When I was a kid, my mom used to make meatloaf more than I preferred. Like one time a year was more than I preferred. Don’t get me wrong – she did it right keeping it moist and flavorful. I just thought the idea of meat looking like bread was wrong.

Fast forward 25 years later, and I still don’t love the idea of meatloaf. But, mini meatloaves is a different story. I’ve convinced myself they’re large meatballs so now I like them!

You make them in a similar way to meatballs and they taste amazing with green beans and any kind of potatoes. There’s no reason to limit what you serve them with, even pasta or rice! I make them with a baked potato, but mashed would be just as tasty.
