Mini Meat Loaves

My grandma sent me this recipe for mini meat loaves in the mail a few years ago. I've tweaked it a little bit over time and, since I made it tonight, I thought I'd share it here. It's quick and easy, not to mention pretty yummy. My mom-in-law still makes the best meat loaf in town, but this is a pretty close second in my book.

Mini Meat Loaves
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup crushed crackers
4 tbs. ketchup
2 tbs. dried minced onion
4 tbs. shredded cheese (optional)
A few splashes of Worcestershire sauce
1 lb. ground turkey (or beef)

Topping: 6 tbs. ketchup, 2 tbs. brown sugar

Directions: Preheat oven at 400 degrees. Combine egg, cracker crumbs, ketchup and onion. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Coat 10 muffin cups with cooking spray and fill 3/4 full. Mix topping ingredients well (I put it in the microwave for about 15 seconds to break down the brown sugar) and spread on top of loaves. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Pull out of oven, sprinkle tops with cheese, if desired and bake an additional 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.
