She {hearts} Mini-Meatloafs

We are big meatloaf fans in our family! When I found this recipe on Pinterest (originally from www.icanteachmychild.com), I knew we had to give it a try!

I normally make a big meatloaf, but EVERYONE said that these were better. So, this recipe is a keeper in our family and I wanted to share it with you!

Ingredients needed for Mini-Meatloafs:

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1beef bouillon cube, ground
  • 1 tsp Worchestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp mustard

Ingredients for Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp mustard

I love that most of the ingredients I always have on hand, and on top of that, the recipe is easy! It can be assembled during the kids’ naptime and then just baked before dinner :) All you do is:

  1. Combine all the ingredients for meatloaf, using your hands.
  2. Form into small balls and put in greased muffin tins (made 18 meatloaf muffins).
  3. Top each mini meatloaf with 1 tbsp of the sauce (mixed separately).
  4. Cook at 350 for about 30 minutes, or until no longer pink in center.

All 18 mini meatloafs were gone in no time, and given the thumbs-up approval from our family! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

    These are adorable! We all love meatloaf, and those ingredients are indeed basic ones that most of us — myself included — have in the kitchen at all times. I’m definitely adding this on Pinterest. Thanks for sharing! :)

    Yummy! I will have to try this. :)

  3. Thanks for sharing, definitely will be trying this one! In our family this will probably last about three days :) I’m not a big meat eater, so it’s just my husband and my ‘not-so-big-on-meat-either’ two year old.
