Cheesy Meatloaf

March 29, 2017

My kids will eat this if I don’t refer to it as meatloaf. Something about the word “meatloaf” makes these cheesy bites unappealing, so I call them mini-cheeseburgers.
1/2 c. crushed saltines
2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 large egg
1 garlic clove, minced and crushed
1 small yellow onion, diced
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 c. ketchup
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
6 oz. Swiss cheese
1/4 c. ketchup
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, mix together saltines, ground beef, egg, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and ketchup. Don’t overmix. Split meat mixture in half, pressing the first half into the bottom of the loaf pan.
3. Layer cheese slices over the first half. Top with second half of meat mixture making sure to press down enough to combine the two layers. Top with ketchup. Bake for 60 minutes or until meat is done.


Apron Strings Notes: I usually skip the garlic clove in this one and substitute 1/2 tsp. garlic salt. I often use two of my smaller loaf pans to speed the cooking process and make an adult version with spicy ketchup and some diced jalapenos added to the meat mixture.
