    BecR's Note:

    A real family pleaser, and great comfort food. Great served with green beans and mashed potatoes, with extra catsup on the side. I usually double the recipe and make two loaves in order to have extra for meatloaf sandwiches the next day--yum!!! Recipe is from my mother who learned it from my Oma, growing up.

    Serves: 6



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/3 lbs ground beef (I like it with ground round)
    • 2 eggs
    • 3 tablespoons onions, finely chopped
    • salt and pepper, to taste
    • 1 slice white bread, torn into 1/2 inch chunks
    • 1/8-1/4 cup milk
    • 1 slice bacon, uncooked, cut crosswise into narrow strips (1/4-inch x 1-inch slivers)
    • 1 tablespoon fine breadcrumbs (generous, a grated hard roll, oats or wheat germ will do)
    • 1 tablespoon catsup (generous)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Soak white bread in enough milk to make a mush, set aside.
    3. 3
      Mix together ground beef, eggs, onion, salt and pepper; blend well.
    4. 4
      Add bread/milk mixture to the meat mixture.
    5. 5
      Pat meat into a loaf shape and place onto baking sheet with a lip to catch drippings (line the pan with foil for easy cleanup).
    6. 6
      Press bacon slivers gently into top of loaf with pointed tip of a knife.
    7. 7
      Spoon catsup generously on top of meatloaf, then sprinkle with fine breadcrumbs.
    8. 8
      Bake for 50-60 minutes, until the meat is nicely browned and topping is caramelized.
    9. 9
      Leftovers make very delectable sandwiches the following day, so you may wish to double the recipe and make two loaves! I prefer white bread for mine, with just a little catsup. DH likes his with whole grain wheat bread and lotsa catsup. I hope you enjoy :).

      delicious.. very juicy, full of flavor and crispy on the top too.. I was too lazy to cut up the bacon, so I made my meatloaf elongated like a rectangle and stretched over slices of bacon on it. The drippings in the pan also made quite a bit of smoke, but luckily the meatloaf itself never burned. End result was still very tasty. Thanks!

      This is pretty flavourful with a mix of minced pork and beef. Served it with caramelized onions, radish-tinged mash potato and saute'ed celery. My German other half ate quite a lot of it. ;-)
