- Ready In:
- 1hr 25mins
- 2 lbs ground beef (or a combination thereof of pork or beef, or maybe some veal, if youÃ¢ re feeling maniacal)
- 2 tablespoons prepared mustard (cheap old yellow will do)
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄4 cup ketchup
- 3 tablespoons vinegar
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1 small onion, minced finely
- 1 garlic clove
- 2 pieces bread, torn into small pieces
- bacon fat (for pan-greasing)
For the Sauce
- 3 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 pinch salt
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Grease a loaf pan with bacon fat
- In a medium-large mixing bowl, put all main ingredients in and mix until it’s sticky and combined. Don’t over-mix though, or you’ll have pelletloaf, not meatloaf.
- Put into the loaf pan, smooth the top out a bit if you would like. Bake for an hour or until it reaches 165 degrees on a meat thermometer.
- While it’s in the oven, mix up the sauce ingredients. Just before meatloaf is done (10 minutes or so), spoon/brush sauce over the top, return to oven and let it go in there for the remaining time/temperature. Voila. You have meatloaf.

Culinary school drop-out (happy cook)! My name is Meg, as my public name might suggest, and I'm 20 years old. So far, I've been a cook my whole life, at home and in restaurants, working as a Baker's Assistant right now. I was raised in a commercial bakery and general store as well run by my aunt and mom. I'm engaged to an amazing guy, who I met in high school in a restaurant prep course. We both went to college for Culinary Arts/Chef Training, but neither found the program very satisfying. As it stands, we're both happiest cooking, so long as it's not in a kitchen lab. I've been nosing around 'Zaar since I was about 13 or 14, and it's been a huge source of learning for me, back when I didn't even know what a roux was, haha. If you've seen me around before, I'm the former SugarMegnolia. Also, I write a blog, however, I'm not always the best at keeping up with it, but try to put in my best effort whenever I get around to writing. The link is here, please give it a quick look-see!
