Easy Dinner for a Busy Weeknight Italian Mini Meat Loaves

8 09 2011

These mini meat loaves are super easy to pull together even on a busy night. What my family loves about them is that they are full of flavor and are small in size. I love that they are mini because that means each meatloaf has more of that crispy crust on it. The other thing about these is that you can omit or add so many different things into these and change up the flavor.


Italian Mini Meat Loaves

~ 1 1/3 pounds ground beef

~ 1 large egg, beaten

~ 2/3 cup Italian bread crumbs or Panko

~ 1/4 cup grated Parmigiano

~ 1 small yellow onion, finely chopped

~ 4 cloves garlic, chopped

Preheat oven to 425o F.

Place meat in a bowl. Add egg, bread crumbs, Parmigiano, onions, garlic, tomato paste, salt and pepper. Mix meat and breading and form 4 individual oval meat loaves, 1-inch thick Coat loaves with extra-virgin olive oil and arrange on a baking sheet. Roast 18 to 20 minutes.
