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

We LOVE them!! I found this recipe in a magazine about 15 years ago and have been cooking it for my family ever since. I always double the sauce, and serving them with mashed potatoes is a MUST!

When I made this recipe for a family gathering I overheard "These are very, very, very good meatloaves!". Everyone raved about them. The addition of milk, oats, and cheese really extends the meat, so I ended up with lots of leftovers.

I never cared for meatloaf but I love these! They are very moist. We usually double all the ingredients except for the sauce and it is perfect!
