Meatloaf Recipe

Da Goddess @ 04:45

For those who might not have seen this in the comments section, here’s my no-fail meatloaf recipe (play with it and make it yummily yours!):

1 lb ground beef (no less than 15% fat…you need that fat for flavoring but most of it bakes out)

1 lb mild Italian sausage (if you have slightly more sausage than beef, that’s perfectly fine)

2 eggs (large)

2 slices bread (I use wheat, with crusts)

1/2 cup milk (I use 1% or non-fat but any is fine)

1/4 c finely chopped green pepper

1/4 c finely chopped onion

1/2 tsp ground pepper

1/2 tsp garlic salt (or a bit more if you prefer)

1 good squeeze of ketchup (approx 1 tbsp)

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 small plastic baggies (for your hands because they’ll get really goopy and cold otherwise. And while I don’t mind the goopy part, I hate the frozen hand part)

Mix everything well. It helps to soak the bread in the milk before adding it to the mixture because the milk softens the crust and the makes the bread wonderfully squishy.

Once all ingredients are mixed thoroughly, glop the whole thing into a loaf pan and bake at 350 for about an hour. Before I put the pan in the oven, I sprinkle the top with more pepper and garlic salt. If I can get everything seasoned well enough during the making process, I don’t have to worry about seasoning once it’s on the plate.

Let me know if you try the recipe and how you liked it!


  1. Yay! Thanks again for this! Forgot I had chicken thawed for tonight, but tomorrow night, it’s ON! :D

  2. Pretty close to what I use in mine, though I use a little more ketchup and like to glaze the top of the meatloaf with it late in the baking cycle. I also use seasoned bread crumbs instead of bread, though I may try it in the future. Like I said before, the one thing I did add once that put that little extra zing in mine was the honey mustard, but due to my wife’s mustard allergies I’m the only one that can eat it that way.

  4. Forgot to come back with a report! Made it Thursday night to high praise from the man! [and myself] It’s now my ‘go-to’ meatloaf recipe, in Evernote as “Joanie’s Kick-Ass Meatloaf”.

    Even though it’s made in the same loaf pan as the others, it’s much more filling than they are and you can have more meals from one loaf. Laws of physics aside, of course. Must be denser or something.

    Thanks, Joanie! :D
