I've always loved meatloaf- but never could find the right recipe. I especially hate all the fat left in the pan after a regular loaf is baked. This recipe is easy, absolutely delicious, and since you have 12 small "muffins" instead of 1 large loaf, there is not a lot of fat left in the bottom of the tin. If you don't want to stray from traditional meatloaf- go ahead and use ketchup instead- but I recommend trying the BBQ at least once- my family loves it! Also great for potlucks since everyone can have their own individual muffin!
