Meat Loaf Cakes

From Ann Romney's cookbook. It is one of Mitt's favorite meals and she always makes it for his birthday dinner! My notes: I made this March 2014. Chuck loved it! I thought it was good too but not sure it was better than my regular meat loaf recipe. The sauce was quite sweet, which Chuck liked. I could really taste the lemon in this recipe, especially when I ate a bite without the sauce. I thought the meatloaf was a little tough. I remember reading another meatloaf recipe that stressed not to overwork the mixture when combining the ingredients, so next time I would be more careful with that. I used more onion then the recipe called for and oatmeal (that I had pulsed to have a texture more like bread crumbs), and those alterations worked out fine. I formed the mini meat loaves and put them all together in a baking dish, rather than baking in separate mini loaf pans. Overall assessment was positive and I would make them again.
