Perfect size and ever so moist. That's exactly what these mini meatloaves were. All of us just loved these. I doubled the recipe; I am so glad I did. I will freeze the other five we did not eat and freeze for later. I sure hope they don't lose any of the delicious flavor.
Mini BBQ Cheddar Meatloaves
adapted from: http://iowagirleats.com/2012/11/12/mini-bbq-cheddar-meatloaves/
1 sweet onion, sliced thin (cut into quarters and slice thin)
1 T butter
1 lb ground beef
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 egg, beaten
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup + 2 T BBQ sauce, divided
1/4 cup oats, pulsed in the food processar
2 oz cheddar cheese, cut into small cubes (I used pepper jack too)
Melt butter in a saucepan. Put onions in pan, slowly cook over LOW-MED heat until slightly golden in color. Place cooked onions in bowl; cool. After onions have cooled some, add beef, bacon, egg, Worcestershire sauce, 2 T BBQ sauce, and oats. Squish together with fingers. Fold in cheese chunks. Divide into 4 loaves. Place on a foil lined cookie sheet (grease the foil). Bake 425 for 20minutes. About half way through baking place about 1T remaining BBQ sauce on each meatloaf. Enjoy with potatoes and broccoli.
