Testing Pillsbury's Recipe, Cheese -stuffed mini meat loaves. This is the magazine's picture.
This picture represents my finished meal, and you can see the recipe comes out just like the original magazine picture of the meal. I liked that, many recipes do not come out looking as featured in the magazine. Meat loaves had good flavor, lighter than a traditional recipe were you add the ground pork.The problem with the magazine's recipe is the cheese,. string cheese doesn't melt, so I would advise you to use just regular mozzarella cheese. Also I topped my loaves with ketchup before baking, this will give the mini meat loaves more flavor. Recipe for me was a four star and I would make this again ..
stir bread crumbs and 1 cup of the cooking sauce until well mixed;
let stand 5 minutes
Add beef, egg, green onions, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to bread crumb mixture until well mixed.
Spray 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray. Divide beef mixture evenly among cups (cups will be very full).
Push 1 piece of cheese into center of each loaf.
Place muffin pan on cookie sheet to catch any spillover. Bake about 30 minutes or
or until thermometer inserted in center of loaves in middle of muffin pan reads 160°F (outer loaves will be done sooner).
Meanwhile, heat remaining sauce until hot. Immediately remove loaves from muffin pan; spoon heated sauce over loaves. Serve with potatoes.
