1 large Sweet Onion
1 tablespoon Butter
1 1/2 pounds Ground Turkey/Beef
1 Egg, whisked
1/4 cup + 4 tablespoons NJS Kahlua Coffee Madness BBQ Sauce (divided) More if you like it saucy
1/4 cup Bread Crumbs, I use gluten free
4 ounces Cheddar Cheese, cut into 1/4 inch cubes
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees
1. Over medium heat, melt the butter in a large skillet. Cut the onion into thin slices and add the onions to the pan. Sprinkle the onions with salt and pepper and stir. Cook the onions, stirring every couple of minutes, until the onions are caramelized. Turn the heat down if you notice the onions are burning. Once caramelized, set the onions aside to slightly cool.
2. In a large bowl combine the ground beef, egg, 4 tablespoons BBQ sauce, bread crumbs, cheese cubes, caramelized onions, and a dash of salt and pepper. Mix together just until combined. No over mixing… unless you want a tough loaf!
3. Divide the mixture into 4 equal-sized portions and form them into mini-meatloaves.**** Place each one on the foil lined baking sheet. Spread 1-2 tablespoons of BBQ sauce over the top of each loaf and then bake for 20 minutes, or until no longer pink the center.
