I know there are tons of meatloaf recipes out there -- and I've tried many of them -- but this one is our family favorite. Leftovers make terrific sandwiches!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Heat oil. Cook onions, celery, carrots, garlic, and thyme until very soft. Let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the next 4 ingredients well. Incorporate the cooked vegetables. Pack tightly in a 10-inch loaf pan.
  3. Combine the 3 remaining ingredients and spread half of it on top of meatloaf (save remaining sauce to serve with the meatloaf).
  4. Cook in a water bath for 1 hour or until cooked the whole way through in 400 degree oven.
  5. (This makes a pretty large meatloaf -- I usually divide the mixture in half and cook one loaf and freeze the other one. I think it just depends on the size of your family).
