So I am not a huge meatloaf fan. We ate it growing up and it was never my favorite meal. Gray does enjoy it though so I thought these little meatloaf muffins from Cassie Craves was the perfect compromise to traditional meatloaf. These little guys were really really good. If only all meatloaf could be this delicious.
1 lb lean ground beef
1 1/2 cups freshly-shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
1 small can French-fried onions
1/2 cup BBQ sauce (divided)
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Heat oven to 400. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin. In a food processor place all of the fried onions and process until they are a crumbly mixture. In a bowl combine the ground beef, 1 cup of cheddar cheese, French fried onion ring crumbs, 1/4 cup of bbq sauce, egg, salt and pepper. Mix until everything is incorporated. Make small meatloaves and place in the muffin tins. Brush with the remaining bbq sauce. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Place back in the oven until the cheese is melted. Let the meatloaves sit for 5 minutes before removing from the tin.
