Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

Kids will love getting their own individual-size loaves, while everyone will enjoy the sweet-tangy glaze on top. Serve with smashed baby potatoes sprinkled with chives.

  • 1/3 cup packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 4 slices bacon, coarsely chopped

  • 2/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 1-1/4 lb. ground beef (85% lean)
  • 3 large eggs

  • Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and heat the oven to 400°F. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Pulse the onion, parsley, bacon, and garlic in a food processor until finely chopped.
  • In a large bowl, combine the oats and boiling water, stirring to combine. Add the onion mixture, beef, eggs, 1-1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper and mix well by hand.
  • Shape the mixture into 4 small loaves (about 4×3 inches) on the prepared baking sheet. Brush 1/2 cup of the chili sauce over the top, and bake until cooked through (165°F), about 20 minutes.
  • Turn the broiler on high, brush the loaves with the remaining 1/4 cup chili sauce, and broil until browned in spots, about 2 minutes. Serve.

    Is the bacon cooked or uncooked?

    We really enjoyed these and the kids liked having their own little ones. It is a good, simple classic meatloaf recipe.
