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.
