You can also make a Mexican version by adding coriander, cumin, chili powder, capsicums, and/or peppers to the mixture.

We used mozzarella and parmesan cheese for this recipe, but you can give your favorite cheese or blend a try. Bacon strips or slices work well too.

    How many muffins per serving? Just 1?

    Step 3 indicates 2 muffins per serving. Therefore if you're making 6 servings, you'll make 12 meatloaf muffins and 2 is a serving.

    I flattened them out and baked them. They looked like baked hamburgers but the old man loved them.
