The classic meatloaf recipe has been around for generations, but there are a few tweaks that I like to make to make it even more delicious. This recipe is sure to impress your family and friends and will be a hit at the dinner table.
The first step in making a delicious meatloaf is to gather the necessary ingredients. Here is what you will need:
- 2 pounds of ground beef
- 1 small onion, diced
- 1/2 cup of bread crumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
- 1/4 cup of ketchup
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup of water
Now that you have gathered all of the ingredients, it is time to begin preparing the meatloaf. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion, bread crumbs, garlic powder, salt, pepper, ketchup, egg, and water. Once everything is mixed together, shape the mixture into a loaf and place it in a greased baking dish.
Baking the Meatloaf
Now it is time to bake the meatloaf. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes. After the hour and 10 minutes have elapsed, take the meatloaf out of the oven and check to make sure it is cooked through.
The Finishing Touches
Once the meatloaf is cooked through, it is time to add the finishing touches. Spread the remaining ketchup over the top of the meatloaf and sprinkle with some chopped parsley. Place the meatloaf back in the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
Serving the Meatloaf
Once the meatloaf is finished baking, take it out of the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Slice the meatloaf and serve it with your favorite sides.
