"DELICIOUS, easy meat loaves in individual portions"
finely chopped yellow onions
( three onions)
1 -2 tablespoon
ground black pepper
2 1/2 lbs
Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a cookie sheet.
Heat the olive oil in a medium saute pan. Add the onions, thyme, salt, and pepper and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes, until the onions are translucent but not brown. Off the heat, add the Worcestershire sauce, chicken stock, and crushed tomatoes. Allow to cool slightly.
In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, onion mixture, bread crumbs, and eggs, and mix lightly with a fork. Don't mash or the meatloaf will be dense. Divide the mixture into 6 -9 portions (depending on size) and shape each portion into a small loaf on a cookie sheet. Spread about a tablespoon of ketchup on the top of each portion. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until the internal temperature is 155 to 160 degrees F and the meat loaves are cooked through. Serve hot.
