Random Eats: Meatloaf Burgers and Energy Bites
I wanted to share a couple of dishes we enjoyed this week, while I didn't change much of the original recipes, they were really good and I know our family will continue to enjoy them more often. First up are these delicious meatloaf burgers. I've had them on my menu for the past two weeks and finally got around to making them Monday night.
I followed the recipe for the most part, of course I left out the onions so my children wouldn't have a fit. I thought these were delicious, especially with a nice juicy tomato from the garden on top. Next time I think I'll be sneaking some bacon into these!
We also enjoyed these no-bake energy bites for snacks throughout the week. I apologize for not having a picture to show you, you'll just have to make them for yourself now and see. My good friend Angie has been making these for awhile now and I finally got around to trying them.
They're the perfect snack for when I'm craving something sweet. While I love chocolate, I'm not a fan of eating plain chocolate chips. I did add a very small amount to the mix, but I also substituted butterscotch chips. Yummy! I loved the peanut butter, butterscotch and chocolate combination in these. The kiddos even gobbled them up, we'll definitely have to keep these on hand for quick snacks!
Well I'm off to get started on a cake order I have for tomorrow, a sports themed first birthday. How fun! Have a great weekend!
