Italian Meat Loaves

We raise hogs, so pork is something I cook with a lot. These miniature meat loaves made with ground pork and Italian herbs are full of flavor. Our children especially like the topping of ketchup and Parmesan cheese. -Patricia Staudt, Marble Rock, Iowa

    This were very flavorful! I had never used pork in a meatloaf but it was a really nice change. I like the individual loaves since there are just two of us, it makes it easy to freeze part of it for later.

    My husband and I really liked these. They were full of flavor, more than I thought they would be! Instead of plain bread crumbs, I used Italian. The milk I used was 1%. Also, I didn't put ketchup on top... instead had leftover roasted garlic pasta sauce that I put on top and that was SO good. We really really liked this. I'll be making it again!

    My family enjoyed these. I made them smaller (used a 3 Tbsp scoop) so they baked up in about 20 minutes. I used half ground pork, half turkey. I liked the combination of Worcestershire sauce & Italian seasoning, but skipped the garlic and parmesan to keep all palates happy. I'm adding this to my "Quick Meals" folder.

    I use Sweet Baby Ray BBQ sauce instead of ketchup. And use 1 pound of ground beef 1 pound ground pork. Another family favorite.

    These are hands down one of the best additions I have ever added to my table. Everytime I fix these they are loved.
