I'm a sucker for minis and always look for recipes that shrink a dish to individual portions. This recipe for mini meat loaves does just that! Instead of making one large loaf and slicing it into pieces, give each member of your family a mini meat loaf patty.
With help from a premade tomato sauce, these meat loaves come together quickly and simply. Tender crisp green beans round out the menu for this comforting classic meal. For the recipe, read more.
