Individual Meatloaves

Jump to Recipe

It doesn’t get much more classic comfort food than meatloaf! This is my small twist on the classic by adding in some bacon and making them pre-portioned. These Individual Meatloaves also bring together three types of meats to grown a depth of flavor your whole family is going to love.

Some people view meatloaf as just another way to eat a burger, when in reality they are not really that much the same. Meatloaf is a much denser and more moist preparation than a burger typically is, which is why it doesn’t need to be put on a bun. Also leftovers do make a great sandwich! I like the added bacon on top for a bit of crunch as well as the flavor.

Individual Meatloaves

I went full classic comfort meals when I served these meatloaves. Oven roasted asparagus that I drizzled with avocado oil and sprinkled with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. I also slow baked some large russet potatoes (300degF for 3 hours) and served with butter, salt, pepper, cheddar cheese, sour cream and a sprinkle of chives. And don’t forget the dinner rolls!

Now Let’s Get Cookin’!
