Meatloaf for One

I found this meatloaf recipe in a book about cooking for one or two or something. It is fast with easy prep and clean up. I prefer recipes that only dirty one or two items so I'm not sure if I altered this recipe somewhere along the way because you only need a Texas style muffin tin, one large bowl, a 1/2 Cup and a 1/2 tsp. Oh, and a knife to dice the onion.

My Favorite Meatloaf
1lb Lean Ground Beef
1 Large Egg - Beaten
1/2 C. Italian Bread Crumbs
1/2 C. Heinz Ketchup
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Dried Oregano
Pinch of Garlic Powder - Optional
1/2 Diced Onion

Mix with your hands.

For Texas Style Muffin Tin (Serves 6)
Bake at 350 Degrees for 25-30 Minutes or no pink. Add more time for larger pans.
Cool in pan and then dig out the servings and freeze in individual baggies.

Serving Suggestion: I love this with Italian Style Stewed Tomatoes that have been thickened with Corn Starch and french style green beans.
I did some calculations on eTools and if you use the 95% Lean 5% Fat Ground Beef this comes out to 5 Points Plus Points per Serving.

**Keep your eye on the dog while cooling.**


  1. Your last sentence made me laugh out loud! I call Jack Mr. Opportunity even as he is licking the butter from his lips.

  2. Thank you. Thank you... Thank you!!!
    Now, just too bad I am the only one in this house who likes meatloaf... Maybe I could pull it off with a large side of mashed potatoes and brown gray. That usually does the trick. I do happen to have the annual 50# bag sitting on the ramp waiting to be used. Daddy is eye-balling those potatoes. I am sure as soon as I open the bag some will disappear! Should I just make the meatloaf and hand him some with a few potatoes? Maybe I will do that.
