Little Meat Loaves

I wrote down this recipe in the '70s and have made it many times. Kids love it because they are individual size meat loaves. You can make them any size, but all should be the same so they will cook uniformly. I made 6 out of the recipe; they took a little longer to cook. This is my first photo blog post, so here goes:

1-1/2 lb. ground beef

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 large egg
1 cup soft bread crumbs
8 oz. can of tomato sauce ( or half of a 15 oz. can)
1/4 of a large onion, finely chopped
dash of Worcestershire Sauce

Combine all ingredients as for meat loaf, then shape into 8 oval loaves and place in a shallow baking dish.

Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 15 to 25 minutes. Spoon off excess grease.


8 oz. can of tomato sauce, or other half of 15 oz. can
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons parsely flakes
1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce

Combine and pour over cooked meat loaves.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes longer.

Serve with mashed potatoes and fresh brussel sprouts, for instance.

Pure comfort food, what a nice meal it helps that I am also a huge fan of brussel sprouts.
