This mini meatloaf recipe with a shiny balsamic glaze is sure to please. I love the idea of mini meatloaves because they are pre-portioned, making them easier to serve. The meatloaf mixture is simple and light, with the use of panko breadcrumbs and a few staple ingredients.
Adjust rack to upper position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy clean up (if using foil, coat with cooking spray).
In a small bowl, combine ketchup and balsamic vinegar.
In a large bowl, combine beef, onion, panko, garlic, parsley, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Mix with hands to combine.
Divide beef mixture into four pieces and form into 1-inch tall free-standing loaves. and place on prepared baking sheet.
Brush ketchup mixture onto loaves. Bake in oven until no longer pink in the center, about 25 minutes.
Sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley.
