Prego sauce makes the mini meatloaves extra moist while Pepperidge Farm stuffing adds an extra boost of flavor.  The best part is the surprise cheesy center.  We love the idea of making mini meatloaves. You can refrigerate the baked meatloaves and reheat all at once if you're eating together, or one at a time- perfect for those nights when you're fitting dinner in around after-school activities!

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 400°F.  Mix 3/4 cup sauce, beef, stuffing, eggs, onion, pepper and oregano thoroughly and shape firmly into 6 loaves, placing 1 piece cheese in the center of each loaf. Place the loaves into a 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

Step 2

Bake for 25 minutes or until the meatloaves are cooked through.  If serving immediately, top with the cheese, if desired, and serve with the remaining sauce (warmed). OR, cool the meatloaves completely. Wrap the meatloaves and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Cover and refrigerate the remaining sauce.

Step 3

Unwrap the meat loaves and place with the remaining sauce in a 12-inch skillet. Cover and heat over medium heat until the meatloaves are hot.  Sprinkle with the shredded mozzarella cheese and serve with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Recipe Tips

  • Make Ahead Freezer Meal: Omit or reserve the optional shredded cheese.  Assemble the meatloaves and place in a foil baking pan.  Top with the remaining sauce.  Wrap tightly and freeze for up to 3 months. From frozen, bake, covered, for 1 hour or until the meatloaves are cooked through. Sprinkle with the shredded cheese, if desired.
  • You can also make 1 large meatloaf instead of 6 smaller meatloaves.  Bake for 1 hour or until cooked through.

    Since my husband passed away and I'm on my own, it's ideal I can make it and have extra meals ready to go.

    I have made this a few times. There are only two of us; so that was way too mcuh to eat. We have enjoyed adding other vegetables to the meat. I have also substituted the mozzarella cheese with shredded and string cheese. We will definitely make again!

    Very good and easy. You can also hide other vegetables like peas, corn and shredded carrots in the meat loaves.
