Meatloaf Muffins

Here is the recipe for the Meatloaf Muffins I did and boy were they tasty!!

Ground beef, lean, 16 oz
Ketchup, Heinz, 4 tbsp
1 1/4 c. Rice Krispies
2 Eggs
Salt, 1 tsp
Pepper, black, 1 tbsp
Brown Sugar, 6 tsp packed
1 packet Lipton Onion Soup
1 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl, except 1 T of the ketchup and brown sugar. Using your hand works best! Fill 12 muffin tins. Mix remaining ketchup and brown sugar in a small bowl. Spoon over muffins. Bake 350 for 30 minutes.

Number of Servings: 8

Whatever you don't eat, just throw them in individual Ziploc sandwich bags and toss them in the freezer. Tasty and fairly low fat. You could even use ground turkey which I would have preferred but didn't have any. Pair this up with some mashed potatoes or steamed veggies! I can't wait until my garden starts producing some veggies! Enjoy! Oh..I am not a huge fan of the onion soup mix which is shocking since onions are one of my favorite things to eat..but it is just perfect in this recipe, not to overwhelming.

Life has been CRAZY!!!

Life has just been a whirl wind the past week or so! Lots going on and hopefully I will be able to fill you all in soon. We are all fabulous here at the Johnson home. Gracie and I took a fabulous walk today and the temperature couldn't have been more perfect! Luke is doing great! He was able to golf today which was the first time since August and he did amazing! Hopefully that means it will be a great golfing season for him:)

I am so excited to get my garden going! Luke is going to till it for me this weekend and then hopefully we can get some crops growing! Gracie is even excited about it this year! We planted some beans in cups awhile ago and they are huge and so fun to watch grow each and every day!

The hounds are doing great too and love to get out and go on walks!! I hope everyone gets a chance to enjoy this gorgeous weather! Know you are all loved!!

Oh...and I just made the most amazing meatloaf ever! Luke hates meatloaf so I NEVER make it but he is working nights this week so I attempted it. I got the recipe from a great website and it calls for Rice Krispies as your filler instead of oatmeal or bread crumbs which is half the carbs and calories and might I say..the best meatloaf ever! Soooo easy! I did it in a muffin tin to so I have a bunch of individual meatloafs I can toss in ziplocs and throw them in the freezer! They look like little cupcakes and that is the reason picky Miss Gracie is eating them now;)
