Meatloaf is one of the ultimate comfort foods. We have a great way to still enjoy it and save calories. Plus, there’s nearly 30g of protein per serving! Instead of a whole loaf, this recipe uses a muffin tin to prepare smaller, individualized portions. It’s still delicious, and great for the whole family!
