Mini Meatloaves

Mini Meatloaves! So cute! =) And they taste amazing too!
First you chop up the capsicum
Then the onions.. John is my hand model/kitchen hand today because his hands are prettier =P
Add thyme salt and pepper
Fry it baby!
Mix everything in a large bowl: onions, capsicums, eggs, breadcrumbs and beef mince
It's kind of gross when you think of them as meat muffins eh? =X
MEAT MUFFINSSSSS. Oh I forgot to take a picture but you have to put some tomato sauce on top of each one.
Fresh from the oven! Best way to have them. They are really filling too. I ate 239082382098 4 before I had to admit defeat.

The recipe can be found here and I've pasted it below =)

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 cup chopped yellow onion
1 cup chopped green pepper
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1.5 pounds ground beef
1/2 cup plain dry bread crumbs
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup ketchup

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Heat the olive oil in a medium saute pan. Add the onions, green pepper, thyme, salt, and pepper and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes, until the onions are translucent but not brown.

Remove the pan from the heat, and add the Worcestershire sauce and tomato paste. Allow to cool slightly.

In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, onion and green pepper mixture, bread crumbs, and eggs, and mix by hand until the ingredients are well distributed.

Place foil liners into a 12-cup muffin pan and shape individual portions of meatloaf to fit each muffin cup. Spread about a tablespoon of ketchup on the top of each portion.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until the internal temperature is 155-160 degrees and the meatloaves are cooked through. Serve hot.
