Lil' Cheddar Meat Loaves

Like most freezer meals this one can be doubled, tripled, etc. if you have the space. I like this recipe because you can make the loaves into individual servings based on who you are cooking for.

1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup oats, quick
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 tsp. salt
1 lb. ground beef, lean

On Hand:
2/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1-1/2 cup mustard, prepared

Assembly Directions:
In a bowl, beat the egg and milk. Stir in cheese, oats, onion and salt. Add beef and mix well. Shape into eight loaves. Flash freeze until solid. Divide into airtight plastic freezer containers; date and label with serving directions; then freeze.

Serving Directions:
Thaw. Combine ketchup, brown sugar and mustard; spoon over loaves. Place in a prepared baking dish. Bake at 350º for 45 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160º.

One recipe makes 8 loaves.
