    My friend took my 3 kids for a sleepover last week. (She’s an angel 🙂 ) It was so nice! It’s pretty rare when Kale and I are kid-free, and when we are we usually go out to eat, but since we were both exhausted we chose to eat at home. I made us these super easy mini BBQ Cheddar Meatloaves! Miniature sized meatloaves loaded with barbecue sauce and bits of cheddar cheese through out… Seriously, amazing! 

   I served ours with a side of golden skillet potatoes (recipe coming soon) and a side of broccoli and we were both in heaven. Let’s just say there was minimal talking during dinner because we were devouring every bite. It was so nice to enjoy a delicious dinner in our peaceful and quiet house. 🙂

  1. Right up my taste bud alley…meatloaf is a fav..especially with cheese! And I always love mini versions too. We are definitely sisters of taste buds. :-)I’ll be making these soon.

  2. These look AMAZING and I can’t wait to make them!! I will probably have to double the recipes for my family, would I cook them for 40mins or do you suggest another amount of time?

    Btw, just came across your website about a week ago and LOVE it!!!

    1. Jennifer, this recipe easily doubles! I would bake them for 30 minutes, and check if their done after that. Hope you love them! And glad you found my blog 🙂

  3. FYI: This article and your pink lemonade pie have something funky going on with their photos. The photo that shows up in my wordpress reader is just a huge, pixel-y “pin it” button, not the (gorgeous, delicious) photos of your food that show up at the top of your articles on your blog.

  4. Made these last night. I might have put too much cheese cubes in the mixture, but they still came out tasting amazing! I used A1 instead of Worcester sauce.They didn’t look as pretty as yours did, I”m thinking it’s because of the excess amount of I cheese I put in it, but they were a hit with the family. Will definitely make these again.

  5. I tend to mix mince beef with sausage mince for meat loaf. so this idea is different for me; will try it though. I also blend vegies into mine (a hangover from when kids were home!)

  6. The meatloaf looks great, but will add a little onion. We love meatloaf with onion. Also, green peppers may go in next time. Thanks!

  7. I make something very similar to these…You can double or triple the recipe and freeze them on a baking sheet. Once frozen, throw them in a zip-loc bag and use them as you need.

  8. I recently made these and they were/are delicious!! I actually tripled the recipe. Even my husband who isn’t a meatloaf fan liked them! I am actually going to make them again tonight. I served them with mashed potatoes and a veggie the 1st time.
