Ingredients

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • Additional ketchup, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Mix the first 5 ingredients. Add beef; mix lightly but thoroughly. Press about 1/3 cupful into each of 12 ungreased muffin cups.
  2. Bake 15 minutes. Brush tops of loaves with 3 tablespoons ketchup; bake until a thermometer reads 160°, 5-7 minutes. If desired, serve with additional ketchup.

Can you freeze Meat Loaf Muffins?

Bake muffins without ketchup; cover and freeze on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet until firm. Transfer muffins to an airtight freezer container; return to freezer. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Place muffins on a greased shallow baking pan. Spread with ketchup. Bake in a preheated 350° oven until heated through.
