    Meatloaf muffins:
    1.5 lb lean ground beef (preferred to extra lean)
    3/4 c oatmeal (can use dry bread crumbs as well)
    160 ml 1% milk (or canned milk)
    1 egg
    1/4 cup fiber one cereal crushed
    1 tsp chili powder

3. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in centre.

    These were amazing!!! :) I added pepper flakes though to give it a little more heat :) ...I also added half a red pepper and half a green pepper to the meatloaf mixture :) - 4/4/12

    I love this recipe, but I'm not clear on the portion size. Is the jumbo the size of a regular cupcake you would buy at the store, or is jumbo bigger? We r trying to figure out the weight watchers points and we aren't sure on portion size. Thanks. - 2/4/11
