Mini Meatloaves

Meatloaf can be a time consuming dish to make. You can cut down on the cooking time by making individual meatloaves in a muffin tin. Use your favorite meatloaf recipe, or try mine. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.

Mini Meatloaves
Meatloaf
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
2/3 cup quick oats OR 1 c fine bread crumbs
1/2 cup onion finely chopped OR 1 TBSP dried minced onion
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp poultry seasoning
1 tsp salt 1/8 tsp pepper
Glaze
2/3 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup ketchup
1 1/2 tsp mustard (optional)

1. Combine all meatloaf ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well.
2. Combine the glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Mix well.
3. Divide meat mixture evenly among 12 muffin cups. Spread glaze evenly over top of meat loaves (I use a muffin scoop for this).
4. Place muffin tray on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and drain.
Serve with mashed potatoes. Makes 12 mini loaves.
