Mini Meatloaves

These yummy meatloaves are healthier too! They are each only 1 oz and filled with veggies.... zucchini, carrots, onions and garlic. I rolled into balls, and somewhat smashed into a cupcake tin, then after baking 25 min at 350, I drained the grease, and squirted a bit of BBQ sauce on top, gave them 5 more min and done!
