BBQ Meatloaf Muffins Mmmmm

Meatloaf.  Hmm, doesn't sound that appetizing does it?  But trust me, these BBQ Meatloaf Muffins are sooo delicious.  The inside is moist and flavorful and with these, more of my favorite part of meatloaf, the crusty exterior.  Aaannd...if it makes you feel better, you can just call them BBQ Meatballs, because hey, that works, too.

To get these muffins of yummy goodness started, grab a pound of ground beef, salt, pepper, and Tony's.

Add an egg beaten with a little milk

Mix some bbq sauce, picante sauce, and worcestershire sauce together in a separate bowl.  I really love what the picante sauce offers - spice, onions, bell peppers, and tomato all in one go.

Add half of the bbq mixture to the meat and a cup of bread crumbs.

Here, take your rings off, and use the kitchen's best tools - your hands - to mix it all together.

Form balls (about 2 inches in diameter) and place in a greased muffin tin.  (Makes 10 muffins)

Now is a good time to use my favorite soap.  Fresh Lemongrass from the Pass Christian Soap Co. 
Looks like I need to go get another bottle before I run out!

Spoon the remaining bbq mixture over the muffins and bake in a 425 degree oven for 20 minutes.

The whole kitchen will be smelling so good, and you'll just be dying to dig in, and then when you do, you'll burn your tongue because you were just a little too eager.  Oh wait... nevermind. 

I really hope you like these as much as we do!
