Juicy slices of this tender meat loaf are wonderful served with a homemade sweet-and-sour sauce. It's an easy way to fix supper, especially when the weather is too hot to turn on the oven. Plus, cleanup is a breeze because you just toss out the foil pans.

IT'S FUN to make miniature meat loaves instead of one big loaf...and they cook up quickly in a skillet rather than in the oven.
The unique combination of flavors gives the ground beef zip. This recipe is one of my old standbys for a speedy supper.

When I make meat loaf, I usually just mix together whatever I have on hand. One time I added leftover kidney beans I had in the fridge, and my family loved the meat loaf's soft texture. Now it's our favorite.

Craving meat loaf but not wanting to turn on a hot oven forced Jennifer Sheller to come up with this yummy recipe. “It’s a huge time-saver and the scrumptious sauce drizzled over the top keeps the patties wonderfully moist,“ she reports from Lebanon, Pennsylvania.
