My Grandmother Selzer makes the best mini meat loaves! She has always been a really great cook. She loves to prepare meals for the whole family when we visit. These were prepared for us when we visited during the 4th of July. Chris loved them so much, I knew I had to have the recipe. I made them this past week and served them with mashed potatoes, and a salad with fresh ingredients from our Farmer's Market. Comfort food at it's best!
