I am so excited! I finally put together a meatloaf that my family will eat!

Sweet & Sour Mini Meatloaves

I have to tell you a secret: Before we got married I promised I would never make meatloaf.

How bad am I to break a prenuptial agreement?

You wanna know another secret?

He liked it.

Mmm hmmm.

Score!

Cheap healthy food, another new meal idea, a challenge met!

And to make it easier to cook just how much we’ll eat, I made it in silicone muffin pans.

Yeah, I overfilled them a little but the sauce still fit. Just barely!

I cooked just how many we wanted in one pan and froze the rest in another.
If you needed your pans for other things, you can transfer them to a freezer bag once they’re frozen.
On serving day, just thaw in the fridge and cook the same as fresh.
