They cook in half the time of a regular loaf. They are nice for lunch the next day too.

Preheat oven to 350F/175C.

3/4 cup/180 mL finely chopped onion

2/3 cup/150 mL bread crumbs

1/3 cup/75 mL lemon juice

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/2 tsp/2 mL salt

1/4 tsp/1 mL pepper

2 lb/1 kg lean ground beef

1/2 cup/125 mL Cheddar cheese, grated

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients except beef and cheese.
Add the beef. Mix well.
Pack the mixture into 12 muffin cups.
Mound the cheese over each mini-loaf.
Bake for about 45 minutes, or until meatloaves are set and meat is no longer pink inside.

Applesauce Meatloaf

1 beaten egg
1 1/2 c soft bread crumbs (about 2 slices)
1/2 c applesauce
1/4 c chopped celery (I omit)
2 T minced onion
1 t Dijon mustard
1/2 t salt
dash pepper

Mix all, add 1 lb ground beef, mix thoroughly. Shape into round loaf in 8x8 pan. Make depression in top.
Combine and pour into depression:
1/2 c applesauce
1 T brown sugar
1 1/2 t vinegar
1/2 t dijon mustard

Bake 1 hour at 350. YUM!
Tonight I will make this one for the 2nd time. We love it!! My DD who usually hates all meat dishes asked for seconds. . .said it was her favorite thing ever!! I also used apple cider vinegar when I made it

When I make meatloaf I like to mix up the meats. Our fav. is goat and pork. Rabbit and turkey is great, too!

I grate veggies in mine..always carrots and onions, but most anything found in the fridge works well. I usually use 97% lean for everything, but for meatloaf, I buy 85/15 gb and to rid myself of the fat that would normally be in the bottom of the pan, I line my loaf pan bottom with slices of bread. It absorbs all that fat that leaks out without it sitting in grease. It makes the biggest difference

I wish I could take credit and give credit for this recipe.  It's moist, easy, yummy and even my picky eater loves it.

 

P.S.  It goes really well with the mashed potato recipe.

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
 
2. Mix the onion soup mix, ground beef, egg and milk together.
 
3. Form the combination into a well packed loaf shape in a 13 X 9 X 2 loaf pan.
 
4. Combine the rest of the ingredients and spoon onto the top of the meatloaf.
 
5. Bake uncovered, for about an hour. When done, take the meatloaf out of the pan and place on a serving plate. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.

My recipes are already posted.But,I wanted to add a tip that I love.

 

I learned,via Alton Brown,that using a loaf pan "steams" the meat loaf.

 

So,I experimented.Using the loaf pan to shape the meat,I put it on a larger broiling pan and flattened it a bit.

 

Alton is right!! the meat loaf came out very flavorful and with a crispiness around the edges with plenty of moisture.

 

 

Also,check your fat content.The dryness can come from using too low fat of a meat.I wouldn't recommend using all 15% fat ratio for instance.

 

Also,using tomato paste(contadina) instead of sauce gives lots of flavor.

 

Let us know what  your experiments lead to!

 

 

Lindsay

pioneerwoman's recipe has you use a broiler pan, too, and I found the result last night to be just as you said- crispy on the outside, but moist in the middle.

 

I will say this, though-- the meatloaf wrapped in bacon might not be the best choice for those who eat meat but rarely.  :)  I had a hard time sleeping last night, and plenty of indigestion.  And I don't think that was just 1st trimester blues, though I'm sure that's part of it.

novaxnocirc.gifprolly....if meat is only eaten seldom....the quantity would be the main factor here....also the time in hours before you lay down.......I eat meat, only on occasion, and NEVER in the evening.....in fact...I have learned that, for me,(I'm OLD), my main meal is about 2 in the afternoon......while experimenting with this, I found I wasn't sleeping well, so I added greek yogurt in the evening, and this extra protein worked well for me....our bodies change with age, climate, stress, etc.....my nutrition is always a changing novel......sending peace
