How to Make It

Step 1

Line a broiler pan with aluminum foil and place it in oven. Preheat oven to 425°F. Whisk together ketchup, brown sugar and mustard in a small bowl and set aside.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, tomato sauce, egg, basil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Blend with your hands until well-combined. Divide into 4 equal portions and shape each into a mini loaf, about 4 inches long and 3 inches wide.

Step 3

Brush each meat loaf with some ketchup mixture. Remove pan from oven and mist with nonstick cooking spray. Carefully transfer meat loaves to hot broiler pan. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into center of a loaf registers 160°F, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand on broiler pan for 2 to 3 minutes. Use a wide spatula to transfer each meat loaf to a plate. Serve immediately.

These little meat loaves are well seasoned, easy to make, and moist. We did use leaner beef than recommended because that was what was on sale. We will definitely make them again.

You could have a much healthier version of this by using lean ground beef, not chuck which is around 20% fat. That means 20% of your food dollar is waste. The fallacy of cheaper hamburger is that there is more waste. Spend a little more per pound, but use only 1 pound of lean hamburger for fewer calories & much less fat.

Yummy & moist! I had to substitute bbq sauce for ketchup and stoneground mustard for dijon mustard and it was excellent. 1/2 the time it takes for a normal one pan of meatloaf!

I tried this because my son doesn't like anything out of the ordinary but does like beef so I thought I could sneak it in. Wrong. It didn't have much flavor and was just nothing special.
