When I was younger, I never cared for meatloaf. As I grew older, I began to love and especially love it leftover as a sandwich with cheese and mayo. My sons never cared for it either but suddenly in their mid and late 20’s love it. I guess it’s something you hate as a kid but love as an adult!


1 lb. hamburger mix

1 lb. 80% lean ground hamburger (or 2 lb. mix)

1 cup bread crumbs

1 small onion diced fine

1 egg, lightly beaten

¼ cup Milk

¼ cup ketchup

1 tsp. pepper

1 tsp. salt

2 tbsp. ground Pecorino Romano (see my post on grating your own)

1 tsp. ground mustard

1 tbsp. Worchester sauce

Topping: ½ cup ketchup/3 tbsp. brown sugar; mix

*I like to dice/mince my onion in a food processor. I use the small compartment of a Ninja three piece food processor.



Add to hamburger to a large mixing  bowl.  Add the rest of the ingredients mix by hand until all is incorporated.

Add aluminum foil in a baking pan. Spray with Pam.

Form your meatloaf mixture into an oval shape & place in pan.

Pour the ketchup/brown sugar topping over top and bake 375° for 1 hour 15 mins.

Let rest 10 minutes when done.

I serve with scalloped potatoes and green beans or mashed potatoes, cream corn and green beans. For some reason, I just think green beans go great with meatloaf. Of course you can serve it with whatever veggie you prefer! However, leftovers are delicious on a bread with mayo (some like yellow mustard) and a slice of American cheese.
