Awesome Mini Meatloaf Recipe

Where did meatloaf get such a bad reputation? It’s AMAZING! It’s like a big fluffy burger without the bun. Comfort food at its finest. What’s not to like? On it’s own, with ketchup, in a sandwich, with gravy… there are so many possibilities for such a simple supper.

Seriously, this has to be one of the most easy, simple things I’ve cooked in quite some time. And, you know me… I LOVE quick and easy*, especially with my busy schedule. I made mine in bulk with two pounds of ground beef (my grocery store has a delicious grass-fed brand that’s under $5 a pound, so I stocked up), which yields eight mini meatloaves. That’s four (FOUR!) dinners for me and Zach. In only 5 minutes of prep, and for about $10 total. The cost to benefit ratio here is outrageous!

You can make meatloaf with either breadcrumbs or oats. Since I usually make my own breadcrumbs by putting whole wheat bread in a food processor (to avoid the extra scary ingredients in most breadcrumbs), I opted for the quicker and easier option of oats this time. This is simply a mixture of ground beef, eggs, oats, salt, pepper, and a little soy sauce and hot sauce for an extra boost of flavor. The mixture is divided into eight parts (originally, I did six, which you can do if you have a big appetite. We wanted ours a little smaller next time) and formed into small loaves, with some individually wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen for later.

When you are ready to bake, place in a buttered baking dish (I have this one by Pyrex, pictured in the photos. It’s the perfect size for me and Zach and has a lid, so I can defrost the meatloaves covered in the fridge and just place them in the oven when I get home!), and add ketchup or barbecue sauce to top it off. Or, add nothing! It’s delicious plain as well 🙂 Enjoy!
