What's for dinner tonight? The age old question. Sometimes one of the most dreaded for me. I had another of the Cooking Light Double Issue meals the other night and it would be just perfect again tonight! Let me begin by saying I am not a big fan of meatloaf. I will make it for my family but usually not eat it. However, this recipe for Cheesy Meat Loaf Minis is really tasty. It has a couple of different ingredients that make it really good. I have actually prepared it twice. The first time following the recipe and the second time, using what I had on hand. That meant using ground venison in of the ground sirloin and also using three Laughing Cow Light cheese wedges rather than the 3 oz white cheddar cheese. Both ways were successes. If you are wondering what to start for dinner tonight, here's your answer! Let me know if you try it!
