Italian Mini Meatloaf Recipe using KRAFT Fresh Take

Italian mini meatloaf

There are a few recipes that I have created that have become big hits in our house, this is an adaptation of one of them.  As soon as I heard about KRAFT Fresh Take I knew it would be perfect in my Italian Mini Meatloaf recipe, and I was right! This quick and well balanced meal is perfect for busy parents on the go.  If you are like me, I want my family to have delicious home cooked meals every night, but after 10 hours at work there are days when I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen.  Those are the nights when I depend on my tried and try 30 minute standbys like this one.

KRAFT Fresh Take is the perfect ingredient for a fantastic meatloaf.  The breadcrumb and cheese mixture is the perfect binder, and it makes the meatloaf delicious!  After school, my son and I took a trip to Kroger because they were having a great sale on KRAFT Fresh Take.  Be sure to check out our shopping experience by clicking on the photo below!

Kroger has a great sale going on and right now you can get 2 packages of KRAFT Fresh Take for $4.00.  Check out all the flavors that are available in the refrigerated section of your local grocery store.

I had so many great ideas going through my head on how I could use each one, but for this particular recipe I grabbed the Italian Parmesan recipe.

The breadcrumbs, cheese and the special blend of spices made for a great Italian style meatloaf.  It would be easy to adapt this recipe into meatballs to go with spaghetti.

I make mini loafs because they cook much faster in the oven.  Like I stated earlier, I work a long day and my son and I don’t get home until six o’clock.  Eating as a family is important to me, so my dinner’s need to be made in about a half an hour while my son is taking a bath or playing with his sister and daddy.  Adding a vegetable and some sweet potato fries makes this a nice, healthy, balanced meal for your family.

    OMG!!! This is awesome!! I have a package of this sitting in the fridge and I had no idea what to do with it (other than coat chicken, like the package says). I am so making this tomorrow!!!

    I have seen those Fresh Take packages at the grocery store and they all sound so good. You can’t go wrong with cheese & breadcrumbs! 😀 Using it in meatloaf is a great idea.

    I made this last night using the Bacon Cheddar Jack Fresh takes – the kids LOVED it! So easy I’ll definitely be trying it with the Italian parmesan :)
