I had the chance to experiment with these two recipes the last few months and they are not just “Manfriend Approved”, they are straight up “Manfriend Loved”!
Muffin Pan Mini-Meatloaf, Topped with Mashed Potatoes and/or Bacon

The original website, http://www.stockpilingmoms.com/2012/04/pinterest-pin-of-the-day-meatloaf-in-a-muffin-tin/, lists lots of meatloaf recipes and I chose to go with the Paleo one this go around. It didn’t disappoint and I felt like it was a moderately “healthy” switch to make on the manfriend… who didn’t enjoyed it regardless of fad diet title. The only changes I made were removing the minis from the muffin pan and putting on a broiler pan for the last few minutes so all of the juices that had piled up would run off and to crisp the bacon. Manfriend even revisited these for leftovers on another day, so clearly that’s a win.
The mini-meatloaf idea made serving, cleanup and storage a breeze!
Creamed Spinach & Egg Pizza
Another Pinterest hit: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/195625177540005365/
I picked up raw pizza dough from our neighborhood pizza restaurant on the way home and even though the crust got a little away from me when transferring to the baking stone, this pizza tasted so good we didn’t care what the squiggly edges looked like. This is rich, so serve it by the slice with a salad on the side… if you can resist eating the whole thing!
