Individual Meatloaf. The best invention ever. Make lots of them, freeze the ones you are not going to eat. In a pinch for dinner, pull them out and in 30 minutes here you have dinner on the table. How fantastic is that?

When I started making individual meatloaf, I discover that not only they cook faster, but they will not dry out as a leftover.  However, when you have that individual serving it is always hard to stop before the last bite is all gone.

Green salad, peas, gratin potatoes, and roasted vegetables are a great side dish.


Because the loaves are smaller they will cook faster than anticipated.
