Mini Pizza Meatloaves Reinvented Recipe

Awhile back when I first started blogging, I posted the recipe for Mini Pizza Meatloaves. This one is a different variation from the original. I added Italian sausage to the ground beef since I had some extra on hand. I love this version just as much as the original so I thought I'd post this as well. This would be great as a main dish, or an appetizer!

What you need:
1 pound ground beef
1 Italian sausage link, casing removed
1/4 c. bread crumbs
1/3 c. pizza sauce plus additional for serving
1/2 c. onion, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c. green olives, sliced
5 white mushrooms, diced
2 c. mozzarella cheese
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
salt and pepper

Directions:
In a bowl, add all ingredients except cheese. Combine ingredients until mixed well. Divide ground beef mixture evenly into a 12 cup muffin pan. Add a small scoop of sauce to the top of each meatloaf and cover completely with the shredded mozzarella. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. To serve: Cover the bottom of a plate with a couple spoonfuls of pizza sauce and serve mini meatloafs on top! Enjoy!!
