Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. There will be hearts and flowers, chocolate and desserts, but what’s really central to a romantic dinner if your significant other and/or gal-pals aren’t headed out for dinner? A romantic entree of course! Hence, today’s recipe. Y’all can probably guess which of my characters would try this recipe. Keep reading to find out for sure. 😉

Treat your loved ones to this tasty Heart-Shaped Meatloaf recipe. This adorable Heart-Shaped Meatloaf is super simple and totally scrumptious.

What You Need
1/2 cup milk
1-1/4 cups (1/2 of 6-oz. pkg.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken
1 lb. ground beef

3/4 cup HEINZ Tomato Ketchup, divided

Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.

Add milk to stuffing mix in large bowl; stir. Let stand 5 min. Add meat, egg and 1/4 cup ketchup; mix just until blended.

Place 8 (2-inch) silicone heart-shaped molds on baking sheet; fill with meat mixture, adding about 1/2 cup meat mixture to each mold.

She’s highly intelligent (numbers are her thing) and she’s a real Mama Bear…err…Wolf when it comes to her pack, but she can’t cook for squat. Still, she gave this one a try. Mac and Liam bravely ate what she splattered on their plates. Mac swore to Liam he’d take them out for dinner next year. 😉 If you haven’t already, the start of Hannah and Mac and Liam’s entrance into the world is there for the reading in MOONSTRUCK: SECRETS.

  1. ROFL, I can totally see Hannah doing exactly that. Mac and Liam are better off taking her out to dinner for Valentine’s Day.

      Totally! LOL She even ordered the heart-shaped silicone molds special on-line and everything. Poor Hannah, but I do love her so much. I’ve got to put her in the April KW, since Mac and some of the others will be there. 😆
