The addition of cheese in these Mini Cheddar Meatloaves is amazing and the simple sauce on top is absolutely incredible too!

Mini Cheddar Meatloaves - Butter With a Side of Bread

A friend gave me this recipe quite a while ago and I admit that I kept putting it off because meatloaf has never been one of my favorites. I finally decided to try it and now my whole perspective on meatloaf has changed – this is absolutely amazing! I would have never thought of adding cheese to the meat, but it adds a wonderful flavor and it keeps the meatloaf from being too dry. You only need three basic ingredients to make the incredible sauce that goes on top – you can not make this meatloaf without the sauce!

I used Cache Valley Mild Cheddar shredded cheese but any variety of Cache Valley cheese would probably be delicious. I think next time I will try a Cheddar/Monterey Jack blend or maybe Mozzarella! I love Cache Valley cheese because it always tastes so good and works perfectly in all of my recipes.
