30 Minute Mini Meatloaves

Oh no! It's 3:00 PM and what are you going to make for dinner? Nothing taken out of the freezer? I guess it's take out again, right? Wrong!
It happens to all of us. We get busy, and before we know it, it's nearing supper time. No need to fret, I have many meals that I can pull off quick!
Today's treat:

30 Minute Mini Meatloaves

Meat loaves

  • 1-2 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 onion minced or 2 tbsp dried onion
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp worcester sauce 
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tsp chili powder
For the meat loaves:
Thaw your ground beef in lukewarm water . Rotate the meat every 30 minutes. Preheat your oven to 350. Once the ground beef is thawed, place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well. 

Really get in there and get all the meat mixed in.  Now for the trick: put you meat into muffin tins, filling them 3/4 full. 
This cuts the baking time down giving you a quick delicious supper. Mix the remaining 3 ingredients and brush over the mini meatloaves. 

Bake for 25 minutes, and serve next to veggies and your choice of sides. Our favourite is rice and steamed carrots! 



  1. OMG!! These are soooo cute. I love meatloaf but I don't just use ground beef, I use ground pork and veal too. It makes a great tasting meatloaf!!

  2. I love the idea and they look awesome. I also like the way the plate looks, very appetizing and with healthy veggies.

  3. I love seeing the steps to create a dish. Thanks for including those.

  4. I lov e this idea,I want to make them soon.

  5. this looks so delcious its litterally making my mouth water is looks so good !!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. So cute! This is definitely getting pulled out next time I have an 'I forgot about dinner' moment mid afternoon.

  7. I like this - when I try to make a full meatloaf - it's tough to cook in the middle. This will work a lot better!

  8. I've had them many times and it is great. Sauce is different from what I remember

    1. The beauty of this recipe is the variation in the sauces are endless! This is my most recent sauce recipe!

  9. Everyone in my family loves meatloaf except for me. Making individual ones would allow me to make meatloaf for them and something else for me. Thanks!

  10. this looks so good my family would love it denise smith
