For a long time I thought meatloaf was a mystery. How to serve it? (and most importantly) How to make it taste delicious? Leave it to mom. She came out for a visit after our second was born, and it was during that time when she taught me her meatloaf-ing ways. Since then, I have been making it for the family in a monthly or bi-monthy rotation. One of my favorite things about meatloaf is the fact that you can add in a heavy dose of vegetables, in other words, it’s a good way to help clean out the fridge should you need it. This time around I made the meatloaf mixture with fresh kale and cheddar cheese (everything’s better with cheese, no?) and opted to make it into little cups or bites sizes. This is a great way to make dinner ahead of time and to have some leftovers for the week. I even think these could be something to bring to that next game day celebration if you’re into that sort of thing –– Kale + Cheddar Meatloaf Cups.
