Meatloaf recipes?

Recommended Posts


Stove Top


Mix the 2 together, roll into balls and place in cupcake tin, bake until done :001_smile:


I'm sure you can place in any pan or make it a loaf or whatever.

I liked it because it was different, I'm not a big meatloaf person anyway.


Maybe I will see one that catches my eyes here and try it

This is the recipe my whole family loves!


Italian Meatloaf

1 1/2 lb. ground beef

1 egg

3/4 c. cracker crumbs

1/2 c. chopped onion

1/3 c. tomato sauce

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. oregano

1/4 tsp. pepper

Combine all and shape into a rectangle on waxed paper. Sprinkle with 1 c. grated mozarella and roll up like a jelly roll. Bake in a loaf pan at 350 for 1 hour. Pour 2/3 c. tomato sauce over top. Bake 15 more minutes.

Well-that depends. What have you got?


You need hamburger meat.


Some kind of veggie-onions, bell pepper, zucchini, carrots (I like onions and carrots, adds some sweetness to it), celery, whatever to help it stay moist. Cook these in a little oil before adding to your meatloaf.


You need an egg and some herbs.


Some sort of liquid-I like chili sauce, ketchup and/or worcestershire sauce.


Some sort of starch-rice, macaroni, bread crumbs, etc.


I vary my recipe depending on what I have handy. However, Alton Brown has a good recipe, just search on http://www.foodtv.com for good eats meatloaf.

I don't have a set recipe. When my kids were younger, I used to make "meat muffins" like Kristy does. They were perfect for little kids. Now that I have three teenagers, I usually spend time after a Costco run making two or three meatloaves to freeze for future meals. Here is the general idea (sorry, I just eyeball the quantities - this is my best guess on quantities for 12-15 pounds of ground meat):



Italian Bread Crumbs (3-4 cups - sounds like a lot, but it works)

3-4 eggs

Ketchup - 1/2 c. to 1 c.

Worchestershire sauce - 1/2 c.?(If I'm out of Wxxxx sauce, I will sub A-1 or another steak sauce)

Italian Seasoning (5-6 good shakes from a big bottle)

Garlic powder + onion powder (2-4 good shakes)


Mash it all up with your hands, form in to loaves and wrap it up for the freezer. I usually cook my meatloaves in the crockpot. I toss them in the crockpot frozen in the morning and cook on low all day. Depending on what else we're having I'll top the frozen meatloaf with bbq sauce, tomato sauce, steak sauce or just leave it plain.

I make a sweeter meatloaf. I can't give you quantities, I just throw stuff in there.


Ground meat

Chopped onion


Rolled Oats


Brown Sugar

Salt and Pepper


Mix it all together, shape or put in a pan, put some ketchup on top, and bake.

Dh grew up with it, so it's his favorite. I occasionally try another recipe, but this is my go-to for meatloaf.



1 lb. ground beef

1 egg

garlic powder (to taste...I think I use about a teaspoon)

1/4 t. pepper

1t. salt

1/2 t. celery salt

1/4 t. paprika

1 c. milk

1/2 c. bread crumbs (sometimes I use regular, sometimes Italian)

3/4 c. cheese


Mix, press into 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for at least 1 hour (I often bake for 1 1/2 hrs because we like crunchy edges). You can top with additional cheese and BBQ sauce or ketchup 15-30 minutes before done (but I never do).

I"ve only made it in the Microwave - the recipe in the GE Cookbook.


I have it scanned - but i probably can't post that?! (you need to see the directions or i'd just type it up).


But it's moist, easy and cooks quick. It's been hard trying to figure out how long to cook it since the microwave we have now doesn't have a temp probe.


AND, my DD2 with food issues - ASKS me to make it!


Yummmm, maybe that should be dinner tonight?!

Here's one that Martha Stewart's mom did and we've cooked. It's very yummy. :001_smile:http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.fc77a0dbc44dd1611e3bf410b5900aa0/?vgnextoid=af7b9a79b9b65110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&autonomy_kw=meatloaf&rsc=header_4
