Meat Muffins are perfect to make en masse and keep stored in the fridge for when you are in a pinch for lunch. I like em just because it's fun to say :)

What I realize about meatloaf is the breadcrumbs & eggs are just ways to extend the meat. I remember my mom's hamburgers being more like meatloaf burgers - just so we could get one more out of the bunch. The great thing is that it's really a blank canvas you can be as healthy as you'd like or to the other side with a few extra ingredients.

The base
Ground Meat (turkey, chicken, veal, pork, beef)
eggs (1-2 per lb)
breadcrumbs (1/2 cup per lb)
tomato sauce/ketchup (1/2 cup per lb)
onions (3/4 cup per lb)

additions ... where it gets fun
it's endless

I made a batch of 1/2 & 1/2
6 for adam 5 for me
