Mini Skillet Meatloaves

I’m not a huge fan of meatloaf, but my husband loves it. It’s always on the top of his request list when we visit his parents and his mom is doing the cooking. I found this recipe for mini skillet meatloaves in a Food Network cookbook that I picked up, and since even my pickiest children are fans of all things mini, decided to give it a try.

I should have made seconds. The meat is incredibly flavorful and nicely browned on all sides, and the sauce is fantastic. My kids practically licked their plates clean, and begged me to make it again as soon as possible. I think this will be a new staple at our house. But I’m definitely doubling the recipe so that there are leftovers for sandwiches the next day (and that’s saying a lot if you know how much I generally can’t stand meatloaf).  I used a combination of ground turkey and ground pork, but you can substitute whatever type of ground meat you normally use for meatloaf.

Mini Skillet Meatloaves

  • 1/3 c breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 c milk
  • 1/3 c chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 TBS Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 small onion, finely minced
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 1/2lbs meatloaf mix (ground turkey, beef, and/or pork)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 TBS vegetable oil
  • 1/2 C ketchup
  • 1 to 2 TBS light brown sugar
  • 1 TBS apple cider vinegar

Mix the breadcrumbs, milk, parsley, egg, Worcestershire sauce, onion, chili powder, and garlic in a large bowl. Add the meat, season with salt and pepper and mix with your hands until combined. Shape into six 3-to-4-inch oval loaves.

Heat the vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add the loaves and brown about 3 minutes per side.

Whisk the ketchup, sugar and vinegar in a bowl and brush a few tablespoonfuls over the meat. Add 1/2 cup water to the skillet, cover and simmer over low heat until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Transfer the loaves to a plate. Add the remaining ketchup mixture to the skillet and cook over high heat, stirring, until thick, 3 to 5 minutes.
