Mini Meatloaves

Here's a fun twist on the same ol', same ol' Meatloaf recipe. The recipe is actually quite simple, but the meat is baked in a muffin pan instead of a loaf pan! It was so easy and made such a delicious dinner. My 3-year-old loved it because they looked like big meatballs (she LOVES meatballs!). I made it a complete dinner by adding Au Gratin Potatoes, Green Beans and Crescent Rolls. Enjoy!

Mini Meatloaves (from

1 lb ground sirloin (could substitute with ground turkey!)
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
2/3 C italian breadcrumbs
1/3 C lemon juice (I did not have a lemon so I left it out)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese

Mix meat, onion, breadcrumbs, lemon juice and egg in large bowl. Pack mixture evenly into 6 greased cups of muffin tin. Distribute cheese evenly in a mound, over each mini loaf. Bake for 30 min @ 350 degrees, until done.
