Recipe Review and Works for me Wednesday

So I am doing a combo today...its a little late for Works for me Wednesday, but still...its Wednesday!

Ok... so for my recipe review today I decided to try a new meatloaf recipe I found...and of course I never follow the book so here is the actual recipe.

But alas....here are the changes I made...

I added celery, about 2 stalks chopped

Did a bit of onion and onion soup mix

omitted salt due to the soup

I didn't do the sauce on the bottom, that just doesn't make sense to me, wouldn't it get all baked and stuck? I made a glaze instead and added Worcestershire sauce

I also only did 1/2 cup milk

I used bread crumbs instead of saltines

Wow, even the same recipe? LOL

Well here is where the WFMW comes in... instead of using a loaf pan, I used muffin pans. It cuts the time down quiet a bit and it isn't any more difficult. The glaze does get baked on the top (anyone with ideas on how to prevent that??) but other than that, I like to do it this way sometimes.

As far as the actual taste of the dinner goes, I thought it was good. DH says it taste like my other recipe (which uses brown gravy instead of onion soup, and a few other changes....geez MEN!) lol Anyway, I am sure it was because my glaze was the same. I guess I can do meatloaf either way now depending on what I have. DS (11 months) ate this up! He loved himself some meatloaf and corn!
Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes (in muffin pans)
Will we make this again??....darn tootin :)

the meatballs I made monday tasted like meatloaf, then the girls ate ketchup with it, so they practically ate meatloaf. it was supposed to be spaghetti and meatballs, but changed last min, we had it with gravy and potatoes, mmmm. I wanted to make meatloaf this week, but now I am leaning against it since the meatballs. I am so going to try mini meatloafs like this!

This is my first time here. Must say you amaze me. I can't imagine the thought it takes to figure all that out and save so much. My husband would love you. He is good at that too. He tells me all the good deals so I can hunt them down. I must ask though...what you buy, is that all for your families use??? I can't imagine using that much salad dressing say in a year's time. I noticed the glucometer...is there a diabetic in your family? Just wondering...

Thanks for stopping by!

To answer your questions... I buy for lots of things, my family, I give things away to friends and family, and whatever I have left, I share the savings by offering seriously discounted stuff at my bi yearly garage sale. My friend Amanda and I are known for our garage sales and we get lots of repeat customers. This enables me to expand our budget and give other people great deals too!

Also, buying things I don't need or use often times lets me buy things I do. I earned $5 ecb with the glucose moniters so that gives me $5 more to spend on things I DO use.

Thanks for asking!
