Meatloaf Muffins!

So, every time I do a recipe, I can’t help it, but I somehow stumble on a song about my dish.
Do you know the muffin man?
The muffin man, the muffin man?
Do you know the muffin man?
Who lives on Drury Lane?
Even Meat Loaf the singer comes to mind, oh I can picture him singing his hit song “I’d do anything for love”. I’m sure he meant; he’d do anything for these meatloaf muffins!
Well the beauty of these meatloaf muffins is that it’s so easy to put together. They even bake faster than the traditional meatloaf log. Baking them in the muffin tin cuts the baking time in half! So, meet the Meatloaf Muffins!
