I too made these in a muffin pan (12). I tasted a little flake as it came out of the oven, tasted good. I added a large garlic clove with my other food processed veggies. I lIke the little crunch from the waterchestnuts. I'll be keeping this recipe. The store I went to didn't have ground pork, so I bought a boneless sirloin chop and ground the pork myself.
Best meatloaf we've ever had. Ok so I made a lot of changes. The only meat I used was 1 lb of lean beef. I used the veggies I had (1 onion, 3 carrots, 1 bell pepper) and doubled the ginger. I kept the hoisin, salt, brown rice, and egg the same, but rather than forming a loaf I used a miniature muffin pan to make 24 of these little bad boys. Baked at 375 for only 20 min and was a huge hit with my whole family, including my super picky 9 year old sister in law. So so so good, and I normally hate meatloaf. Pros: Cheap, easy, moist, adaptable Cons: Gone too quickly
