Lil Cheddar Meat Loaves Recipe

Lil Cheddar Meat Loaves Recipe

I got this recipe from my Aunt when I was a teen and have made these lip-smacking miniature loaves many times. My husband and three children count this main dish among their favorites. The recipe is also great for company, since it's easily doubled or tripled. —Kathy Bowron, Cocolalla, Idaho
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, whisk egg and milk. Stir in the cheese, oats, onion and salt. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into eight loaves; place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar and mustard; spoon over loaves.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until no pink remains and a meat thermometer reads 160°. Yield: 8 servings.

"We have been making cheddar loaves twice a month since the recipe first appeared in 1999. I like to add dry minced onion to the topping and a little Worcestershire, sometimes I make the loaves around a cube of sharp cheddar instead of grated because some of the grated cheese cooks out."

"No question about it, this is a great meatloaf recipe! Made according to directions. The mini idea made these cute and easy serving. In our opinion you could make half the sauce and still be delicious! As a volunteer field editor with Taste of Home I love preparing classic dishes with a new twist."

"I used bread crumbs instead of oats b/c thats what I had in the pantry. I took aliciachapa's advice and baked it at 375 for another 25 min. I also added some bacon strips on top. It was good, but not amazing as other recipes Ive tried. Ill make it again when I need something fast"

"To MaikoEmi, after reading your review I thought not doing it. When I checked at 25 minutes, there were lots of liquid, I had to set the oven at 375 for another 25 minutes or more until it was drier. I think you did not waited until the liquid evaporated. Actually it is pretty good and not soft at all."

"The meat stayed very soft, the oats were completely the WRONG starch to add, and the sauce was sickeningly sweet. It couldn't even be salvaged by being made into a sandwich. I can't believe so many people liked this. Gross, just plain gross!"

"This is the absolute BEST meatloaf. Normally my husband refuses to eat leftovers, but he will gladly eat these two (or even three!) nights in a row! These come out perfectly moist every time. Reading the reviews, it sound like some find the sauce to be too sweet, but we love it - it's delicious and I use every last drop. I haven't found another meatloaf recipe that comes close to this one!"

"I love meatloaf but wanted to try a different recipe my husband and I love cheese so I decided to give this one a try. It is delicious but do agree there is a bit much brown sugar in it but that can be fixed. Thank you for the idea and love that they are mini so you can pack them in your lunch box for work and have a little hunk of meat to munch on. Will definitely be making this for years to come."
