Yes, these are a weird 'mock steak' but amazing little meatloaves - the hubby and I loved every single bite. With the broiler on high (and ours is a strip down the middle of the oven), the little patties near the flame and the sauce got scorched 5 inches from the heat (per the recipe) and were still raw-ish in the middle (we microwaved the rest of the way). Will move the rack down a notch next time and test with a meat thermometer. I didn't have a broiler pan or casserole, but used a lined jelly roll pan with a rack in it which worked great - so much fat rendered down into it. Also, since our burner was down the middle, we needed to flank the loaves on the rack on both sides of the burner instead of right under it to minimize the scorching. Doubled the recipe and got 10 little loaves, and followed the recipe (used 93/7 beef and glad I did) exactly except for the onions. Opted to serve the onions sauteed on the side which worked great. Only had 1 cup of breadcrumbs left which was fine but will try the full amount next time. After adding in the egg, the mix almost got too mushy/liquidy, but the patties stuck together fine and were moist. Really easy, really delicious - and a perfect 'cabinet meal' for us. Thank you to the reviewers that say this freezes great - I can't wait to try that for a quick freezer meal. Only needed 3/4 of the sauce recipe.
