I cook often, and cook pretty well :) Anyways, I really like meatloaf, but I have NEVER made it!

I would like to make it this weekend possibly - so who has a good recipe?

  • I cheat and buy a seasoning packet from the store. Then I mince 1/2 onion, and 1/2 clove of garlic, throw in a dash of Worchester Sauce (sp?) 1/2 cup bread crumbs, 1/2 cup water and 1 egg. Mix all together (I find it easier to mix together prior to adding hamburger meat) when it is all mixed, mix well (by hand) with the hamburger. Kinda like kneading dough. Form into the shape of a loaf. You can top with a squirt of ketchup or A1 sauce, spread over the top of the meatloaf (just a thin layer).

    Then bake and enjoy :)

  • I love the way my moms makes it, and it is really easy, I dont measure anything though, just put it in to where it "looks" right. I start with hamburger meat, and add oatmeal to help it hold consistancy, and bbq sauce, mix really well. Then you can add whatever you like, my mom puts in green peppers, mushroms, onions, or whatever sounds good to you to have in there. Cook at 350 for about an hour. Draining the grease as it gets aboiut done, and for the last 15-20 minutes I pull it out and put more bbq sauce on top if it.

  • My trick is to saute all the vegetables that you add until they are transparent, let them cool and add the vegetables and any oil/butter left in the pan to the meat. It adds a ton of flavor.

  • I also have this one a friend gave me. I made it and it is good as well.
    2 eggs
    3/4 cup milk
    2/3 cup bread crumbs
    1/4 cup onion (i used onion soup mix)
    1.5lb ground beef

    Mix together all really well and pat it into a loaf pan. Bake @ 350 for 1 hour. At the end of the hour, mix together 1/4 cup ketchup, 2tblspns brown sugar, and a little bit of mustard and spread it on top. Bake for another 10 min and then it's done!

  • use ground turkey meat cooks in half the time and there is no grease it is so good. cut your bell peppers and onions add some creole seasoning and soul food, Ittalion seasoning and use crackers or cornflakes just crunch them up and two eggs and mix together and it cooks in about 15 to 30 minutes.

  • I don't follow a recipe really I just throw it all together. I get lots of compliments on it. I am guessing you are going to get alot of recipes but let me know if you want mine.

  • No measurements but I use..... bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, Lawrys, soy or worchestershire sauce, and an egg to bind it. Mix together (hands work best). Put in a loaf pan and bake at 350 for about 30-45 minutes until done. You can also throw in some shredded cheese.
