Cheddar-Stuffed Tex-Mex Meatloaf Muffins
I wanted a faster cooking meatloaf recipe, so I looked online and found the cooking times for meatloaf muffins. I adapted my Tex-Mex meatloaf recipe to fit and added a little cheddar cheese surprise to the middle. My family loved these and I know that yours will, too. You can also adapt your favorite meatloaf recipe. 30 minutes at 350 is all you need to remember. Enjoy!
1/4 c. bread crumbs
2 T. milk or beer
Salt and pepper
1 T. ketchup
1 garlic clove, minced
5-6 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 T. each of coriander, cumin, and chili powder
1 pound lean ground beef or ground turkey
6-8 1 inch cubes cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Beat egg in the bottom of a mixing bowl. Add breadcrumbs through seasonings. Mix well. Work in ground beef. Divide into six to eight portions and place in muffin tin. Press a cheddar cheese cube into the middle of each meatloaf muffin and form the meat over the top so the cheese is fully covered. Spread a small spoonful of salsa over the top of each meatloaf. Bake for 30 minutes.
Tip: Place a cookie sheet on the rack below the muffin tin to catch any drippings that may overflow from the meatloaf muffins.
