Mini Italian Meat Loaves

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min.


6 servings

This was one of the first recipes I tried as a new wife many years ago. These single-serving loaves have been a super hit ever since. I like to serve them with pasta or mashed potatoes.


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 3/4 cup Italian tomato sauce
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese, optional
  • Hot cooked pasta, optional


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into six loaves.
  2. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes. Spoon tomato sauce over loaves.
  3. Bake 15 minutes longer or until meat is no longer pink and a thermometer reads 160°. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve with pasta if desired.
