This is my fav...I love the mozzarella in the middle...and shredding that potato for this mix makes a nice texture. You can use Brown gravy...but we like to make ketchup glaze instead (water, ketchup, brown sugar last few minutes of cooking.

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons salt

Make meatloaf in a muffin pan- it cooks in 15 minutes! (Thank you Rachel Ray)

Ingredients

1 2/3 to 1 3/4 pounds ground sirloin
1 medium onion, cut into chunks
... 2 ribs celery from the heart of the stalk, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 green bell pepper
1 large egg plus a splash of milk, beaten
1 cup plain bread crumbs
2 tablespoons grill seasoning (recommended: Montreal Steak Seasoning by McCormick)
1 cup smoky barbecue sauce
1/2 cup tomato salsa
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Vegetable oil or extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

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

I adapted this from my ex-MIL's recipe (she uses torn bread pieces instead of oatmeal - I like the consistency of the oatmeal much better):

 

Meatloaf

2 eggs
2 lbs. ground beef
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 t dill weed
about 3/4 cup oatmeal
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
1/4 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup 7-up

Mix. Bake at 350 for 45 to 60 minutes.  

 

 
 
And last week, I made these for the first time, using a mix of very lean ground beef and ground turkey, and they're fantastic!:

I dont use a muffin pan but do something similar a lot of times. I just make them into dinner roll size and put them on a baking sheet.
