1 tsp olive oil
1 small onion finely chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
2 minced garlic cloves
1 cup ketchup divided
1 ½ pounds lean ground beef
1 cup finely crushed saltine crackers
2 tbsp yellow mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
¼ tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 350 and spray muffin tin with cooking spray.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion, oregano and garlic and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Let cool.
Combine onion mixture, ½ cup ketchup, and remaining ingredients in a large bowl until well combined (hands work best for this).
Spoon the meat loaf mixture evenly into the 12 muffin cups. Top each with 2 tsp of ketchup. Bake for 25 minutes or until meat temperature reaches 160 degrees. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Quick tip: Instead of ketchup use barbecue sauce for barbecue meatloaf. Top each meatloaf with barbecue sauce and shredded cheddar.
