Ok I have taken my mothers meatloaf amped it up a notch and made it a little cuter !
Preheat oven to 350.
1 1/2 pounds of hamburger meat. The one shown above I bought from Sams club it is a little fattier than I usually buy. It was still good. But I usually buy the leanest hamburger meat I can.
Grate some onion. As much as you like. I usually put in like 1/4 cup. I think gives it some moistness.
Cheese. We use Colby jack around here but whatever you have around will be good. I grate probably like almost 1 cup. I never measure !
Saltine Crackers. I use 3/4 of the package ground them up with rolling pin. I use a bag to ground them.
Salt and pepper to taste of course !
Put all into the bowl as shown above.
I then get my cupcake tin ready I spray it with a non stick spray. They probably wouldn’t stick but I don’t like to take the chance !
Mix it all up.
Then form into meatballs. And place into tin. I make a ball then flatten.
I never measure this ! I am sorry.
But I put probably like a cup and a half ketchup a quarter size of mustard and 2 heaping tablespoons brown sugar. Mix well.
And then add to the top of the meatloafs.
Cook for about 25 minutes. I usually temp mine to at least 170. But I am not a cooking professional so it is probably less than that and you will be ok.
And you are ready to eat !
I serve mine with mashed potatoes.
This is not the healthiest recipe but it is so good.
And meatloaf is just comfort food to me !
