Mini Meatloaf

This is a very popular recipe and I try to make a huge batch so they'll last longer than a day or two, but people snag one or two for breakfast the next day, some disappear in lunch bags, and there's only one or two left for an after school snack the next day.

Good thing they're easy to make.


4Tbs brown sugar, packed
1 c ketchup
2 eggs
1 c Bisquick
1 med onion, finely chopped (1/2 c)
2-3 lb ground meat (can use all beef or a blend of beef and pork, turkey, veal, or lamb)
Worchestershire sauce, salt and pepper

Mix brown sugar with ketchup. Reserve 1/2 c for topping.

Use a hand mixer to combine the remaining ingredients. It aerates the meat so it doesn't pack too tight and it's much faster than by hand. Plus your hands don't get so darn cold.

Turn the meat out into a large, greased (or sprayed) sheet pan.

Form the meat into a rectangle.

Use a spatula to separate the rectangle into equal mini loaves.
I can get about 8 mini loaves per pound of meat.

Space out the mini loaves equally so the air can circulate while they cook.

Spread remaining ketchup mixture over tops of the mini loaves. Bake at 450 for 20 minutes or until no longer pink in center.

Serve with mashed potatoes and green beans...
Or with noodles and a salad...
Or with a baked potato and carrots...

Leftovers are fantastic sliced into sandwiches or just nuked and served as leftovers.
Of course like I said earlier, these are so good, there are never enough leftovers.
