50’s Classic Meatloaf

READY IN: 1hr 26mins
Recipe by Douglas Poe

Back in the 50’s and 60’s this was a weekly staple for family. If you want to fancy it up, substitute green peppers with 1/4 cup red peppers and 1/4 cup green peppers.

My husband asked for meatloaf for dinner so I made this for him tonight. I had to make it with just ground beef since I had no pork on hand, but it still came out delicious. I made it with 1 lb of ground beef, one egg and about 3/4 cup of breadcrumbs. Everything else I made the same. The glaze was especially good. Thanks!
