It’s no secret that I dislike meatloaf. I’ve said it many times but the rest of the family loves it so I am continuously trying to find different ways to make it more exciting. Mostly for me, so I will eat it.
I came across the idea of putting the meatloaf in the pepper rings over at this blog. I thought it was neat and very portion friendly so I took the idea and used my own meatloaf recipe in the rings. She put cheese on the top of hers but I was using cheese in another dish so I didn’t want to overwhelming the meal with cheese.
I love how much easier it was to bake. Time to cook is one of my pet peeves for regular meatloaf. That and it’s a lot of meat… in a loaf shape. Ack! This recipe is fast to prepare and easy to bake so it can be made during a week night. While they are baking, make your sides.
I served mine with grilled zucchini from the garden and a cauliflower gratin. So good! You can substitute lean ground beef or ground chicken if that is your taste preference.
