Mini Meatloaves

Meat loaves:
2 lbs. lean ground round beef
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 packets (.98 oz each) instant oatmeal, regular flavor
2 large eggs
3/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup low-fat milk
2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. salt

1/3 cup ketchup
3 Tbs. light-brown sugar

Heat oven to 375*F. In large bowl, mix together meat, onion, instant oatmeal, eggs, ketchup, milk, Worcestershire sauce, and salt until well-combined. Divide meat mixture into 8 servings and shape into individual loaves. Place meat loaves in a 9" X 13" baking pan.

Prepare glaze: In a small bowl, blend together ketchup and brown sugar. Brush tops and sides of meat loaves; bake 35 - 40 minutes, or until a meat thermometer registers 160*F when insterted into center of loaves. Let cool 10 minutes.

Serve 4 meat loaves with mashed potatoes, if desired. Cool remaining meat loaves for 25 minutes. Wrap individually in plastic wrap or waxed paper and freeze.

To reheat: Place meat loaves in a pan, and thaw in refrigerator overnight. Unwrap and bake 15 minutes in 350*F oven, or microwave loaves just until heated through.

Yield: 8 meat loaves
