Coincidently, you can use this meatloaf recipe to make one regular size meatloaf, individual meatloaves, or meatballs. I use the same mixture for all three.
If you’re in a hurry, most definitely try individual meatloaves or meatballs since they cook much faster!
This is a good recipe for weeknight dinners. It comes together quickly; you may even consider mixing it together in the morning then simply baking it for dinner.
Additionally, leftover meatloaf makes a great sandwich! Simply reheat a slice of meatloaf in a hot skillet with a little oil so it won’t stick. Then, you can serve it on a hamburger bun and dress it as I would a burger. Yum!
