This recipe for Cheesy Meatloaf Cups combines all the best elements of pizza (meat, sauce, and cheese) into a bite-size dish that can be baked in a muffin tin. Cheesy Meatloaf Cups would even work as appetizers with a side of pizza sauce to dip them into. The gooey burst of cheese when you bite into them is too tasty to resist. Plus it’s low-carb, so the health-conscious can enjoy the same great flavors!
