Meatloaf Muffins

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

These little meatloaf muffins are a cinch to make. Kids and husbands alike love them. I usually double the batch and freeze the leftovers for quick lunches. You can use beef or turkey.I always use ground turkey, and they come out moist and flavorful.And I use Herb Stuffing. I buy it in bulk and I think the herb has the best flavor.

Baked Chicken

This is a go to recipe for busy nights.Or lazy ones.Easy as pie and so yummy! This recipe is one that  I love because it is super easy and you can use any combo of  herbs and spices. I have found that if I just use salt, pepper and garlic powder, it gives it a comfort food taste that my boys love. I usually have a breast or two left over, so I make  chicken salad for the next days lunch. This recipe easily doubles or triples for a crowd.
