Individual Skillet Meat Loaves w/Mushroom Sauce

Here it is, a meat loaf recipe you can do on the stove instead of in the oven! These little meat loaves are perfect individual servings. And, if you only need a couple, you can freeze the uncooked loaves. To use frozen meat loaf, just thaw and cook.

Meat loaves:

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
3/4 cup italian fine bread crumbs
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 small white onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
salt to taste
2 tbsp. olive oil

Combine first seven ingredients in a large bowl. Divide into 6 portions and shape each portion into a small loaf. In large, deep skillet heat olive oil. Add meat loaves and brown one side. Carefully turn the loaves and brown the other side. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for approx. 20 minutes, until cooked through.

Mushroom Sauce:

8 oz. sliced portobello mushrooms
1 tbsp. olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
1/4 cup sherry
2 tbsp. butter

After removing meat loaves from skillet, add sliced mushrooms, olive oil, salt & pepper, and saute until browned. Deglaze with sherry and then add butter. Simmer until sauce is thickened. Serve over meat loaves.
