Quick and easy to make. A family favorite. The ketchup and brown sugar give these loaves a tangy flavor.

Very good and tasty. Instead of forming them into individual loaves as suggested in the recipe, I used a muffin pan that I sprayed with PAM. The cooking time was the same and it was easier, too. Read More

I wanted to try this recipe for several reasons - it has a ketchup/brown sugar topping like the recipe that my husband prefers and it was highly rated. I would never have thought of putting OATMEAL and CHEESE in meatloaf! It was SO good. The thing that absolutely made this recipe the best was the texture - and I guess that is attributed to the oatmeal and cheese! The only thing I did differently was put a dash of garlic powder in and use my Pampered Chef Mini-Loaf pan to do four loaves. One suggestion for those who are finding it to be too "wet". Let the oatmeal/egg/milk mixture sit for a few minutes so the oatmeal can absorb some of the liquid before you combine with the meat. YUM! This is going to be my permanent meatloaf recipe! Read More

I wanted to try a new Meatloaf recipe other then my Mom's. I saw this recipe, and it was close to hers, but a little different (quick oats, sauce, no onion). So, I made it exactly as the recipe called for, BUT added one large chopped onion (meatloaf isn't meatloaf without onion). I found a NEW recipe. This meatloaf recipe is BETTER then Moms. My kids were licking their plates. I can't get the taste out of my mouth. It was fantastic. I already sent the recipe to my sister in law, to feed to her finicky kids. I think they'll even like it. I don't think anyone who tries this would be disappointed. Read More

My husband wanted meatloaf for dinner so I got online to see what I could find....THIS WAS AWESOME!! I used a muffin pan like others had suggested. I like the individual serving sizes except my husband ate 9 outta 12 meatloaf muffins!!! So much for lunch tomorrow.... I stuck pretty close to original recipe but added Ms Dash's 1/2 tsp onion medley and cut back to 1/2 tsp salt. Also was just under 1/2 cup of oats so I added some italian bread crumbs too. Put about 1/4 cup chopped onions and had to add Worcester sauce cuz I love it! This really was easy to make and has me looking forward to the next time we can eat meatloaf! Thanks Tonya!!! Read More

Very tasty. I added some chopped sauted onions for extra flavor and used fresh bread crumbs because I didn't have oats. I left the milk also. I did make 8 loavess but I used 1 1/2 pounds of meat. I don't know that 1 pound would have been enough meat for 8 loaves otherwise. I felt they were the perfect size and ate one. My brother was here for dinner and ate 4 though but he is a big guy and had just come from work. Read More

Very clever recipe that was appealing to everyone! The kids liked having their own personal meatloaf and my dh even preferred it over the one giant lump of meatloaf. It looked so much prettier to serve on a plate too! I have to admit I didn't have oats so I used regular saltine crackers and I didn't want the mustard in it so I left that out but it was a fantastic recipe. I used a measuring scoop as a mold. A keeper! Read More

This was really REALLY good!! After reading alot of the reviews this is how I changed it a bit. I did use the muffin tin sprayed with cooking spray which yielded 10 mini meatloaves after a perfect 45 minutes in the oven. I let the oats milk and cheese sit for a few minutes to soften the oats a bit. I also added 1 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp onion powder to the milk/oats/cheese mix. For the topping I used dijon mustard - that countered the sweetness just right and made the perfect topping! This recipe is top notch!! My husband - the avowed meatloaf hater - ate SIX of them (and yes he was moaning on the couch afterward). That's a winner in my book! Read More

I have tried several highly rated meatloaf recipes on this site but this is my new favorite. It produces a tender and tasty meatloaf. I made the following modifications. I tripled the recipe and substituted 1 lb of ground lamb for 1 lb of ground beef. I made one batch of mini's in a muffin tin and instead of adding the cheese into the meat I formed the ball of meatloaf around a chunk of cojack cheese. Yummy yummy! The other two loaves I mixed the cheddar cheese into and baked them regular size. Finally I did not add the mustard to the topping; I don't like mustard. So I added a bit of onion powder and cut back on the sugar a bit. Anyway awesome recipe! Read More
