Li'l Cheddar Meat Loaves

This is one of Tony and the kids' favorites! A lot of people don't like meatloaf, but this is a good one, and they are perfectly sized.  Just serve with mashed potatoes and gravy and corn!  Perfect meal! (at least my family think so!)

Li'l Cheddar Meatloaves
Recipe from Taste of Home
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
1 pound lean ground beef
2/3 cups ketchup
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard

In a bowl, beat the egg and milk. Stir in cheese, oats, onion and salt. Add beef and mix well. Shape into eight loaves; place in a greased 9X13 baking dish. Combine ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard; spoon over loaves. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 45 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. (45 minutes has always been plenty for me!)
Tony (hubby) and Caleb (son #1) kindof turn theirs into a shepherd's pie. They like to put it on top of their mashed potates and gravy (white sauce) and then put a bunch of corn on top of that! To each their own I guess!:)

I've been wanting a good meatloaf recipe for years. This better be the one! I'll try it soon. Right now Brandon has been so kind as to share his flu bug with me. I'm not up to cooking at the moment. (This blog is a good idea)

This has nothing to do with this recipe, but I'm still new at this blog stuff. I can't figure out how to send a comment on the Family blog and even how to find it. I have to go to your old e-mail I've saved to get into it because I don't know any other way. Any help?
