Mini Philly Cheesesteak Meatloaves Recipe

Yields: 4 servings
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20-25 minutes

Ingredients:

For the meatloaves:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (or ground turkey for a lighter option)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs (or gluten-free alternative)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 ounces provolone cheese, cut into small cubes

Optional toppings:

  • Sliced mushrooms
  • Hoagie rolls or slider buns
  • Cheese sauce or melted provolone

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven: Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
  • Sauté vegetables: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and green bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  • Make the meatloaf mixture: In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, sautéed vegetables, egg, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix gently until just combined (overmixing can make tough meatloaves). Fold in the provolone cubes.
  • Form the meatloaves: Divide the meatloaf mixture into four equal portions. Shape each portion into a mini loaf and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake: Bake the mini meatloaves in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit (74 degrees Celsius).
  • Optional: Add toppings: If you’d like, during the last few minutes of baking, add sliced mushrooms and/or extra cheese on top of the meatloaves.
  • Serve: Serve the mini Philly cheesesteak meatloaves hot on hoagie rolls or slider buns. You can top them with a simple cheese sauce or melted provolone for extra cheesiness.

Tips:

  • Don’t overmix: Mix the meatloaf ingredients just until combined to ensure tender meatloaves.
  • Customize it: Feel free to add your favorite Philly cheesesteak toppings or make a simple cheese sauce for drizzling over the top.
  • Ground meat choice: Use a lean ground beef (85/15 or 90/10) for the best flavor or substitute ground turkey or ground chicken for a lighter version.
