My BBQ Bacon Mini Meatloaves are a great weeknight dinner but they also look fancy enough for a special occasion. They are the perfect size for kids and with bacon and cheddar, they are approved by the ones in my house.
Most of the recipes I create are to please my family at dinnertime. I have 2 kids who love meatloaf and BBQ sauce, 3 who love cheddar, and all 4 love bacon.
Therefore, this is a pretty popular meal in my house. I’ve wanted to try this recipe in muffin tins for awhile and I finally did tonight. I love these as mini meatloaves because everyone gets a good amount of the barbecue bacon cheddar topping.
