A few years back, I wrote a post featuring glazed carrots served with individual meat loaves, making a note that the meatloaf recipe I use most often is from the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten. Today I decided to post a meatloaf recipe, heavily influenced by Ms. Garten's recipe with just a few tweaks.
These mini meat loaves are comfort food. The recipe can be made into 1 large loaf. But I prefer the mini loaves because of the meatloaf to ketchup ratio. The baked ketchup glaze on the mini loaves allows for a bit of ketchup for every bite of meatloaf.
Hat's off to Ms. Garten for her cookbooks and recipes bringing joy to so many of us for all these years. I have every cookbook she has written. All are fabulous and well used in this house. She has taught us all to enjoy cooking and certainly to enjoy sharing food with loved ones.
