Once I saw how much my kids loved my Cheeseburger Meatloaf Muffins, I decided to create a pizza-inspired version topped with shredded mozzarella and bite-sized pepperoni pieces. Bell peppers, sausage or ham would also be great on these muffin-sized meatloaves.

    Hi there, love this. Would you like to share this with the other participants in Food on Friday over at Carole’s Chatter? I have a weekly link up party – each week there is a different ingredient or theme. The current theme is Beef!

    You can see upcoming themes in one of the pages at the top of my home page. If you would like to join in the fun please schedule a reminder for each week. The collection starts at 7am Friday New Zealand time – which might be some time Thursday your time – I do find time zones quite confusing. Hope to see you soon. Cheers, Carole
