    Toby said these where “the shit” (his words). He said they were awesome and I can’t wait to try them and neither can Darryl.

  2. Sue says:

    They were very good and very easy to make. I had all the ingredients on hand which made it even better. I notice the nutrition info doesn’t say what a serving size is so I’ll try and find out.

    • Laura says:

      Just a guess… the serving size is probably “per cupcake” – since they’re made in cupcake pans. So, maybe 3/4 cup(ish)?

      I love the idea that kids each get their own. They think that’s neat when they do. I asked Christopher about these and he smiled and said they were good and he got his own. When I make these I’m going to use a pot pie size. That will be perfect for us. I’m afraid “someone” who lives here would walk by and think they’d be a good “snack” to pop in his mouth. I’m going to have these this week.

    this looks indeed very good and easy. I think it is fun to use the muffin cups for it! Good idea.

  4. Laura says:

    I’m going to have to try this one. I love making flavored meatloaf. I get bored with plain ol’ “meatloaf flavored” meatloaf.

    I really like the idea of using the muffin cups. We started doing that a while back when I bought Rachel Ray’s cookbook for kids. She’s got a Meatloaf Cupcake recipe in there that I did with Josh, and he thought it was just so cool that we did them in cupcake pans! It’s kind of a kick, really. Gets away from the boring old loaf.

    I was planning on making meatloaf tonight, so I may have to give these a try! Perfect little size for Hunter 😀 I will let you know how we like them

  6. Nikki says:

    I plan on making these the next time I plan meatloaf for supper. I will have to leave the salsa out of some of them though…I know Jason won’t like that. But that’s easy enough, I don’t mind.
