Old School Meatloaf Recipe
The prep work for this meatloaf recipe is super quick and easy.
Place it in the oven for one hour and relax. It’s always nice to have a recipe you don’t have to stand over while it’s cooking, right?
Whip us some fresh mash potatoes and green beans or salad…dinner is done.
- 1 1/2 to 2 pounds fresh ground beef
- 1 small onion, diced
- 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
- 2 eggs, beaten
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- Dash of Worcestershire sauce
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place all of the meatloaf ingredients into a bowl, and using your hands, combine all of the ingredients. DO NOT mix too much it will make the meatloaf tough.
Then, in a separate bowl, mix together all of the ingredients for the glaze.
Remove the meat mixture from the bowl and form into a loaf on a pan or in a baking dish. Spread about 1/3 of the glaze over the loaf.
Place the meatloaf in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
Add about another 1/3 of the glaze after the 45 minutes, and then cook for an additional 15 minutes.
Once the meatloaf is done (internal temp of the meat should be 155 degrees and/or no longer pink), remove from the oven and you can either top with the additional glaze or save it for serving on the side.
