Every Tuesday I am going to post recipes that I have tried and love, or really want to try! Feel free to post your recipe reviews after trying! This mini-meatloaf recipe is by far my favorite (besides my mom’s meatloaf…)  The oats and cheese make it!

Mini Meatloaves

Serves 8

  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tsp milk
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dried onion flakes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1-2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the egg, 3/4 cup milk, cheese, oats,  and salt. Let sit for a few minutes to let the oatmeal absorb some of the liquid.  Add parsley, onion flakes, garlic powder and breadcrumbs.  If mixture looks too dry, add the 2 tsp of milk.  Add the ground beef, mixing well, and form this mixture into eight miniature meatloaves. Place these in a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish.
  3. In a separate small bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Stir thoroughly and spread over each meatloaf.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes or until done. Don’t overcook!
Serve with fresh steamed asparagus and a baked potato!

    Love the idea of min-meatloaf. Kind of like an ultra smooth hamburger. I like it when the beef is more finely ground and so holds together tightly without just falling apart.
