Simple Sunday Supper - A New Spin On Meatloaf

I love surfing the Food Network site for recipes, especially when I find a new twist on a traditional favorite.  Here is a fast and fun meatloaf to try:

Recipe courtesy of Rachael Ray
TotalTime:  30 min
Active:  10 min
Yield:  6 servings
Level: Easy


Micro-way-cool Bacon and Green Beans
Smashed Potatoes and Cream Cheese:


Watch how to make this recipe.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Put ground beef into a big bowl. Put onion and celery into a food processor. Cut the bell pepper in half, rip out the seeds and throw them into your garbage bowl. Cut the pepper into a few pieces and add to the food processor. Pulse the processor blades to finely chop the vegetables into very small pieces then add them to the meat bowl. Add egg, beaten with milk, bread crumbs and grill seasoning to the bowl. Next, mix together the smoky barbecue sauce, the salsa and the Worcestershire sauce. Pour half the sauce mixture into the bowl with the meatloaf mix. Mix the meatloaf together with your hands. Wash up. Brush a 12-muffin tin (1/2-cup each) with vegetable oil or extra-virgin olive oil. Use an ice cream scoop to help you fill meat into a each tin. Top each meat loaf with a spoonful of extra sauce. Bake about 20 minutes. Cut open 1 muffin to test that the middle is cooked through. While meatloaf muffins bake, make green beans in the microwave. Serve meatloaf with Smashed Potatoes and Cream Cheese on the side, too.

Good morning Lisa.  Well now this is a first for me. Barbecue sauce and salsa.  Sounds so good.  I'll see if the boss agrees

Love meat loaf, Lisa, so had to check in on this recipe. I like to put mustard and salsa and horseradish in mine. I never use bread crumbs and it always comes out just fine.

Printed this one out for my wife to see.

She makes several different ones now.

Good morning Lisa. This one goes to the wife! She is the one who can cook. I am the one who can eat! Enjoy your day!

That actually looks & sounds pretty good. I'm not a big meatloaf fan but my hubby is. I'll have to surprise him with this & see what he thinks.

Lisa I have never been a fan of meatloaf, but this receipt even sounds good to me.

I have made meatloaf in muffin tins and they came out like big meatballs. I must have done something wrong. I did like the size and individual portions.

Hi Lisa - there are lots of good meatloaf recipes.  I can try this next.  I just did one from Ina on the Food Network.
