While you may not instantly think of meatloaf for mouthwatering game day grub, this re-invented mini meatloaf recipe is sure to change your mind.
The meatloaves are incredibly flavorful and, more importantly, perfectly moist. This isn’t the dried meatloaf recipe from the ’50s that makes you want to cringe.
To create the football design, these mini meatloaves need to be shaped into ovals like footballs are. They’re then brushed with a no added sugar ketchup and baked in the oven until they’re cooked through.
Once the meatloaves have finished baking, they’re decorated with mozzarella string cheese pieces to create the football “lace” design on top. The best part about this recipe is that because this is a mini meatloaf recipe, you don’t have to worry about cutting this meatloaf up into smaller servings for family and friends.
Simply place the mini meatloaves on a tray and leave them out next to any other game day eats you’re serving for easy serving and enjoyment.
