Mini Meatloaves! Adorbs!
I made this recipe years ago and promptly forgot about it. I pulled it from one of those Kraft magazines they used to send out for free before Kraft got too cheap. I love it for the complete lack of ingredients. And it's versatile! Woo!
Take 1 lb. extra-lean ground beef, 1 pkg. (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix and 1 cup water and mix & match your recipe from these options:

to 375°F. Mix meat, stuffing mix, water and seasoning until well blended. Press into 12 muffin cups sprayed with cooking spray.
MAKE indentation in center of each with back of spoon; fill evenly with 3/4 cup add-ins.

It doesn't hurt that John has an unhealthy addiciton to Stove-Top, therefore I could mix it with potting soil and he'd go to town. I went with the BBQ sauce & cheddar option and it was mighty tasty. I can see this one sticking around for a few years. And btw, don't the Pam spray droplets look appetizing? Is there an opening for food photog for Food & Wine Magazine? I'm a shoo-in.
