Lemon BBQ Mini Meatloaf
adapted from Lynnette McMaster (my sister-in-law)
These little packets of flavor are so good!! The lemony flavor along with the sweet sauce make them hard not to inhale! They are just plain yummy!
1 ½ pound ground beef¼ cup lemon juice
1 egg, slightly beaten
¼ cup onion cut small
1-2 teaspoons salt
4 slices of day old bread cut small (I usually use 1/2 -1 cup of seasoned breadcrumbs)
½ cup Ketchup
1 teaspoon dry mustard
¼ teaspoon ground cloves (I very seldom have this on hand so it is optional)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon all spice
6 lemon slices (I never put these on because I always forget to buy lemons!)
Combine first 6 ingredients and mix well – you will probably have to knead it with your hands. Mix well and shape in to 6 individual loaves and place in a greased 13 x 9 pan. Bake 15 minutes in a 350 degree over. In a small bowl combine remaining ingredients except lemon slices. Cover loaves with sauce and top each with a lemon slice. Bake 30 minutes longer, basting occasionally with sauce from pan. (Honestly, I never baste them and they are fine!) Serve sauce over loaves.
