Brown Sugar Meatloaf

I am going to try a new recipe this week! Normally, I make my Grandma's recipe for meatloaf, but I am going to live dangerously and switch things up. This new recipe has some room for growth. Based on the 4K reviews it's received, I am going to try:
- 1/4c Ketchup instead of 1/2c
- Baking in muffin pan at 350 for 30 minutes instead of loaf pan for 1 hr
- Adding celery (because I LOVE CELERY!)
- Swapping seasoned bread crumbs for crackers
- 1/2c milk to cut down on the possibility for mushiness
- 1 tbls Worcestershire in meat AND in glaze

I'll let you know how it turns out!

The meatloaf "cupcakes" (as my husband refers to them), tasted great. I was actually a bit short on the amount of ground beef --- note to self, make sure I get the right package out of the freezer to thaw next time. The size was extra convienient too. The meatloaf proportions were handy and having them as "cupcakes" made for easier packing for leftovers. The brown sugar was a sweet touch, but wasn't too overwhelming. We served it with cheesy broccoli and biscuits. I would like to add a second vegetable next time, but I am not sure which. Maybe beets, for their color.
