P*A*D*-Day 11- So bored

It has been WAY too cold to go anywhere here. And it has been too cold in this apartment to even get out from under the cover. So not much to take pictures of. But I did manage to make a delicious dinner. I made Mexican style mini meat-loaves. They were very very good. At least Kevin was impressed. I'm going to make Italian style mini meat-loves later this week. They were very easy and very yummy. I recommend this quick and delicious dish.

Take 1 lb. extra lean ground beef, 1 pkg. (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix and 1 cup water and mix & match your recipe from these options...

seasoning option
add-in choices
cheese possibilities

Italian Style
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
3/4 cup spaghetti sauce
3/4 cup shredded mozzerella

Mexican Style
2 tsp. chili powder
3/4 cup salsa
3/4 cup shredded mexican cheese

Greek Style
1 tsp dried oregano leaves
3/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

American style
1 tsp. garlic powder
3/4 cup barbecue sauce
3/4 cup cheddar cheese

PREHEAT oven to 375°F. Mix meat, stuffing mix, water and the seasoning until well blended. Press evenly into 12 medium muffin cups sprayed with cooking spray; make an indentation in center of each with back of spoon.

SPOON add-ins evenly into indentations in meatloaves.

BAKE 30 min. or until meatloaves are cooked through (160°F). Top evenly with cheese; continue baking 5 min. or until cheese is melted. Let stand 10 min. before serving.
