Make and grill mouthwatering mini-loaves for six in under an hour.
lb extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef
cup fresh bread crumbs
teaspoon pizza seasoning
to 2 cloves garlic, minced
cup pizza sauce
cup finely chopped onion (1 small)
cup chopped pitted ripe olives
slices (1 oz each) mozzarella cheese, cut into strips
Heat gas or charcoal grill. In large bowl, mix ground beef, bread crumbs, milk, pizza seasoning, salt and garlic. Shape mixture into 12 (4-inch) sausage-shaped rolls. Flatten each to 1/4-inch thickness to form patties.
In medium bowl, mix 1/4 cup of the pizza sauce, the onion and olives. Spoon about 1 tablespoon mixture evenly onto 6 patties, spreading to within 1/2 inch of edges. Top with remaining patties; pinch edges to seal.
Place meat loaves on grill; cover grill. Cook with medium heat 10 to 14 minutes, turning several times, until thermometer inserted in meat loaves reads 160°F (avoid inserting in filling). Brush meat loaves with remaining 1/4 cup pizza sauce and top each with cheese strips; cook 1 minute longer or until cheese is melted.
To keep the filling from oozing out during grilling, firmly pinch together the edges of each patty.
