I have bacon wrapped meat loaf baking in muffin tins for individual portions in my oven.  Hoping it turns out.  Cross your fingers for me.

Well, I just googled "easy meat loaf recipes" and used one from allrecipes.com.  As far as wrapping it in bacon and cooking individual portions in muffin tins, I saw Gordon Ramsey do it on a UK Kitchen Nightmares episode on BBC America. The muffins tins cut down on cooking time.  You can also use muffin tins for making home made stuffing servings, too.  Here is the meatloaf recipe I'm using although I mixed ground turkey with ground sausage.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup dried bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1/3 cup ketchup

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the beef, egg, onion, milk and bread OR cracker crumbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste and place in a lightly greased 5x9 inch loaf pan, OR form into a loaf and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish.
  3. In a separate small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard and ketchup. Mix well and pour over the meatloaf.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour.

All kinds of camera issues so I can't take pics but the bacon wrapped and cooked in muffin tins was BRILLIANT.  I think the turkey/sausage combo would have been okay had I not used Italian seasoned bread crumbs, also.  (It was all I had.)  It doesn't taste much like meat loaf although it still tastes good.  Would totally recommend taking your favorite meat loaf recipe and wrapping it in bacon and baking it in muffin tins.  Its super nice and cooked quickly.

I have a friend who bakes her brownies in muffin tins because she likes the crunchy edges.
