Jalapeno-cheese Stuffed Mini Meatloaf

Jalapeno-cheese Stuffed Mini Meatloaf is hands down one of my favorite meatloaves to date. I’m not even a meatloaf lover and I have already made this dish twice and it was awesome each time. I made it the first time with cheddar cheese because that’s what I had on hand but the second time, we used pepper-jack and it was just delicious.

My favorite part is the fresh jalapeno slices baked on top. I just love the extra little kick these give the dish. This is a little too spicy for my youngest but the rest of my family just loves it.

We serve these along with mashed potatoes and a vegetable but I think these would also be great as a slider with fries or tots, too.

Ingredients
  

  • 3 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 small onion , finely diced
  • 2 jalapenos , diced, optional
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup half & half
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2-3 cloves garlic , minced
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
  • 1- 1 1/2 cups pepper jack or cheddar cheese
  • 1 lb. uncooked bacon , cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 jalapeno , sliced for garnish, optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray 2 muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Carefully mix beef, onion, diced jalapeno, eggs, breadcrumbs, half & half, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and salt/pepper in a large bowl.
  • Form the mix into 2 oz meatballs to ensure an even amount of the meat mixture for each muffin cup. Carefully press the 3 oz meat mixture in your hands making a small pocket in the center.
  • Add some cheese into the center of each and form the meat back into a ball concealing the cheese. Press it together to ensure it is sealed and place into the muffin tin and gently press down to form a loaf.
