Expert Tips

Small individual meat cups bake faster than one large meat loaf. This recipe puts dinner on the table more quickly than if a traditional meat loaf recipe were used.

Prepare these meat cups one day ahead of time. Cover and refrigerate them. Uncover and bake meat cups, adding 3 to 5 minutes to baking time.

Serve these meat cups with french fries, cherry tomatoes and lemonade.
