Meatloaf, Smeatloaf, Double-Beatloaf

Why, hello there. I have returned! After a long absence that included laziness, lack of supplies, and sickness. All of those factors kept me from updating. But here I am again, and I hope it was worth the wait.
My sister told me to make something that I would eat, but I didn't. But she knows I rarely, if ever, listen to what she tells me. My wedding dress was one that my sister said was ugly, so I tried in just because and ended up loving it. There is a rather telling home video of me when I was tiny(age like 4 I think)that shows me out right disobeying her, and rubbing it in. But she also knows that I love her a lot. Now on with the show!
Lil' Cheddar Meatloaves
I do not like meatloaf at all. Even if they are tiny.


1 egg, 3/4 cup of milk, 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup quick cooking oats, 1/2 cup chopped onion, 1 tsp salt, 1 lb lean ground beef, 2/3 cup ketchup, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 1/2 tsp prepard mustard

In a bowl beat egg and milk.

The whisk I am using is a new one I got from Pampered Chef that is really tiny, great for eggs! I hadn't used it yet(my husband is the one that makes eggs usually) and I wanted an excuse to use it. Even if it was a bit on the smaller side for this big bowl.

Action shot!(I love action shots)

Stir in cheese, oats, onion, and salt.

Add beef and mix well.

Shape into 8 loaves; place in a greased 9x13 inch baking dish.

I just guessed on the size, and it worked out well!

In another bowl, combine ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard; mix well.

Spoon over loaves.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Pretty gross looking, huh?

Still look gross.

Its over! These will work great for my husband's lunches because they are tiny! I also don't see how it couldn't be a good big meatloaf as well. My husband loved this recipe, and definatly wants it again. He said though, that next time to cut back on the brown sugar. So I mught just do like, a half of a half. Whatever that is.


  1. Meatloaf is one of my favorite things.

  2. Didn't you use your hands to squish the mixture?
