Herb and Cheese Meatloaf Muffins

So many of my recipes come together on the spot without much of a plan. I furiously begin writing down ingredients and taking photos. These meatloaf muffins started out as meatballs. But halfway through making them I thought it would be nice to have a jumbo meatball. And then I realized that a muffin tin would make the perfect perch for them while they baked. Thus| they went into the oven as meatballs and came out as muffins!

I used a TON of fresh herbs in this recipe ¡ª lots of parsley and dill that I had leftover and baby spinach for extra nutrition. This is a great way to use up the herbs in your garden as Summer comes to a close or the other half of a bunch from a recipe. I also added a green pepper and jalape?o for spice| but you could add any Summer veggies you like ¡ª chopped finely!

Notes

When you’re 2/3 of the way finished with cooking| bring them out and add parmesan cheese. It takes the flavor (and appearance) up a notch!
