What's for dinner tonight?  The age old question.  Sometimes one of the most dreaded for me.  I had another of the Cooking Light Double Issue meals the other night and it would be just perfect again tonight!  Let me begin by saying I am not a big fan of meatloaf.  I will  make it for my family  but usually not eat it.  However, this recipe for Cheesy Meat Loaf Minis is really tasty.  It has a couple of different ingredients that make it really good.  
I have actually prepared it twice.  The first time following the recipe and the second time, using what I had on hand.  That meant using ground venison in of the ground sirloin and also using three Laughing Cow Light cheese wedges rather than the 3 oz white cheddar cheese.   Both ways were successes.  If you are wondering what to start for dinner tonight, here's your answer!  Let me know if you try it!

  • 1 ounce fresh breadcrumbs (about 1/2 cup)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup chopped onion $
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/2 cup ketchup, divided $
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 ounces white cheddar cheese, diced
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground sirloin
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten $
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. 2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add breadcrumbs; cook 3 minutes or until toasted, stirring frequently.
  3. 3. While breadcrumbs cook, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Combine onion mixture, breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup ketchup, and remaining ingredients. Shape into 6 (4 x 2-inch) loaves on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; spread 2 teaspoons ketchup over each. Bake at 425° for 25 minutes or until done.
