Meatloaf is even better when it's shrunk down into individual servings. This meatloaf is wrapped in bacon and baked in a muffin tin, for tender portions of meatloaf with a crunchy exterior and a slightly sweet, glazed topping.
Even though there's bacon in this recipe, these little muffins are actually pretty good for you. Grated carrots add extra moisture and sweetness to low-fat ground beef for a dish that you can feel good about serving to your whole family.
These little versions of everyone's favorite comfort food are easily portable and great to make ahead and freeze. Just grab as many as you need to reheat in the oven when you're ready to serve them.
