Recipe: Meatloaf

Meatloaf

Meatloaf

Meatloaf has a love/hate relationship with many people. There are plenty of recipes out there for meatloaf and while some are good, some are not. I’ve tried many recipes for meatloaf over the years and this is the one I’ve fallen in love with. So share the meatloaf love and bake some up tonight! This recipe makes 8 servings. Great served up with some homemade mashed potatoes!

Also, you can cut this recipe in half if you want. You’ll end up with a half height meatloaf but remember that the topping is for the surface area of the meatloaf, so that has to remain the same unless you also cut down the size of the pan you bake it in.

Ingredients:

2 Eggs
2/3 c Milk
1/2 tsp Pepper
4 Slices Bread, cubedCube Bread
3/4 c Grated Carrot
2 Tbs Dried Minced Onion
2 Tbs Worcestershire Sauce
1 c Grated Cheddar Cheese
2 lb. Ground Beef
1/2 c Ketchup
2 Tbs Mustard
2 Tbs Demerara Sugar

Instructions:

Pre-heat your oven to 350°. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and pepper. Add in your bread cubes and mix until they’ve soaked up some liquid. Toss in your carrots, onion, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well and then add in your cheese and ground beef. Mix only until the ingredients are dispersed somewhat evenly. Place your meatloaf mixture into a 9×5 pan and pack it well. Bake for 30 minutes. While that’s baking, make your topping by mixing together the ketchup, mustard and sugar. Once it’s done baking for the first 30 minutes, pull it out of the oven and spread the topping on top. Stick it back in the oven for another 30-45 minutes or until your thermometer reaches 160°. No one wants an undercooked meatloaf. We also don’t want an overcooked brick. Once it’s all nice and done, bring it out of the oven and let it sit for 5-10 minutes  before you slice into it.
