Touchdown Mini Meatloaves

Touchdown Mini-Meatloaves

With fall comes football season and the requisite game day rituals. Whatever your favorite traditions may be, if you’re like most fans, the ultimate football experience is about sharing good food with good company — whether tailgating in the stadium parking lot or cheering from the comfort of home. Try this lighter, leaner version of meatloaf in individual servings and score points with the home team!


Non-stick cooking spray
2 lbs. lean ground beef
2 cans no-salt-added tomato sauce
½ cup egg substitute
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
½ cup ketchup
1 stick part-skim mozzarella string cheese


Preheat oven to 375°F. Line baking pan with aluminum foil; spray with cooking spray.
Mix beef, tomato sauce, egg substitute, oats and soup mix in large bowl. Shape into 8 oval meat loaves, about 5×3 inches; place in pan. Spread ketchup over tops of meat loaves. Bake 25 minutes or until cooked through (160°F).
Cut cheese stick into strips. Cut strips into 8 long pieces and 32 short. Place 1 long piece and 4 short pieces on each meat loaf to resemble “laces” on a football.
