Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add butter into pan and saute the onion and garlic until translucent. Set aside.

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the ground beef, breadcrumbs, ketchup, Parmesan cheese, mustard, seasonings, cheese and egg. Combine well. I like to use my hands to combine the mixture to be sure it is combined. I have also used my mixer before but be careful not to over-mix.

  • Shape into 6 (4 x 2-inch) loaves on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray.

  • In a small bowl, mix together the ketchup, brown sugar and Worcestershire and spread evenly over each mini meatloaf.

  • Bake for 25 minutes or until done.
