Meatloaf is one of those classic dishes that a lot of households enjoy on a regular basis. While we could have done a traditional loaf, Kim and I decided to change things up a bit and create mini meatloaves.

Not only are they filling and delicious, but they’re also adorable. Furthermore, a full meatloaf has been perfectly portioned into four-ounce servings.

The same amount of beef you would get from a restaurant burger. Instead of using ground chuck for our mini meatloaves, we chose ground sirloin.

I felt with all the extra ingredients a meatloaf requires; we wouldn’t lose a lot of flavors.

On the bright side, you do cut out some of the unhealthy fat that you’d usually find in a meal like this.

I’m also of the opinion using sirloin gives the mini meatloaf a heartier texture. Something akin to a steak, which is really nice with all those seasonings.

As you can see from the photos, we paired our mini meatloaves with oven roasted potatoes.

Which, happens to be one of our favorite side dishes.

The ketchup is optional; however, I grew up with meatloaf being slathered in that zesty tomato condiment.

But, I can understand why you might choose to leave it off for yourself.

  1. the ingredient, ” Meatloaf seasoning” is comprised of what imgediebts?, (or is it something purchased already prepared,?)

    1. Good morning Judy, thank you for your question. The meatloaf seasoning referenced the recipe is a purchased prepared product. However, if you don’t have a packet on hand, you can make your own. For 1lb. of ground beef I use: 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/4 tsp of iodized or sea salt, 1/4 tsp seasoned salt, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp paprika, and 1 tsp dried oregano. I mix the spices in small bowl to create the meatloaf seasoning. I also taste test the spice by tasting a small pinch of them. Just to be sure the mixture isn’t too bland or salty. I hope this information helps, have a lovely day 🙂
