Hubby's Favorite Meatloaf
My hubby loves this recipe. I grew up in a no-red-meat house due to allergies so I had never cooked much beef until I married my sweetheart. He has always enjoyed meatloaf so I had to experiment a bit before I came up with a recipe that he loves. Here goes!
What you will need:
1-1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
(use ground chicken or turkey for a healthier option)
1/3 C. ketchup
1/4-1/3 C. bread crumbs
4-6 slices cheese, crumbled - I typically use cheddar
1 tsp. salt
1-1 1/2 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. onion powder OR 1/4-1/2 onion, diced
1 Tbsp. dried parsley
-Preheat oven to 350 F & spray baking dish with non-stick spray.
1. Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl until well combined.
2. Place mixture in baking dish and form into a loaf.
3. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour. Remove and drain grease.
4. Pour *sauce all over meatloaf and bake an additional 30 minutes. Let sit 5-10 minutes before serving.
*see sauce recipe below
Mine was a bit dry when I took this photo, I added a bit more ketchup.
1 C. ketchup
1 tsp. mustard
Dash (or two) of nutmeg
3 heaping spoonfuls brown sugar
