Best Meatloaf Recipe

Meat Loaf is one of our family's comfort food. It is so easy to prepare and can be eaten with any side dish or as a meatloaf sandwich with the leftovers. My husband loves it with lots of onion but my kids are not so fun of big chunky onion or any herbs, so I make sure to finely chopped all the ingredients and not to put too much. Meatloaf can be make in different ways so don't settle  for only what is written in the recipe. You can add ingredients of your choice too.  Here is one of my quick and easy meatloaf recipe. I made this one, not so complicated by using few ingredients only.

  • 1 tbsp to 1/4 cup  fresh parsley, finely chopped 
  • 1 tbsp to 1/4 cup fresh  oregano, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F. 
  2. In a small bowl, combine eggs and milk. Mix well.
  3. In large bowl, combine ground meat and the rest of the ingredients. Add egg and milk mixture. Mix well.
  4. Press mixture in ungreased loaf pan. 
  5. Cover with aluminum foil and let rest for at least 1 hour.
  6. Bake the meat loaf just before serving at 350°F. for 1 hour.
  7. Remove from oven. Spread 1/2 cup ketchup evenly over top. 
  8. Return to oven, bake for 20-30 minutes more.
