Red pepper jelly is a sweet yet spicy condiment that adds incredible flavor to these meatloaves. Pomegranate molasses is simply pomegranate juice that has been reduced down, with or without sugar, to a thick, intensely flavored syrup. It can often be found in the Middle Eastern section of the grocery store.
What others are saying
Jessica Scott says:
Super easy mini meat loafs. I'm used to eating it with ketchup, but the red pepper jelly was a good substitute. I'll probably make these again for game day!

This guilt-free recipe is perfect for a lunchtime meal prep. I wasn't sure about the pomegranate molasses working as I am used to a BBQ or ketchup sauce, but it gives off a well-balanced sweet and tart flavor to this savory dish. Also, everyone should have red pepper jelly on hand for most dishes (even just topped on scrambled eggs). It's a great alternative to ketchup and the heat is just right.
