I have said it before and I will say it again … Stuffed Peppers are one of my favorite food groups!  I have so many stuffed pepper variations, I think you could eat them every day of the week, and I would be perfectly fine with that!

Stuffed Pepper Meatloaf
This meatloaf has all of the components of stuffed peppers, and all of the flavors, too! Folks, this isn’t your Mother’s meatloaf.


These little meatloaf minis are inspired by my meatloaf.  I am not a big fan of other peoples meatloaf.  I know that sounds snotty — but I’m just not.  The idea of baked on ketchup isn’t really something I look forward to.  But this one?  This meatloaf I LOVE!! Why?  Because it’s like stuffed peppers — in meatloaf form!   

I have 2 other meatloaf recipes on my blog that my family loves, you should totally check those out, too!  My meatloaf recipes are not “typical.”  My Mom’s Pork Sausage Meatloaf is made with pork sausage and cheese.  It’s so good, and makes amazing sandwiches!!  Then there is my Taco Meatloaf.  Re-Think Taco Tuesday and do it meatloaf style! 


Pizza Meatloaf Minis
These Pizza Meatloaf Minis bake up in your cupcake pan, they are a quick and easy meal, with the flavors of pizza in a cute little meatloaf. Kids will love them!

This isn’t the first time I have made mini meatloaves in my muffin tins.  These Pizza Meatloaf Minis were a huge hit with my kiddos.  What’s not to love?  Plus — CHEESE.  I actually thought about added some shredded Parmesan cheese to my stuffed pepper meatloaf minis.  Next time I think I will to see what that is like?
