Classic Meatloaf Recipe

Classic Meatloaf

Meatloaf is one of my favorite dishes from my childhood! I have certainly made the standard version my mom made with a packet of onion soup mix and topped with ketchup, but I learned there is a lot more that goes into a good meatloaf. First of all, most classic meatloaf is made up of more than just one meat. So, for this version, I combine hamburger and pork.

Before I mix up the loaf, I combine the eggs, half and half, and a little bit of yellow mustard. Wisk that all together and pour over meat and spice mixture.

Most Classic Meatloaf
1 Lb. Ground Hamburger
1 Lb. Ground Pork
1 Medium Onion Grated
2 Tablespoons Minced Garlic
1 Tablespoon Dried Parsley
2 Eggs
1 1/4 Cups Breadcrumbs
1/4 Cup Half and Half
1/2 Cup Ketchup
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire
1 Tablespoon Onion Powder
Paprika and Pepper
2 Tablespoons Salt

Bake For One Hour at 375 degrees allowing at least 15 – 20 minutes to cool and set.

One thing that I learned watching my favorite host Sunny Anderson from The Kitchen, is that cannot over mix your meatloaf. She suggests taking your non-dominate hand, extending out your fingers like a pitch fork and gently mix together your ingredients. Once it is in the pan, cover with some additional ketchup and pepper. My last attempt felt like it was missing salt, so you may want to adjust that to your own taste. Also, make sure you give it time to rest before serving. Enjoy!
