Why, yes. This is a Pinterest inspired post. (Pin-spired??) I’d like to think that I was having a brilliant moment last week when I was roasting garlic in the muffin tins and thought “meatloaf!” that I was a culinary genius. Nope. I have seen this trick on Pinterest. I did add my own flair of BACON. Again, I’m pretty sure I saw that posted online somewhere, too.
To give myself some credit, I didn’t really have any instructions and kind of made it up as I went along … that counts for something, right??
Did you know that a half of a slice of bacon fits almost perfectly into the bottom of a muffin tin? Coincidence? I think not.
Basically, make meatloaf and scoop it into the muffin tin on top of the bacon. For me, I did the total easy recipe of a pound of ground beef, some bread crumbs and whatever spices float your boat, and a can of corn. I baked it all at 350 for about 45 minutes. Boom.
My husband likes a tomato sauce/cream of mushroom soup gravy for meatloaf and I obliged. Yum.
The bacon crisps up nicely and makes for perfect little meatloaf cupcakes of goodness. You will not regret trying this food experiment. Easy and tasty.
