Li'l Cheddar Meat Loaves

I found this recipe on a blog I recently discovered and love. Heidi from Tried and True cooking with Heidi posted the recipe for this and I just could not wait to give them a try. I am so picky when it comes to meatloaf so I was afraid I might not like these. My husband, on the other hand, loves meatloaf and was so happy I was willing to make a batch. I've been using the same recipe for meatloaf for about 6 years now so this was a change for me and one that I actually liked. I made this recipe try to the original recipe and I was very surprised at how close it tasted to my favorite one. The only thing I would do different next time, and believe me there will be a next time, is add some Worcestershire sauce to the meatloaf. Here is Heidi's post with the original recipe. This is a very quick to make meatloaf, both in assembling and baking with an added bonus of my kids devouring the meatloaf.

1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 tsp salt
1 pound ground beef
2/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1-1/2 tsp prepared mustard

In a large bowl, whisk egg and milk. Stir in the cheese, oats, onion and salt. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into eight loaves; place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar and mustard; spoon over loaves. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes.

  1. I feel like a queen. Two people posted recipes they got from my blog today (the other made the soft taco burgers). I'm so honored people read my posts and make them. I'm so glad your family enjoyed this recipe. We did.
