Margot's Mini Meatloaf


     Tonight Margot is preparing cute little individual meatloaves for us and she is using her muffin tins to prepare them. She told us how she had lost her favorite sweet and sour meatloaf muffin tin recipe and on an internet search  she saw a Rachael Ray recipe which was  similar .This is an adaptation of that recipe. If any of you have a good sweet and sour meatloaf recipe she would be very grateful to have it shared. She loved that sweet and sour meatloaf.
chopping up the veggies
1 lb pork
1 lb ground beef
1 onion diced
2 stalks celery diced
1 egg
1 tsp milk
1 cup home made croutons made into bread crumbs
2 Tbs. Montréal steak seasoning (she says use your favorite beef seasoning)
A splash of Worcestershire sauce
She combines all these ingredients in a bowl
Ready to mix the ingredients
In another bowl she mixes
1 cup of South Carolina BBQ sauce
½ cup salsa
She uses ½ of this mixture in the meat mix and
half on top of the mini meat loaves.
Put a bit of the sauce on top
She sprays her muffin tins with pam and places 1/3 cup of the meat mixture in each tops each section with sauce and pops them in the oven

She cooks them at 450 degrees for 20-25 minutes

She is serving this with cauliflower that is whipped like mashed potatoes
and home made corn bread
Total under $16.00 for dinner for 5
