“What the heck is Meatloaf?!” That question has plagued the majority of my life. Because I never found a satisfying answer I never tried Meatloaf on the numerous occasions that it was offered to me. I guess it is the idea of a huge loaf of meat…with cornflakes on it. It doesn’t sound appealing. Recently I came across a Food Network recipe that featured Mini Meatloaves cooked in a skillet. Okay, a mini loaf of meat doesn’t seem as bad. So I went to the store and got what I needed and the results were great, absolutely delicious. Now, do I like Meatloaf? Only if it is a mini one!
Delicious Rating: Easy preparation went into this easy recipe. If you don’t mind the feel of raw meat in your hands, it will be no problem. I only used ground beef for this recipe. Some may like to use ground pork, veal, turkey, or mix them all up together for a combination of flavors. I was really surprised at how good it was. Flavorful and juicy, all the while satisfying any meat craving you may have. One change I would make is to saute the onions beforehand so they are fully cooked & soften before added to the meat. I made some Buttered Parsley Potatoes and Cornbread to go along with the Mini Meatloaves and it created a great warm meal.

If you don’t want to use beef, try a chicken and turkey combo or mix and match with pork.
Next time I think I will dice the onions a little thinner and maybe cook them for a couple of minutes before adding them to the mixture. Although they did cook enough I don’t like to really ‘feel’ onions in my mouth (yes that sounds dumb). But it is up to you and what you prefer!
I cheated with the cornbread and used a box mix, super easy!
The sauce is soooo good, make a little extra for those too much meat bits.
