I figured I could do it in half an hour if I made a few adjustments - basically just cutting the cooking time in half. I made the same recipes I always do (except for the roasted garlic of course). I'll let you in on my 'quick method' after I list the recipes.
I got this meatloaf recipe from my hubs Mom - who doesn't cook much - and who didn't give me measurements so bear with me.
Grandma's Meatloaf (modified slightly)
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
3 squirts mustard (I use yellow and I know how vague 'squirt' is but you can do it)
3 squirts ketchup
1/2 pack of saltine crackers (crumble them in your hands)
Onion salt (I use chopped onions b/c I am an onion FREAK!)
2 eggs (which I eliminate b/c of the egg allergies in my house)
All seasonings are to taste. Mix all ingredients together, form into a 9x13 pan. bake at 350 degrees for 45 min - 1 hour.
*Quick method. Recipe above - divide into 6. I use a Texas sized muffin pan - spray with Pam then put the 6 portions in the 6 muffin cups. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
Roasted Garlic Mashers
Potatoes (any kind you like)
1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
3 heads of roasted garlic
Peel and cut potatoes. Boil until fork tender. Drain potatoes and add all other ingredients and blend with your hand mixer until it's the consistency you like.
*Quickify - I used small red potatoes washed them, but didn't peel them. I quartered them (so they would cook faster) then followed the rest of the directions and instead of roasted garlic I used garlic powder. Start to finish 25 minutes.
