got this recipe from a friend of mine. One of my favorites.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These were really cute and my family enjoyed having their own mini meatloaf. The recipe has a really good contrast of savory meatloaf and sweet glaze. And of course, the cheese added to these little loaves is a nice touch.

Test Kitchen Tips
Note that the glaze is quite sweet, so if you don't like things really sweet you may want to either cut back on the brown sugar in the glaze or leave the glaze off altogether. Wonderful either way.
