These take a little planning ahead but are well worth it. The recipe makes a lot so it is good for a party or larger get-together. They can be frozen then reheated in the oven when needed.

1 lb. ground beef OR ground turkey
1 pkg. meatloaf seasoning mix
1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
3 tbsp. dried chives

3 tbsp. dried chives


2-3 c. flour
