Recipe: Meat Loaf Miniatures

I am not a big fan of meatloaf but a friend brought this to me after we had Kee Kee and I feel in love with it.  Now that I don't eat meat I just make it for the family.

Meat Loaf Miniatures

  • 1 cup of Ketchup
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 4 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3 cups Crispix Cereal, crushed
  • 3 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 pounds of lean ground beef
In a large bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar and mustard.  Remove 1/2 cup for topping; set aside.  Add the eggs, Worcestershire sauce, cereal and seasonings to remaining ketchup mixture and mix well.

Press meat mixture into 18 muffin cups (about 1/3 cup each).  Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes.  Drizzle with reserved ketchup mixture; bake 10 minutes longer or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees.

Server desired number of meat loaves.  Cool remaining loaves; freeze.  Transfer to freezer bags; freeze for up to 3 months.

To use frozen meat loaves:   Completely thaw in the refrigerator.  Place loaves in a greased baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until heated through, or cover and microwave on high for 1 minute or until heated through.

**You could probably do this as a big loaf too.  Sometimes mine do fall apart but they are delicious!
