Venison Meatloaf Muffins

meatloaf

We served these delicious Venison Meatloaf muffins with a garden salad and some fresh fruit for a family pleasing meal!  Meatloaf is one of America’s classic comfort foods, how awesome that we’re serving it up in a muffin tin! 

As a topping, we used organic catchup… It’s much better than the regular catch up because it does not contain artificial ingredients are high fructose corn syrup. We like to shop at Aldi and they make a great version there.

I found this recipe to be very easy to make and convenient. The meatloaf muffins can be popped out and saved to use all week long.  This meatloaf recipe can be made ahead, wrapped individually, and even frozen. Pull them out when you need a quick, healthy, filling dinner.
