The first time I had meatloaf, it was at a friend’s potluck. Last semester. I know, how did I live 23-ish years without eating meatloaf? Well honestly, the idea of meatloaves just never sounded that appetizing to me. But the one I had at my friend’s potluck was delicious, moist, and just divine. When I found out what ingredients were used to make it, I realized, I really need to find a healthier version of this.

And along came the All-Recipes version. Healthier, without sacrificing quality!


  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound ground beef **
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • Olive oil spray (something to lightly coat muffin pan)

* Used skim — it’s going to be baked so you won’t be able to tell the diff between skim v whole milk anyway!
** Used 90/10 or leaner — I’ve tried 92/8 and 96/4 and I didn’t notice any difference.


  1. Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
  2. Combine egg, milk, cheese, cooking oats, and salt in a large bowl. Add in ground beef and mix well.
  3. Add beef mixture into pre-oiled muffin pan.
  4. Combine ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard in a separate bowl. Stir thoroughly and brush on top of every meatloaf.
  5. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes.

Makes 8 servings. 255 calories per serving.


I try to stretch out this recipe to 12 servings but only because my pan has 12 muffin molds so I fig, why not?

Random note: the recipe makes a ton of sauce and I only ever use a fraction of it. Despite this, definitely still make it because otherwise, your meatloaves will taste a weebits bland!
