Muffin Tin Turkey Meatloaves

I love a good classic meatloaf but what I love even more is these individual muffin tin meatloaves.  They’re not only a hit with kids but they also cook up faster than a traditional loaf.  Most often, I use ground turkey when I make meatloaf, but you can substitute ground beef if you’d like.  They’ll taste delicious either way!

For a new twist on meatloaf that even the kids will love, just scoop your meat mixture into muffin tins!
