Baby Meatloaves With Bacon Crisps

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 25 mins

These babies are so moist, you can easily double the recipe just increase the ground meat to 3 pounds and double all of the other ingredients this will give you 8 mini meatloaves. Use only half and half or full-fat milk for this, it will produce a moisture meatloaf. For an extra kick add in a couple tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese to the meat mixture.

These had great flavor. I had to substitute crackers for bread because we didn't have any in the house. I increased them to 1 cup crackers and yet they were still a bit too moist. I loved the single serving size and the little bit of zing in the ketchup. I will make these again with bread.
