Mitt Romney's Meatloaf Cakes

One of Stew's clients at work recommended Mitt Romney's Meatloaf Cakes...this meatloaf is so delicious and if you don't like meatloaf (or have bad childhood memories) you need to give this one a try!  We make this recipe in mini loaf pans and IF there are leftovers, we like to put slices of meatloaf on a really good bread warmed up.  Enjoy!

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
4 slices bread, crumbled into small pieces, or 3/4 cup dried bread crumbs
1 large egg
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons seasoned salt

For The Sauce:
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice.

For the meatloaf cakes: Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, crumbled bread or bread crumbs, egg, onion, lemon juice and seasoned salt. Mix lightly but thoroughly and shape into six small loaves. Space evenly on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes; meanwhile, prepare the sauce.

For the sauce: In a small bowl, mix together the ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, cloves and allspice. When the meatloaf cakes have baked for 15 minutes, brush each loaf with sauce and return to the oven. Continue to bake until the meatloaf cakes are 165 degrees in the center when tested with an instant-read thermometer, about 20 more minutes. If desired, serve with scalloped potatoes and steamed vegetables. Pass additional sauce separately.
