About the fastest way to bake a 2-pound meat loaf is to divide it into 4 mini loaves. The mini loaves will bake in less than 30 minutes instead of 1 1/2 hours or more for one large loaf.
Look for mini loaf pans at kitchen specialty stores. Some are available with designs on the bottom that will give these loaves a pretty appearance when you serve them.
If necessary, fine dry bread crumbs can be used in place of the quick-cooking oats.
