Muffin Pan Mozzarella Stuffed Meatloaves

Yesterday I made a loaf of no knead bread to have with my supper. It turned out a little flatter than usual but still was pretty good. My supper would be four of the mini meatloaves and some potato onion stacks all in my muffin pan. While these were on the smoker I did a spaghetti squash in the oven. I don’t know why I was thinking an hour to an hour & half for the meatloaves. I put them on at 225 deg for a half hour; I then inserted a temp probe in a meatloaf. It was already at 140 deg so they would get done way before the potatoes would. I went to 325 deg & in 10 min I took the meatloaves out of the muffin pan & placed on the left side, cooler side of the grill and the potatoes on the right. After a total of an hour & 15 min the potatoes were fork tender so went inside I got the spaghetti squash ready & sliced the bread. I pulled the meatloaves & potatoes and served all up. The meatloaf recipe came from foodnetwork.com. I mixed all up & an addition was about 2 Tbs. of ketchup. I used 1 lb of ground chuck & ½ lb of pork sausage. I divided the mixture into fourths, formed a patty, added a ¾ inch chunk of fresh mozzarella cheese & folded the meat around. It made four 6 oz meatloaves & next time will go for 8 oz loaves. I had made some sauce from a 6oz can of tomato sauce, a good Tbs. of tomato paste, a Tbs. of balsamic vinegar & about ½ tsp. of Italian seasoning. I placed a spoonful on each meatloaf with 1/2 hour left to cook. I placed a spoonful on each plate & served the meatloaves on top. I can see now I need another muffin pan to do potatoes early & then add one with meat. Luckily I didn’t dry the meatloaves out & it all tasted pretty good. This will be a keeper recipe for me & next time will get the potatoes on an hour before & figure on 45 min to one hour additional for the meatloaves.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Meatloaf Ingrediants
