#sponsored post-I was given products for my recipe development, but all recipes and opinions are my own.
Meatloaf is an affordable way to entertain with-and my meatloaf is jazzed up. These amazing Omaha Steaks individual meatloaves, which give you a lot of bang (or food) for your buck. You can quickly heat them up in the microwave if short on time, or take it low and slow in the oven, heating them up while you take a minute to sit down and relax. Adding meatloaf to your buffet of foods offers variety and flavor, and costs less than two 12 packs of beer!
I took the two loaves and sliced them into chunks, adding cheese and arugula for a little kebob-like treat, similar to your traditional meatballs in a crockpot. Next I went a little fancy, making mini patty melts, with lots of cheddar cheese and a good sourdough bread. you can cut these into halves or thirds and have enough for the whole gang. Serve with chips, a plate of homemade french fries, or some bean dip, and you will have a feast meant for a king or queen. This would work great for a sleepover, a picnic to watch the sunset, or any occasion where you need good food fast.
