Best Meatloaf

If you grew up eating your mama's meatloaf, you will love this recipe.  Not fancy by any means but simple, flavorful and easy!  You should have most of the ingredients in your kitchen or pantry.  I use chuck for the flavor but you can use other cuts of beef.  Easily serves 4 to 6.

Sometimes I like to top this meatloaf with carmelized onions before serving.  

Best Meatloaf

Ingredients-meat loaf

•  1 large egg, beaten

•  1¼ cups whole milk

•  1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

•  1 small onion, ¼-inch dice

•  1 cup dry breadcrumbs (I use Pepperridge Farm)

•  1½ lbs ground beef (I use chuck)

•  1¼ tsp sea salt

•  ¼ tsp black pepper

•  ¼ tsp each of ground garlic, celery seed and dry mustard

 

Glaze

 

•  Combine ½ cup ketchup, 2 Tbsp packed brown sugar and 2 tsp

 

 

    prepared yellow mustard in a small bowl; stir well to incorporate

 

 

    the brown sugar..

Preheat oven to 350°F.  You will need a 9x5-inch loaf pan,

 

 

ungreased.

 

Instructions

1.   Whisk the egg, milk, Worcestershire sauce and onion in a large           bowl.

2.  Add the rest of the meatloaf ingredients and combine gently             but  thoroughly.  (I use glove-covered hands to do this).

3.  Spoon into the loaf pan and pat into a flat layer*.

4.  Spread glaze over meatloaf; bake for 1 hour.  Remove from oven;        tilt pan** and pour off grease; return to oven and finish baking

      until internal temperature registers 160°F.  Let sit in pan for 10                minutes then drain again: remove to serving plate.

        *Lay a piece of plastic wrap on the top to make it easier to                     smooth the top.

     **I fold a piece of foil and hold it on the top of the meatloaf                      while tilting the pan.
