Sunny's Cheat Sheet Mini Meatloaves with Sweet Potatoes & Broccoli

This recipe is based on a Sunny Anderson recipe I saw on an old episode of one of her shows. It was an interesting twist on meatloaf and came complete with its own side dish, so no thinking about what you are gonna serve with it.

3 cloves Garlic (grated)

2 scallions (chopped)

1 slice of white bread (cut into tiny cubes)

1 large egg
