Recipe Tip: Pour a small amount of olive oil in a dish for the kids to dip a brush in to coat the muffin cups...letting them pour could be a costly accident. Think ahead and help make this an enjoyable experience by keeping steps kid friendly and allowing lots of time for teaching as you go.
Let kids get creative with spices and flavors - add some Italian Spices to the meat mix, use mozzarella instead of cheddar and call it Pizza Meatloaf - a basil leaf on top of each meatloaf adds a gourmet flair. Add a homemade teriyaki or a sweet and sour sauce for an Asian inspired variation. You can also use another type of ground meat or veggie ground if that works better for your family. The choices are endless to inspire your palette.
