Cheesy Meat Loaf Minis

This is another one where D and I agree our parents must have just made dry gross meat loaf. And we don't.

This was rather easy to make...we made it together (I chopped the onions and parsley, D put everything in a bowl and cooked the onions). We used yellow cheddar because we aren't all fancy and stuff.

The result was very flavorful. And moist. We both enjoyed it. We had with Garlic Fries.

We add white cheddar cheese to this comfort-food favorite making it seem more indulgent than it actually is at less than 300 calories per serving.
