Sweet and Sour Individual Meatloafs

I made these for dinner tonight - very tasty! I served it with baked macaroni and cheese and the only thing missing was a cold beer.

1 lb ground beef
1 chorizo sausage, diced (about 6 oz)
1 carrot, peeled and diced
1 small onion, diced
1 T garlic
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
2 T Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp Sriracha
1 egg
1/2 c bread crumbs

Sweet and Sour Sauce
1/2 c ketchup
1/4 c brown sugar
2 T vinegar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Saute onion and carrot in a bit of oil over medium heat for about 7 minutes, until softened. In a large mixing bowl, combine all meatloaf ingredients and mix well. Use your hands, it's fun.

In a small bowl, mix the ketchup, brown sugar and vinegar until it's combined.

Divide meatloaf mixture into 12 fairly even balls. I start by forming it into a rectangle and separating it in half, then into half again, then into thirds. Coat a 12 muffin tray with cooking spray and put 1 T of sauce in the bottom of each section. Then add a meatloaf ball and press down until flattened on top.

Pop the tray in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

Remove and let cool on a tray for 5 minutes, then serve.

Mmmmmmmmmm! This also freezes well so whatever you don't eat, just put into a freezer bag and freeze for a rainy day.
