(I need to get a better photo of these, my sister graciously sent me this one off her phone because I keep forgetting to take one when we make it.)
My kids HATE meatloaf! They seriously hear the word and gag but they actually really like the stuff! The stigma of television and peers have wired my childrens brains into thinking that meatloaf is some disgusting food that worms are going to crawl out of and eat them before they eat it, so I had to get creative with how I prepare and what I call meatloaf.
For my kids everything tastes better when its made in a muffin tin! Somehow disgusting meatloaf has become super yummy meat cakes that they have no problem eating it! I really like preparing meals in muffin tins because they are the perfect portion for kids. This recipe is super easy to make and tastes really great. Serve with your favorite veggies and you have yourself a great meal!
Are my kids the only ones that refuse to eat food because of peer pressure? If not, how do you get your kids to eat things that they don’t like just because of what it’s called?
