Mini BBQ Cheesey Meatloaves

Always tickled when I see another recipe from Holly at 
Life as a Lofthouse that I can fall in love with..I dare say we are sisters of the taste buds.

Meatloaf is one of my most favorite dishes...especially with cheese!  And the fact these are little loaves that don't take as long as one large meatloaf to bake, made it a quick evening dinner for the 2 of us...and 2 meals! 

I LOVED the ease of this dish...a few simple ingredients...and Holly used 'freeform' loaves on a piece of foil...which made for awesome! cleanup.  Brilliance at its finest! 

The only thing I did differently was to add some dry minced onions and used  a little more cheese. 


MINI BBQ CHEESEY MEATLOAVES 

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 egg, beaten
1 Tb. worchestershire
1/2 Tb. dry minced onion 
1/2 c. favorite BBQ sauce, divided
1/4 c. panko crumbs
salt & pepper to taste
3 - 4 ozs. cojack (or cheddar) cheese, cubed into 1/2" 

Preheat oven to 400. Line cookie sheet with (non-stick) foil. 

In large bowl, combine ground beef, egg, worchestershire, 1/4 c. BBQ sauce, bread crumbs, salt & pepper; mix until blended.  Add cheese cubes; mix just until combined. 

Divide mixture into 4 equal pieces and shape into rectangles. Place on prepared baking sheet. Spread remaining BBQ sauce over each loaf.  Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until center is cooked. 

Serve & enjoy.  Yield: 4 small loaves
