These Stuffed Pepper Meatloaf Minis cook up quickly in a muffin tin. They have all of the flavors of stuffed peppers in a little mini meatloaves.
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!
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!
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?
