30 Minute Mini Meatloaves

Oh no! It’s 3:00 PM and what are you going to make for dinner? Nothing taken out of the freezer? I guess it’s take out again, right? Wrong!
It happens to all of us. We get busy, and before we know it, it’s nearing supper time. No need to fret, I have many meals that I can pull off quick!
Today’s treat:

30 Minute Mini Meatloaves

Meat loaves

  • 1-2 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 onion minced or 2 tbsp dried onion
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp worcester sauce 
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tsp chili powder
For the meat loaves:
Thaw your ground beef in lukewarm water . Rotate the meat every 30 minutes. Preheat your oven to 350. Once the ground beef is thawed, place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well. 

Really get in there and get all the meat mixed in.  Now for the trick: put you meat into muffin tins, filling them 3/4 full. 

This cuts the baking time down giving you a quick delicious supper. Mix the remaining 3 ingredients and brush over the mini meatloaves. 

Bake for 25 minutes, and serve next to veggies and your choice of sides. Our favourite is rice and steamed carrots!
