Mini Meatloaves – Kid Friendly

These beef mini-meatloaves are kid-friendly for many reasons: they're unadorned with adult spices, prepared in muffin tins to keep the portions manageable, and quite simply, they taste great in the tomato sauce. Pass extra Parmesan at the table. They are delicious served with ketchup, as well.
