10 tablespoons Bacon Cheddar Meatloaf Blend (or one single use blend recipe)
½ cup ketchup
1 ½ pounds your choice meat (such as beef, pork, chicken, or combination)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, thoroughly combine all ingredients except the cheese.
- Divide and shape mixture into 12 patties; place 6 patties on a foil lined baking sheet and top with an equal amount of cheese on each. Top with remaining 6 patties. Press edges to seal patties.
- Bake these mini meatloaf patties 20 minutes. Serve warm.
When making meatloaf, fill up the oven! I hate the idea of paying the utility costs to heat up my oven for a single meatloaf when there is so much extra space that I can utilize. The beauty of this seasoning blend is that I can make multiple batches of the basic Italian meatloaf recipe and choose to make all meatloaves, all meatballs or a combination of the 2. (recipe for meatballs here) When I’m finished baking, I can store the extra meatloaves or meatballs in the freezer in large storage bags.

Let the kids help make dinner. They especially enjoy making the smaller versions that bake faster. Use the option for adding cheese and let them build the layers of the meatloaves together with you!
