yummy! the only thing I did different was I added ketchup and I used ritz crackers instead of the breadcrumbs. I also make mine in muffin pans to portion it out for lunches. Super easy.

I made this with lean ground beef. I doubled the recipe ( lots of leftovers for lunches) Also, I put the entire meat mixture in a large pan, rather than the mini loaves. I followed the directions, but omitted the dill & salt. I substituted the shredded cheese with 3 Mozzarella cheese strings hidden in the raw beef. I did this by making 3 long holes in the beef and layed the cheese strings inside and covered it back over with the meat. If I were making them in the mini loaves, I would break off the pieces of the cheese string and push them into the center of each individual loaf. I used the mustard glaze, but used regular mustard rather than the Dijon. Yummy!!

This was pretty good, the whole family liked it. I will make it again, for sure! I used ground chuck, it didn't turn out dry. I added ritz crackers like cherrita75 did instead of bread crumbs as it was easier at the time. Also, I added some "garlic plus" and used the topping from the "Mini Meatloaves" recipe on this site instead of the one in this recipe. My husband does not like mustard, he can handle 1/2 tsp mixed in, but not when it's a main ingredient. Because I didn't use the topping from this recipe I put in all the cheese into the meat mixture.

The serving size for this recipie is too big: 1.5 lbs of ground beef is enough for six servings (a serving of ground beef is 4-ounces, uncooked or 2.5 ounces cooked). If you make 6 portions, they will be about the size of baseballs before you flatten them. The texture is good, and I like the left-overs. There is a lot of cheese in this receipie - I didn't include the topping cheese because I wasn't home to supervise the cooking process. My husband seems to have been able to follow the cooking instructions well enough to get them out of the oven cooked-but-not-burnt. His comment: "too many onions", but he is fussy and doesn't like meatloaf, anyway!
