How to make it

  • In large bowl combine all meatloaf ingredients, using half the can of tomato sauce, or 2oz. Alton Brown, I believe our hands are the best kitchen tools, so I recommend using them to mix this well! :) See Photo
  • Form into 6-8 mini loaves and place on cooling rack(lightly sprayed with no stick spray) over cookie sheet.(cover bottom of cooking sheet with aluminum foil, if desired, for easier clean up) See Photo
  • Bake at 350 for about 40-50 minutes until done.
  • For Optional Glaze

  • Combine all glaze ingredients in medium bowl.
  • Spoon or brush over meat loaves at about 20 minutes into cooking. See Photo

    Delicious! I used lamb and ground beef, Italian bread crumbs, horseradish mustard and cheddar cheese. I used 1/2 tsp of Chipotle Chili powder in the glaze instead of cayenne and the horseradish mustard, too. I made eight little loaves, cooked four and froze four for another day. I made the whole recipe of the glaze for the four loaves and used it all on the four. Myself - I would recommend doubling the glaze recipe for the whole recipe but then I like the sauce piled on! I added my picture and a bit more in the IMI thread below. 10/18/14

    i had to sub out crushed tomatoes for the sauce. These made 7 meatloaves for us. The crust I got on the bottom was the best part! Served with broccoli and mashed potatoes :)!! Here is the IMI link Kenis Meatloaf

    I put on a pair of plastic food service gloves to keep my hands and the raw meat clean, then mash 2 1/2 lbs.93% lean hamburger, 1 cup fine breadcrumbs, 1 medium finely chopped onion,and 2 eggs, then ADD: 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce AND 1/2 cup A-1 sauce.
    Pack firmly into a 8"x3" bread loaf pan, to form a well-formed loaf with no empty spots, then INVERT on to the rack of a grill pan (the kind with a rack over a pan). FILL the pan with tap-hot water. BAKE at 375 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.

    This makes a tasty moist meatloaf and has more zest by using A-1 sauce instead of ketchup. Baking meatloaf over a pan of water is required to make a moist meatloaf at high altitude (I live in Boulder at 5,200 feet above sea level), so I'm not sure this technique would make a difference at sea level. This also doesn't make those loaves bakes in bread pans, swimming in grease--yuck!

    Whether I am making meatloaf or meatballs, I prefer to soak a couple of slice of bread in milk to breadcrumbs. It's a good use for my home-made bread as it starts to get stale. For a "sweeter", moister, and lower cholesterol result, I substitute bison (ground bison from for the beef and use ground veal in three parts bison to one part veal. I also saute the onions in Irish butter or butter from the local farmer's market if I can get there on Saturdays.

    Yum - comfort food indeed!! I ALWAYS put cheese chunks in my meatloaf too. Try using oatmeal instead of the bread crumbs :)

    Wow, I can't believe I never thought of putting cheese in my meatloaf! Otherwise it's pretty similar to mine. I use a loaf pan, though. And I often use half tomato sauce/half steak sauce. @Pat: I like a turkey meatloaf if I put a spoonful of beef BetterThanBouillon into it.

    Have been making turkey meatloaf and don't like as much as beef so I will certainly try this. Nice post.

    Sounds yummy! When my kids were little & I was a working, single mom, meatloaf was a super time saver for me. I'd make a big one for the 3 of us day 1. Day 2 the leftovers were chopped up and made into spaghetti sauce. Day 3 the leftover spaghetti sauce was transformed into chili, which the girls liked with spaghetti noodles in it. Not a 3-day gourmet feast, but with little ones and no time to spare you do what works.

    Dang, Keni, I just went looking for a meatloaf recipe last night. I settled on something pretty close to yours--but without the cheese.
