Lil' Cheddar Meatloaves

This recipe is a comfort food reminder of my late childhood...something my dad and brother loved to make for dinner. Yum!


1 egg

¾ cup milk

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

½ cup quick-cooking oats

½ cup chopped onions

1 teaspoon salt

1 lb lean ground beef

23 cup ketchup

½ cup packed brown sugar

1 ½ teaspoons prepared mustard


  1. In a bowl, beat the egg and milk.
  2. Stir in cheese, oats, onion, salt and rubbed sage.
  3. Add beef and mix well.
  4. (It will seem runny at first but will thicken up as you mix.) Shape into 8 equal sized loaves (oval/egg shaped) and place in a greased 9X13X2" baking dish.
  5. Sauce: Combine ketchup, brown sugar and mustard.
  6. Spoon over each loaf so they are all covered in the sauce.
  7. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees.

***Soooo good! I do not like meatloaf, but I LOVE these! Easy, tasty, and hubs loved them as well! Great with mashed potatoes and corn!***
