"Delicious individual meatloaves! The flavors are great and the topping is to die for. The lemon on top makes a nice presentation."

This is a different and light meatloaf, even meatloaf haters eat and like it. I found this recipe and tried it, to my delight everyone likes it including me, who does not like meatloaf.


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 slices day-old bread, torn into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons seasoning salt
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/4 dash ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 6 slices lemon


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish or a dish of similar size.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, lemon juice, water, egg, bread, onion and seasoning salt until well blended. Shape into 6 individual loaves - I like to make large balls. Place them in the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven while you prepare the topping.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the ketchup, brown sugar, mustard powder, allspice and cloves. Spoon the sauce over the loaves, then top each one with a slice of lemon. Return to the oven, and bake for an additional 30 minutes, or until cooked through.
