French onion mini meatloafs

As I’ve mentioned before, virtually all meatloaf recipes to me are now mini meatloaf recipes, because I have hopped on that Pinterest bandwagon.

However, thank you very much to The Perfect Meatloaf Pan (that I almost never use anymore) for giving me this recipe in your nifty little booklet. I’ve adapted it just a teensy bit.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 packet Lipton’s onion soup and dip mix
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 3/4 (10 oz) can condensed French onion soup
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • about 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese (can use Gruyere)
  • about 2 tbsp shaved Parmesan cheese (can use grated)
  • about 1/4 cup French’s French fried onions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients except the cheeses and French friend onions.

Mix well, and transfer to either a normal meatloaf pan, or into muffin tins.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Kind of move the meatloafs around a bit with a spoon so they’re not sticking to the side. Then, add the cheeses and French friend onions.

Bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
