Lower Fat Li'l Cheesy Mini Meatloafs (Oamc)

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by ThatCaptJim

Adapted from DDW's recipe to be lower in fat! Still as tasty, but a little less heavy on the ole waistline. Freezes well. Make a bunch, and freeze them for quick and easy nukeable meals!

I feel beginner cooks might encounter problems with the recipe as written. I used 1 pound of meat & feel it made 4 average size servings rather than 8. The mixture held together well & patted easily into oval minis. The recipe however mentions topping with a sauce, but none is included here. (I used a mixture of catsup, brown sugar, and mustard and baked it on the loaves the last 10 minutes in the oven to get a nice glaze.) Thank you for sharing the recipe & I look forward to more from your kitchen!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine egg substitute and milk together in a bowl.
  2. Stir in cheese, oats, chopped onions, salt, and sage.
  3. Crumble in beef and mix well. It will be a bit gooey at first, but will firm up as you work with it.
  4. Shape into 8 oval shaped loaves and put on a non-stick pan (a little non-stick spray helps to keep them from sticking!).
  5. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees.
  6. For OAMC:.
  7. To Freeze: Place the meat loaves in the casserole dish.
  8. Wrap with foil and freeze.
  9. To Reheat: Defrost overnight.
  10. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in the center.
  11. Cooked meat loaves (already topped with sauce) also freeze very well and then can be defrosted and heated in the microwave for a quick meal.
