Reviews forLil Cheddar Meat Loaves
"Made as one whole meatloaf, after all meatloaf is supposed to be easy! Loved the sauce. Very good. Also, made with leftover rice next time, because I needed to use it. Worked out fine!"
"Hasn't anyone noticed the bake time is different from the Total Time comment to the Directions. It is 45 minutes. Love these."
"These little gems are so tasty! I keep a few without sauce because one of my kids prefers them that way. I used ground bison and they are simply delicious! I’m a Volunteer Field Editor and I love trying and reviewing recipes. This one does not disappoint!"
"These are wonderful. My husband agrees. They will now be our go to meat loaf recipe. Just delicious. I wouldn't change a thing."
"This was excellent! The loaves were so tender and the cheese, oats and glaze gave them incredible flavor. This may just be my new go-to meat loaf recipe. If you don't want to make individual loaves, you can probably make one large loaf and adjust the cooking time. I will definitely make these little loaves again and again!Volunteer Field Editor"
"My aunt brought these fantastic meat loaves to a family reunion about 15 years ago. I have been making them ever since and my family absolutely LOVES them!"
"love this even my picky eater husband loved it"
"I have been making this meatloaf since I first saw it in the April/May issue back in 1999! I still have the original recipe that I cut out and have now laminated! That is how amazing this recipe is! When I first met my husband 20 years ago he hated meatloaf. I tried many recipes and he literally hated them all, until I made this one. I have never made any other meatloaf since we first made this recipe. It is super easy to make and it turns out perfectly delicious every single time. The sauce is absolutely amazing! I have never changed a thing and everyone who tries it loves it. Now that we are in our 40's we are trying to watch what we eat. So I decided to substitute ground turkey for the ground beef and I kept everything else the same... PERFECT! It was even more moist than normal. beef or turkey, this recipe is absolute perfection!"
