Meatloaf Muffins

My family loves meatloaf. What a fun idea to take meatloaf and make it into personal-sized muffins. My kids loved this. Except my oldest. He didn't like the fact that it had barbecue sauce instead of  ketchup. I don't think he realizes how similar barbecue sauce and ketchup are. Kids can be funny sometimes. But it was a hit with the rest of the family. I loved it!

Meatloaf Muffins
2 lbs ground beef
1 medium onion, cut into chunks
2 ribs celery, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 green bell pepper, cut into a few pieces
1 large egg plus a splash of milk, beaten
1 cup plain bread crumbs
2 Tbsp grill seasoning (Montreal Steak Seasoning by McCormick)
1 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup salsa
1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 450. Place onion, celery, and bell pepper into a food processor. Pulse until vegetables are finely chopped. Place vegetables and ground beef in a large bowl. Add egg, beaten with milk, bread crumbs, and grill seasoning. In a separate bowl, mix together barbecue sauce, salsa, and worcestershire sauce. Pour half of the sauce mixture into the meat mixture. Mix the meatloaf together with your hands. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Use an ice cream scoop to fill each tin with meat. Top each meatloaf with a spoonful of extra sauce. Bake for 20 minutes.

Makes about 15 muffins
