I know it's early but my dh is going for a promotion today and I want to make him a special dinner. He loves meatloaf but the last time I made it I wreaked it. I'm thinking meatloaf "muffins" because he also loves onions and nobody else in my house does.
So if you make meatloaf..how do you do it? Any tips?

i've done meatloaf the regular way, in the crockpot and in a muffin tin. 

The muffin tin meatloaf was a big hit!

I use canned meatloaf sauce, (cheating a little) and cook it in a regular loaf pan.

I add eggs,breadcrumbs(or crackers,oatmeal,breadcrumbs-whatever I have on hand),onions,salt,pepper and garlic powder.  I make a loaf and instead of ketchup or tomato sauce I use BBQ sauce. I also add green pepper  if I have it.  I also think a cream soup such as cream of mushroom would be good.

I make salsa meatloaf. Just 1 pound ground meat, 1 pint salsa, 1/3 cup ketchup and mustard, 1/2 a pack of saltines and graham crackers (crushed). Mix together, shape and bake @ 375* until done or golden brown.
