Top Notch Meat Loaf

"I also wanted to make my own meatloaf recipe and share it. I've tried all different types of ingredients until I finally came up with this recipe and if it is followed to the T, it is, in my honest opinion the best tasting meatloaf that I ever had. As long as you use the ingredients listed in this recipe you will most likely agree. I paired mine with sweat peas, mashed potatoes and gravy. I used the powdered gravy. But you can make your own as long as it is a beef flavored gravy, it will be delicious."

Serves8 two slices each

Cooking Vessel SizeLoaf Pan


  • (2-pound) total of ground beef, pork and veal
  • 8 baby carrots (See Directions number 1)
  • 1 large onion (See Directions number 1)
  • 1 red bell pepper (See Directions number 1)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon Course ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup Italian style bread crumbs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 large eggs

  2. In a medium to large bowl, break apart and crumble all of the ground meat

  3. Combine all ingredients with exception of tomatoes and ketchup. Mix very well so that all ingredients are incorporated into the ground beef, pork and lamb. The mixture should be just a little tacky. if it is too sloppy, ad just a little bit more of bread crumbs

  4. Pack into a meatloaf pan making sure to pack the meat mixture tight.

  5. Evenly lay three sliced tomatoes across the top and squeeze some ketchup over top so that you just cover the tomatoes.

  6. Refrigerate for at least one hour.

  7. Set oven to 350 and bake for 1hour and 20 minutes or longer. (150 degrees with meat thermometer).

  8. When done, pull out of oven and let stand for 20 to 30 minutes. Then slice as needed. Enjoy!
