Li'l Cheddar Meat Loaves: Beef Is What's For Dinner

Li'l Cheddar Meat Loaves

Hi everybody :)

These little meat loaves were part of my dinner plan last night along with the Garlic-Ranch Buttermilk Kaiser Rolls. This recipe is from my cookbook collection and it can easily be doubled or tripled for entertaining or parties.

Look delicious doesn't it? Want to make it for dinner tonight? What are you waiting for, the clock ticking and dinner not going to make itself; so let's get it started...

Li'l Cheddar Meat Loaves adapted 2000 Taste Of Home Annual Recipes

1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
1 pound lean ground beef
2/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard


In a bowl, beat the egg and milk.

Stir in cheese, oats, onion and salt.

Add beef and mix well.

Shape into eight loaves; place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. (I did seven loaves)

Combine ketchup, brown sugar and mustard; spoon over loaves. (I spooned the sauce on during the last 15 minutes of cooking time after I drained off the grease.)

Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160°. Yield: 8 servings.

What I Did and/or Think: 
The only thing I did was make mine loaves a little bit bigger, I made seven, and I put the sauce on 15 minutes before taking them out the oven after draining off the fat.

The Taste: I LOVE the taste of these loaves, and the sauce was perfect! This is a REPEAT! Adult and kids would love these mini loaves. So the next time your in a fix and your  family wants to know know what's for dinner tonight, you can tell them, "beef is what's for dinner".

P.S. Make extra sauce to serve with these loaves, you'll be glad you did.

Here's what I had for dinner: Li'l Cheddar Meat Loaves, Kaiser Rolls, Wheat Angel Hair Pasta with Pesto Sauce, Streamed Broccoli with Garlic Butter. What's your dinner plans?

ENJOY! Come again...
