Meatloaf Balls Recipe

Last night’s dinner was meatloaf balls and it was inspired by a post I saw on Pinterest. The pinner said the individual balls made the dish super moist and savory. I haven’t come across a recipe using oatmeal before so it peaked my interest. Normally I don’t like dry meatloaf so, I’ll usually make it with saltine crackers or breadcrumbs. At least once a week I like to try new recipes, especially if it doesn’t require a lot of preparation time. Unfortunately, the link to this pic did not work so I had to improvise.


1 1b ground beef

3/4 cup uncooked oatmeal

2 tsp. chopped parsley

1/2 cup milk

1 egg

2 tbs. chopped onion

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 375°F.

  1. Mix all ingredients in medium bowl.
  2. Use a large spoon or ice cream scooper to place each ball in a cupcake pan.
  3. Brush the glaze all over the top of each meatloaf ball.

For the glaze:  mix 2 tsp each of sweet and spicy chili sauce and bbq sauce

Bake, uncovered, 25-40 minutes. Drain then spoon the remaining sauce mixture over meat loaf balls

Bake for an additional 5 mins. Top with cheese, optional.


This new recipe turned out delicious -next time we will make twice as much!
