Monday Menu

Just a half day of work today so I'm off now to putter, cook and enjoy the amazing fall weather. The leaves now are a beautiful gold and red and with the sun shining they are brilliant. I'm trying to will Fall to last another month or so. I hate to see this beauty fade away.

Anyway, trying a new recipe for tonight. We love meatloaf and I found a Mini Meatloves recipe at All Recipes.

1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1 teaspoon salt
1 pound ground beef
2/3 cup ketchup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine egg, milk, cheese, oats and salt. Add the ground beef, mix well and form into eight miniature meatloaves. Place these in a lightly greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
In a separate bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar and mustard. Sitr thoroughly and spread over each meatloaf.
Bake, uncovered for 45 minutes.

Can't wait to see how they are. I've never used oats in meatloaf before. This recipe was rated an average of 4 1/2 stars (out of 5) by almost 1,000 people. Should be good. We'll see shortly.


  1. I love oats in meatloaf. I always used regular oatmeal not quick cooking. I used cooked barley once - it was really delicious, but did not hold together at all until it was cold. But I like cold meatloaf best anyway. :-)

  2. Lovely fall daughter makes mini meatloaf all the time and thenn she freezes some for later.
