Ingredients
  • 1 lb. extra-lean ground beef (or vegetarian crumble as pictured)
  • 1 package of stuffing mix
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup of bbq sauce (divided)
  • ½ cheddar cheese or cheese blend
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup of water
  • salt and pepper
  • For optional mashed potato topping
  • 3 cups of prepared mashed potatoes and ¼ cup of frozen peas.
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season beef to taste with salt and pepper. Mix beef (or veggie crumble), stuffing mix, egg, garlic powder, ¼ cup of bbq sauce, and water in a large bowl.
  2. Spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Divide mixture into 12 muffin tin cups and use your finger to make an indentation in each muffin.
  3. Fill the indents evenly with the remaining ¼ cup of bbq sauce.
  4. Bake for about 25-30 minutes (or for vegetarian version, 20 minutes.) Top each evenly with shredded cheese and bake for 5 more minutes.
  5. Let cool for 5 minutes. This step is for those who are doing the optional mashed potato topping. I used a ziplock bag with a cut off tip to "frost" the meatloaves. Simply fill bag with mashed potatoes, cut off corner of the bag and frost
