so last week I whipped up a batch hoping to freeze a few. Nice try! Kenya, Chloe and their two friends, Frankie and Graham ate an entire batch in less than 15 minutes. It was fun watching them down the full recipe even though it left hubby and I eating leftovers. Next time I'm doubling to make sure I have plenty to go around!
Meatloaf is THE all-American food. I always think of it as the dish that you either love or absolutely hate. I've also seen hundreds of recipes for it and people are extremely passionate about what they think does and doesn't belong inside. My mother must have used an entire bottle of ketchup on hers. I'll refrain from commenting.
My version of meatloaf is perfect for the whole family, but especially for your little one. The best part is they're cooked in mini muffin pans, so they only take 20 minutes to bake. I pack mine with vegetables and since there's no salt or sugary ketchup, I add some cheese which makes every bite taste heavenly. Kenya had such a grin on his face when I gave him his first Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf Bite. He tried to shove the entire thing in his mouth, but luckily I cajoled him into letting me cut it up.
