Mix together beef, breadcrumbs, spring onions, garlic, eggs, cumin, Tabasco, coriander and some seasoning until combined. Be careful not to over-mix or the meatloaves will be tough.
Divide the mixture into 8. Use your hands to shape each one into a small oval, like a mini meatloaf. Arrange 3 cherry tomatoes on top of each, then drizzle over the chilli sauce, if using. Cook or freeze in airtight plastic containers.
To cook, heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Place the meatloaves on a lightly greased, shallow baking tray and bake for 25-30 mins until the meat is cooked through.
