"These are part of my OAMC rotation. My kids love these. I normally double this recipe as they go fast at my house."
Serving Size: 1 (107 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 12
"Clever and fast to make! Perfect for kids. I'd add more spice to the meat or sauce for adults. These would be better for dinner (with a fork) - not sure about them as a party appetizer. I only needed 1/4 cup sauce; it wouldn't have stuck together well with the full half cup. I pressed the bottom of a shot glass into the muffins to make the hole for the cheese."
"I really enjoyed these. I used a chunk of mozzerella cheese instead of shredded. I used homemade pizza sauce that I think was a little bland so I think it resulted in a blander overall flavor. Next time and there will be a next time I am going to use a more flavorful pizza sauce. Thanks for a great OAMC recipe that I would love to tweak, maybe try BBQ sauce and cheddar cheese."
"Very easy and tasty. The mixture was quite wet, but after being refrigerated overnight it was thicker. I divided it into 12 blobs in a muffin pan, then pushed a piece of mozza into the centre of each one. They stuck to the pan a little when being removed, but a spoon run around the edges and bottom worked pretty well. I will try this another time with some chopped pizza veggies added to the meat, like peppers and mushrooms."
"Really good! I used spaghetti sauce, extra Italian seasoning (because I had plain breadcrumbs), added some minced garlic and some onion powder, and used old cheddar cheese. Also scaled the recipe to use only 1 lb of beef (still used a whole egg and 1/4 cup breadcrumbs though). Held together perfectly, and I found them quite tasty without adding extra cheese or sauce. My 11 month old gobbled one up, too. Will make again!"
"What a great appitizer type meal this makes Bonnette. I followed your recipe as stated and even set out a bowl of additional pizza sauce with mozzarella on top that I had nuked for two minutes. Served these cheesy bread sticks. Thanks Bonnette! Made for 123Hits~"
"Easy to make and the whole family loved it! Will definitely double the recipe next time and freeze to have on hand for quick week night dinners."
"My kids and I really enjoyed these. I'm a dad that likes to experiment with the kids on Wednesdays dinner. We tried this recipe for the first time and really enjoyed them. For a bit of a kick we added some green bell pepper, onions and some chopped up pepperoni to add an extra bit of flavor. We served with some Romanesc broccoli and Cauliflower in a Gorgonzola cream sauce and garlic bread. I would highly recommend."
"These were very quick, easy to make, and were perfect for my toddler son. There was a lot of grease in the muffin tin after cooking, so I think next time I will drain them on paper towels before serving. To increase the pizza flavor, I think next time I will also add canned mushrooms and pepperoni slices. Thanks for posting!"
"I really liked this recipe! I added peppers and onion to the meat mixture and in half of them I added a slice of pepperoni before adding the cheese (the hubby LOVES pepperoni). I ended up having to cook them closer to 25 minutes but I'm pretty sure that was my temperamental oven. They turned out wonderful and had a great pizza flavor. My 4-year-old devoured them! I will be making these again :)"
"This is a quick and easy meal to make!
I brown bag my lunch and always look to try different things. The pizza meatloaf cups are so yummy!
I did add a tad more of seasoning.
I plan to make this quite often!!"
"Made these tonight for later in the week. They smell and look so good. I added chopped garlic, diced onion (teeny tiny so daughter don't have a fit), and a diced pepper. Teeny tiny also. I also mixed the cheese into the burger and on top. It's kind of like a meatball in a muffin pan. Can't wait to try them."
"These were quite good and the kids enjoyed them. I had a problem trying to drain the grease from the muffin cups though. During the last 5 minutes of cooking, a lot of grease had accumulated in the tin even though I used lean beef. I tried to tip the pan just a bit to drain the fat but then the cheese wanted to slide off. I ended up removing the meatloaves from the muffin tray and putting them on a cookie sheet with a rack instead. That worked to get the rest of the grease out. No one else mentioned this problem in their reviews so if you have a tip for me I hope you'll share it. I will try this recipe again as we did like it. I served extra sauce that was warmed up on the side. Thx!"
"These are really tasty and simple to make! They are wonderful to have for dinner along with a side dish of pasta. I made my baked fettuccini to have with them. They would also be delicious as an appetizer for a football party or as a snack for kids. Really, they are good any time! Thanks for sharing."
"Entire family loved them. Added some minced onion, garlic, and parsley. Would cut amount of pizza sauce, as it was too wet with a 1/2 cup. Quick, easy and tasty!"
"These were great, easy to throw together and my kids loved them. They were a tad greasy even though I used 93% lean beef but I put them on some paper towels after I popped them out of the muffin tin. Next time I might sneak in some shredded zucchini to up the healthiness.,"
"Made as directed and they are wonderful! Will be making often."
"What can I say that has not already been said? :) Kids loved it. Many variations available - great base. Thanks."
"Made this tonight when I was in a hurry and looking for something to do with my defrosting package of hamburger. This recipe can really be adjusted to personal tastes. Lots of potential to add favorite flavors, seasonings and small pizza toppings!"
"Good but not great."
