Tip: Cooking Tips: If using frozen vegetables in the meatloaf, make sure they are thoroughly thawed and drained and rinsed of their water. If not, all the water makes the meatloaf soggy.
Tips: Using a muffin tin helps with portion control and speeds up the cooking time. Leftover meatloaf makes great sandwiches for lunch the next day.
