This recipe was given to me by my mother in-law. My DH loves all of my cooking and creations. But he always requests that his meat loaf be made this way.

Good recipe for meatloaf... I added the optional ketchup but not the bacon and also added a heaped tablespoon of chipotle pepper in adobe that I pureed with the onion because DH always prefers stronger flavours and wanted it in. This is quite a soft meatloaf and it cooked up well. My roasting dish is truely massive and I was worried that if I should spead the meatloaf out then it would be too dry so I put it into a ceramic dish and poured off the excess fat half way though the cooking time and that seemed to go well. Please see my rating system: a lovely 4 stars for a recipe that is versitile and easy and where adding a little extra hot pepper works well for DH too. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a food processor or blender, puree the onion.
  2. After the onion is done, mix in two eggs, 1/3°C Milk and set aside the liquid mixture.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, 1 cup of the bread crumbs, spices and the liquid ingredients.
  4. If the mixture seems too wet, mix in the remaining bread crumbs.
  5. (Depends on the size and moisture content of the onion.) Cook on a roasting pan at 350 degrees.
  6. Do not cook in a bread pan, the liquids will stay in the pan with the meat. Not a pretty sight!
  7. Options:
  8. Childhood memory option: Put as many figure sized holes in the top or shape the meat loaf into your favorite childhood action figure. Then fill in the holes with ketchup.
  9. Adult option: Roll the meat loaf into a log and wrap with the sliced bacon.
