Make Ahead: Muffin Tin Meatloaves

I needed to make dinner ahead of time and have it ready to be easily reheated. The only thing I had left on the meal plan was meatloaf, but wanted to make it super easy for my husband so I made Muffin Tin Meatloaves.

I made my regular meatloaf recipe, then split it up into a standard muffin tin and baked them for 20 mins at 350 degrees.

The verdict?
I thought this worked great for me early in the day, because it was a short baking time, and it was easy just to pop the mini meatloaves on the plate and reheat in the microwave when I got home later at night. My husband didn't have an opinion either way, but I thought it was nice! :) Plus the ketchup swirls were fun to make!

I am sharing this at Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays, Tasty Tuesdays, and Ultimate Recipe Swap.
