Individual Meat Loafs



I have a thing for individual potion sizes, mainly because my eyes are always hungrier than my stomach but I also think it is sorta cute. In college I had a roommate who had a baking pan that made mini loafs, roughly 3"x2"x1". I stopped making muffins and instead little loafs! Granted the loafs were bigger than the muffins but gosh they were so much more adorable (is it strange to call bread loafs adorable?) Since those days I have been trying to find my own pan and finally found a similar one at Joann's for $10-$20, can't quite remember the cost. Mainly I use it for breads but this time I used it for meat loaf!

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup finely crushed saltines
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • Dash pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Directions: In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add milk, saltines, onion, salt, sage and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into a loafs small enough to fit pan. If you do not have a mini loaf pan, shape into desired portion sizes and place in a shallow baking dish. 







Combine the remaining ingredients; spread over meat loaf. Bake at 350' for 35 minutes or until no longer pink.

  1. Your recipe sounds interesting but my family is picky about spices...my recipe is one package of onion soup, some worchestershire sauce, eggs (2) and crushed crackers (usually amixture of ritz and cheezits) which make it very cheesy/buttery tasting. I will add whatever crackers we have at the time but mostly ritz. Then of course it is covered with ketchup and baked. We like ours a little crispy on the ends. I have heard of people putting a hard boiled egg (peeled of course in the middle of the meatloaf. Haven't tried that one but it sounds good.

    1. A hard boiled egg in the middle sounds like a Japanese thing to me. They seem to slip those things in the middle of a lot of things!
