30 Minute Mini Meat Loaves

From Bettycrocker

My picture did not come out good but this dish is a success.  Check out the link on bettycrocker for a good pic.


1/2 cup ketchup

2 tablespoons packed brown sugar

1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef

1/2 lb ground pork

1/2 cup Original Bisquick® mix

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 small onion, finely chopped (1/4 cup)

1 egg

I only have one pound of ground beef available.  My loaves are thin but I think I still got the recipe right.  Everybody loves it.  It is easy, does not take long to make and don't need much ingredients.


1.Heat oven to 450°F. In small bowl, stir ketchup and brown sugar until mixed; reserve 1/4 cup for topping. In large bowl, stir remaining ingredients and remaining ketchup mixture until well mixed.

2.Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. Place meat mixture in pan; pat into 12x4-inch rectangle. Cut lengthwise down center and then crosswise into sixths to form 12 loaves. Separate loaves, using spatula, so no edges are touching. Brush loaves with reserved 1/4 cup ketchup mixture.

3.Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until loaves are no longer pink in center and meat thermometer inserted in center of loaves reads 160°F.


While the mixture of ground beef and pork gives these little loaves a unique flavor, you can also use 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef instead of the mixture.
Serve these loaves alongside cooked baby-cut carrots and mashed potatoes.  Today I served this dish with corn and rice.  Apple or cherry crisp is a sweet way to end the meal.
