This is the perfect recipe for weekends. I have the mini loaf pans which made for great presentation and great taste. I just did a new copy for my recipe drawer for the times I have overnighters as it's so easy to prepare. Next time around going to give it a go in my muffin tins.

I scaled back for one serve and used 125 grams of heart smart mince and cooked it in one of the holes of a Texas muffin pan and baked for 25 minutes and the end result was a perfect size, moist and delicious mini meat loaf for one. Thank you Luvcookn, made for Pick Me Tag Game.

This has already been requested again. So quick to make since you make the "mini" meatloaves instead of one large one. The flavor is wonderful. Really enjoyed the bite of the horseradish! Thanks for sharing!!
