mini meat loaf burgersThese cheeseburger mini-meatloaves are worth standing in line for!  (And order a side of fries to go with it.)

If your kids like going to burger places with playgrounds, they’ll have fun with these mini meatloaves.  They’re fun to make, fun to serve, and really very good.  They’re made with ketchup and mustard and a layer of cheese.


1/4 cup ketchup
2 large eggs
1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs or other type of bread crumbs
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 pound lean ground beef
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
2 – 3 teaspoons dill pickle relish
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup ketchup
tomato slices (optional)
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. In a bowl, combine the first 1/4 cup ketchup, eggs, bread crumbs, onion and ground beef.  Mix ingredients well.
  2. Using the mini meatloaf pan with drain holes, fill six cups 1/2 full with mixture.
  3. To make the “cheeseburger filling”, spoon the remaining 1/4 cup ketchup, the mustard, dill pickle relish and the first 1/4 cup shredded cheese evenly between the six meatloaf patties.
  4. Divide the remaining meat mixture over the “cheeseburger filling”, mounding it above the pan.  Place the meat filled pan into the catch pan to catch the droppings during cooking.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Top with remaining shredded cheese and return it to the oven for five minutes or until it reaches 160 degrees.  Let the meatloaves stand five minutes in the pan before removing them.  Serve with optional tomato slices.
