There is nothing worse than trying to cook dinner and have to scour the internet in search for recipes that are suitable for the whole family and your little monsters will eat! 😬 Worse still having to cook two different meals! 🙀
Who has time for all this cooking? 🤷♀️
I used to be in this situation, so I know how frustrating it can be and not to mention time consuming, and after all the cooking they don’t even eat any of the meals! 🤦🏼♀️😡😩
But don’t despair, I’m here to tell you that it’s possible to cook only one meal that the whole family will enjoy, it is packed full of nutritious ingredients and can be taken to school or work for a lovely nourishing snack! 😋
This recipe is so easy and quick that you will not know what to do with all the spare time! 🤩
The recipe is called Meat and veggies meatloaf, and before you switch off or scroll past, hear me out!
I know meatloaf is not everyone cup of tea, my husband didn’t really enjoy it very much, he used to complain that it was too fatty and heavy. 🙄 but when i made this special muffin tin meatloaf he LOVED it! 🙏
Because they are cooked in small individual portions and are packed with yummy vegetables they retain moisture and are lovely and healthy.
The best thing is you can add as little or as much vegetables you want and whatever veggies you have in the fridge.
The topping really takes this humble meatloaf to the next level!
