Mini Honey-Mustard Meatloaves with Roasted Potatoes

Our cute twist on meat and potatoes will have the little ones clamoring for more. Panko breadcrumbs, which blend right in and lighten the texture of these meatloaves, can be found in the Asian-foods section of the supermarket.

Mini Honey-Mustard Meatloaves with Roasted Potatoes

Source: Everyday Food, 2008


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for baking sheet
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon honey mustard
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 pound ground beef chuck
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 1 cup shredded white cheddar (about 4 ounces)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 pound white new potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1 head Boston lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Brush a rimmed baking sheet with oil. In a small bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons mustard and ketchup.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine beef, egg, panko, 1/2 cup cheddar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and teaspoon pepper. Form into four 2-by-4-inch loaves; place on baking sheet. Brush with mustard mixture; top with remaining 1/2 cup cheddar. On another rimmed baking sheet, toss potatoes with 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper.

  3. Transfer meatloaves to upper rack of oven, and place potatoes on lower rack. Bake until loaves are cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes, rotating sheets after 10 minutes. Remove loaves from oven; continue to roast potatoes until tender, about 5 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together remaining tablespoon oil, remaining teaspoon mustard, and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Add lettuce to bowl, and toss. Serve meatloaves with potatoes and salad.

    This recipe is delish! Boyfriend hates cheese, so I replaced it with some Frank's Red (hot sauce that's not really hot, just flavorful) and some garlic powder to mimic the high notes of the cheese. I served it with mashed potatoes and peas. The alteration came out way better than expected, it was a huge hit, and will be making it again!

  • teachermum 4 Nov, 2011

    This turned out great and I've made it several times. I like to serve it with peas and strawberries. I need to double the recipe since it's 13 y.o. (football player) favorite so it does not go far.

  • psofey 12 Sep, 2011

    I don't really care for meatloaf, myself; I make it because my husband loves it. But even I liked this dish! Great recipe... much tastier than the really ketchup-y versions I recall from childhood. The ground chuck is what makes it especially delicious!

  • ibcrafter 8 Dec, 2010

    Good recipe! Family loved it. I agree with Denise Viola; I find I can eat anything if I just remember to take small portions of meat

  • jemcat 29 Sep, 2010

    I'm going to make healthier version with vegan ground beef.

  • JulyGal57 16 Sep, 2010

    This recipe is super! I was surprised how easy and fast it was to make and how GREAT it tasted. Definitely make this again.

  • l perlman 28 Apr, 2010

    This is a good go to recipe. I've made this with both beef and ground turkey and its great both ways. My favorite loaf recipe!

  • l perlman 21 Feb, 2010

    We have made this several times and it is now our favorite meatloaf recipe. It is great with the salad and potatoes.

  • jlfourni 5 Nov, 2009

    If you want the nutrition info, you can buy the magazine or you can use one of the many free recipe nutrition caluclators available on the web. Would it be nice to have? Sure. But I am really tired of the helpful comments getting drowned out by the whiny demand for extra info from a free website.

  • JamieKC 5 Nov, 2009

    5 stars! Delicious, easy, and fun to prepare.

  • txstevens 11 Oct, 2009

    Loved it. I am not usually a fan of meatloaf, but I really liked this recipe.

  • MlleGena 23 Mar, 2009

    The vinegar was too strong for the salad! Otherwise, the meatloave was delicious!

  • metrygirl 20 Mar, 2009

    Recipezaar and Allrecipes have all the nutritional values listed if you're interested.

  • mpsg5 19 Mar, 2009

    Nice recipe cant find the time to make it!

    I love Mustard and I think its going to be tastfullllllllllll
    thanks for this

  • CCiraco 19 Mar, 2009

    Also, while I will not bash Martha's website, I am concerned that as a forerunner of excellent food and drink, as well as being the smart omni-media mogul she is, Martha should perhaps take this feedback from her contributors to heart and implement some simple changes. Since everyone asks for nutritional information, why not create some jobs and get people working on that addition?

  • CCiraco 19 Mar, 2009

    While being given all the ingredients is usually enought to make informed choices about healthy eating, having the nutritonal information is a great addition, especially if someone has never used certain ingredients before. Those of you who chastise the contributors who are concerned with this, are the ones who are ignorant to the ever growing rate of obesity in this country, and we should applaud those who make the effort to learn and practise healthy eating.

  • ejclaire 19 Mar, 2009

    If you are concerned about nutrition, HBP and diabetes, knowing the ingredients in the recipe should be enough for you to make an educated decision. There is no reason to accuse others of ignorance. The constant harping about nutritional values is incessant and annoying. Either figure it out yourself or don't make it.

  • sjb48 19 Mar, 2009

    To SusanBlossom, either you are very naive or don't get it!!!!! Have you ever heard of diabetes, or high blood pressure, that is why it is extremely important to list the nutrional valve, so we can get on with life and live. Please don't be so ignorant.

  • mrsmuddi 7 Mar, 2009

    These are quick easy and delicious. They reheat so well and with the individual portions make them wonderful leftovers or lunch the next day. I used a jalapeno honey mustard and added some Worcestershire and hot sauce to the meatloaves.
    Yummy! I will definitely make these again and make a larger batch to freeze.

  • mbeck13 22 Jan, 2009

    we all loved this! Fast, easy and good!

  • ChristineDesigns 9 Jan, 2009

    This was great! However, I used ground turkey in place of the ground beef chuck. I will surely make this again for my family.

  • MaileAnne 3 Oct, 2008

    This is a great and quick recipe. All my boys from ages 9 to 1, love it. I've even substituted ground turkey and it tasted great. The boys didn't even know.

  • JoanShef 23 Apr, 2008

    I found this a terrific recipe when cooking for 2 people. After preparing the 4 meatloaves you can bake 2 and freeze the other 2 for another night. Just leave off the topping of cheddar cheese until you are ready to bake.

  • pimentoloaf 21 Apr, 2008

    I make these often. We love them.

  • MightyNez 18 Apr, 2008

    My family loved this! Economical and easy to make. The size is just right, and leaves room for more vegetables.

  • hartigan 10 Apr, 2008

    We loved this! My husband made it last night with a few changes. He used 1/2 ground turkey to lower the fat a bit (can't sacrifice the cheese!), a chopped jalapeno pepper for a little heat and used spinach instead of boston lettuce for the nutritional value. Everything was fantastic! A new meal for the rotation!

  • Puddin_Pop 7 Apr, 2008

    We loved these! I subbed. torn wheat bread for panko and only had honey dijon mustard. I used sharp cheddar for the cheese. I put the ketchup and mustard into the recipe by accident and it was still very good. So tender and flavorful. The potatoes were not that great.

  • niftynoodle 23 Mar, 2008

    My husband and I really liked this. It was really yummy - I found the loaves to have a lot of flavor - mostly thanks to the topping.
    I wanted to spice the potatoes up a bit so I added some seasoned salt and garlic powder.
    Also, since I subscribe to the magazine and the nutrition is in the back, this is what the magazine lists for the nutrition of the Mini Honey-Mustard Meatloaves with Roasted Potatoes:
    per serv.: 484 cal; 23.3 g fat (8.8 g sat fat); 35.4 g protein; 34.3 g carb; 4 g fiber.

  • ajcuomo 20 Mar, 2008

    I was craving meatloaf and decided to try these. They were delicious! I even got compliments from my husband. One note: I did substitute ground sirloin for ground chuck since I couldn't find it at the grocery store. I would definitely make these again.

  • chrisbensch 12 Mar, 2008

    Quick, easy, and quite tasty--a new favorite in our household.

  • hjoy 11 Mar, 2008

    This was really easy and I have all of the recipes on hand. My husband loved it even as left overs.

  • ibcrafter 9 Mar, 2008

    If I have time, I buy round steak or roast and grind with the grinder attachment on my Kitchenaid mixer, adding a carrot or 2 and some onions. Even though I trim all the fat

  • unmistakable1 6 Mar, 2008

    Made this last night and it turned out well. It is basically a cheeseburger w/out the bun, so I'm sure this would be a great meal for kids! My husband and I enjoyed it, but there isn't a whole lot of flavor in the meatloaf itself and we felt it was lacking something. All in all, a quick and easy meal, though. I probably won't make it again, simply because I have other, more flavorful meatloaf recipes. I will make mini loaves as that greatly reduces the cooking time!

  • BetsyB 6 Mar, 2008

    To cjsgama , there is no way a singe serving is 169.35 calories ! EACH serving is 677 calories , do not divide by four , that is just the number of servings that the recipe makes. If you get in the habit of looking at the calorie content of all foods/ pkgs. you will get better at figuring out how many calories you are eating .

  • Lessley 5 Mar, 2008

    We liked the entire meal. Simple, fast, good comfort food. All important when time is limited and it is cold outside.

  • hydrangaes 5 Mar, 2008

    yes turns out great!

  • LynneinChgo 5 Mar, 2008

    Could someone please tell me if it's o.k. to substitute ground turkey for the beef?

  • craftwithroni 4 Mar, 2008

    I just tried and it's good!

  • sjb48 4 Mar, 2008

    I do not make anything that does not include the nutritional value. I am surprised that this site and even the Light

  • Hubendog 4 Mar, 2008

    I like to use whole wheat bread. About 2 slices for every lb of meat. I don't dry it out, just straight out of the bag. Makes the loaf nice and moist but not mucky at all.

  • SunflowerRae 4 Mar, 2008

    Very tasty. I made these on Sunday and my family loved them! I must add that my kids generally don't go for meatloaf but they were very disappointed that there wasn't enough for seconds. They also wanted to know when I would make it next!

  • megslamb 4 Mar, 2008


  • bertanya 4 Mar, 2008

    I also find that if I use oatmeal instead of bread crumbs it is jucier when using a leaner cut of beef.

  • Puddin_Pop 4 Mar, 2008

    I love the idea of the vegetables pureed and added to the load. Great idea.

  • bluroses 4 Mar, 2008

    I have a recipe calculating program I purchased, but the one at is actually better. I ran this recipe with low-fat cheddar (which is what i would use) and regular breadcrumbs (panko is not in the database - but if I had a can to see the label, I could add it to the database). I run most recipes through that if the cookbook doesn't provide info!

  • KALSLC 4 Mar, 2008

    Bluroses: I am adding to the request...where do you get a recipe calculator? I would love to have one of these. Thank you.

  • melisbaz 4 Mar, 2008

    There are a couple of ways to lighten up this recipe - you could try using a leaner cut of meat like ground sirloin or even ground chicken/turkey. However, since these cuts are leaner, the end product will be dry. To combat this, I suggest adding some finely chopped veggies such as onions or shallots, bell pepper of any color, zuccini or squash, etc. I just throw some in the mini food processor until they are practically pureed, this way you will not need to sautee prior to mixing in.

  • Cheryln 4 Mar, 2008

    I thought it was great that somebody had the nutritional values of that meal and shared it. It sounds like a good meal, but makes it more enjoyable if I know whether I want to invest the calories in it or not.

  • echodobes 4 Mar, 2008

    bluroses, where did you find the recipe calculator? i make most of my meals from scratch and have a hard time figuring out the calories i'm eating. just trying to watch my salt intake and loose some weight. 169.35 calories per serving ain't bad for this recipe!

  • DeniseViola 4 Mar, 2008

    Everything in moderation is good. One needs to know their limit and stick with devouring. Live Life to the Fullest

  • bluroses 4 Mar, 2008

    I just ran it through a recipe calculator based on 4 servings: Calories 677.4, Total Fat 34.4g, Cholesterol 144.1mg, Sodium 528.0mg, Potassium 1,349.9mg, Total Carbohydrate 52.8g Dietary Fiber 5.7g, Sugars 4.9g, Protein 35.2g

    SusanBlossom - there is nothing wrong with wanting to know nutritional values. This enables us to make informed choices about what to eat, which helps us lead happier lives, which leads to more enjoyment of life. No harm in providing information. Peace.

  • SusanBlossom 4 Mar, 2008

    What is it with your constant comment on nutritional values? Please start LIVING and enjoy life!

  • sjcusson 4 Mar, 2008
