Mini Meatloaves

Put together the mixture, topped with sauce and baked. While it was baking, prepped and boiled 2 yukon gold potatoes for mashed potatoes. While meatloaf was cooling cooked some peas. XB had 2 mini loaves and actually attempted the mashed potatoes (but still doesn't like them). Reduced sauce from original recipe but would still reduce more. I had more than half a kilo of ground beef so made 12 muffins and one in a ramekin. Also didn't have cheddar so used 1/2 c mozzarella and 2 slices swiss. *** for now, but with adjustments next time (reducing sugar and sauce), could be upped, given ease of preparation.
  • 3/4 c milk
  • 1/2 c quick oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t salt
  • 3/4 c grated cheese (cheddar or mozzarella+swiss)
  • ~1 lb ground beef
  • 1/3 c ketchup (reduced from 1/2 c, original = 3/4 c)
  • 1 T brown sugar (reduced from 1/8 c)
  • 2 T mustard (I used dijon, increased from 1 t)
  1. Combine milk and oats in bowl. Let soak for 5 minutes.
  2. Add egg, cheese and salt.
  3. Stir in beef.
  4. Lightly grease 12 cup muffin tin.
  5. Spoon beef into muffin cups.
  6. Prepare sauce: combine ketchup, sugar and mustard.
  7. Spread sauce on top of mini loaves.
  8. Bake for 30 min at 350F.
April 2015 - made this again but ran out of ketchup - had about 1/8 c. Added lots of mustard but still couldn't detect a kick. Could use more mustard and less sugar next time. Also ran out of quick oats and used about 2 T of flaked oats. Used frozen mozzrella as well.
