But before I give you the recipe “, I want to give you some tips.

Some questions you may have:

Question one:

Can we substitute the milk for bouillon cube ( broth)? Of course, we can. Take one cube of beef or pork bouillon and dissolve in hot water. In addition, if you don’t have bouillon cube, just use beef or pork broth.

Question two:

Can we freeze them? Of course, we can! If you have leftovers, just freeze them. The taste won’t change. It is the perfect way to save time when you are trying to feed your family on a busy day.

Question three:

What kind of meat should I use for these little guys? Any! I use have beef ( 80/20) and have pork. As we know, beef is a little on the dry side if you use 80/20. So, my advice is to the same amount of pork make the meat softer ( 50% beef + 50% pork)

Next question:

What else I can add to the meat? Spices and seasoning produce a special taste. Basil or cayenne pepper ( for spicy meat lovers) also, cumin or curry powder. I like to use oregano. It makes a perfect taste for me. Also, you can use rosemary or sage and thyme. In addition, use sauce: Worcestershire or Tiger and act. My suggestion for people who like spicy food the Tiger sauce is the perfect option to add to meat.

                            Anything else you need to know? Yes! The most important                                                                                   TIPS:

first, when you are preparing meat and want to add eggs, just beat them. All these beaten eggs make the meat soft and crumbly.

Second, after you mix all the ingredients- make a big ball of meat and pick up from the bowl. Then, drop that big ball into the bowl. Repeat at least four times. After that, mix the meat again. This action makes the meat soft.

 

                                                                             Important:

 

Can you substitute bread crumbs for something else? Yes, you can. In short, if I don’t have bread crumbs at home I usually make them from white bread slices. Pour milk or bouillon ( broth) on a couple of slices of bread and wait for a few minutes. Then, transfer the mass of soaking bread to the meat.

In conclusion, all of these steps ensure the meat is soft, juicy and crumbly.

                           Forming stuffed mini meatloaves

 

Take a little meat and make a round shape. Then, smash it and put a little bit of stuffing. Then, close sides and make an oval shape.

                                                              Tips:

Use water on your hands because meat likes to stick to fingers ( hand).

Most important:

When forming an oval shape, after stuffing the meat, rub a drop of water on the connecting ends to ensure the meat sticks together because it can open back if dry.

In addition:

You can make not only an oval shape but round as well.

                                                               Tip:

Cut potatoes in 2 or 4 pieces because it takes them to bake longer than the meat.

And:

Cut carrots and celery in smaller pieces also slice the onion.

Then:

Preheat oven to 450 F and bake 35 – 45 min ( until potatoes are done). Place these stuffed mini meatloaves and potatoes on the plate and add some slices of tomatoes or any kind of vegetable.
