Mini, but mighty meaty.

I must confess, I make meatloaf using muffin pans.  Is that strange?  Probably.  See, sometimes it’s like Dinner Time Fight Club around here.  Everybody, and I mean everybody wants the crunchy bits.  How can I make everybody happy and support family harmony?

I made lasagna in the slow cooker. Seriously.
