Cook mini meat loaves in single-serving portions for super juicy meat loaf in half the usual cooking time.
1/2 cup ketchup
1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 pound ground sirloin
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 large egg, lightly beaten
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°.
Combine ketchup and mustard, stirring well with a whisk. Reserve 2 1/2 tablespoons ketchup mixture. Combine remaining ketchup mixture, beef, and next 6 ingredients (beef through egg) in a large bowl, stirring to combine.
Divide beef mixture into 4 equal portions. Shape each portion into a 4 x 2 1/2-inch loaf; place loaves on a jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray.
Spread about 2 teaspoons reserved ketchup mixture evenly over each loaf. Bake at 400° for 25 minutes or until done.
I Love it!! It was so easy to make. I change the Dijon mustard for Spicy mustard and make it my own with a little bit of on top spices of adobo seasoning, coriander and pinch of garlic. My Boyfriend loved it! Thanks again for making it easy for this first timer.
I love this recipe, I make it often. I prefer it with plain breadcrumbs versus seasoned, and I like to sautee the onions a little before adding them, but they still taste amazing with the onions raw. Also spicy brown mustard tastes very good substituted for the dijon. I like the portion control and as another reviewer wrote, I also usually double the recipe and freeze the 2nd half. Just as easy to make a double batch as a single batch.
This is a great recipe. Simple and delicious. Since I'm not a fan of oregano, I left it out and added garlic. Also, I used a traditional meatloaf mixture of 1/3# ground beef, 1/3# ground pork and 1/3# ground veal, which can be purchased at the supermarket altogether in a 1# package.
We had this for dinner last night, and just made sandwiches with the leftovers today for lunch. I froze two of the loaves for another day.
The cooking time was "spot on" too. 25 minutes at 400 degrees.
Thank you for posting this recipe !
I've tried many recipes, but once I found this one I never looked any further - this one is the keeper! I love the flavor and the simplicity. This is one of my family's favorite meals. The only thing I do differently is to use chuck instead of leaner meat, so of course you will have less grease and fat if you go with the sirloin. I always double the recipe because this is so good leftover as well.
