Friday Food – Meatloaf

Yeah, okay, not everyone likes meatloaf and it has a little bit of a bad rep, but who hasn’t grown up without having “Mom’s Mystery Meat?” (Unless you’re a vegetarian). It’s a good stick-to-your-ribs dish, and with the right spices, it’s amazing.


  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced (I use three large cloves, but I love garlic!)
  • 2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup bread or cracker crumbs
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped oregano or 1/2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp ketchup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a skillet over medium heat, sauté the onion and garlic in the oil. Remove from stove and set aside to cool. (Now, I skip this part normally, but it does add a nice flavour to the meatloaf in the end!)

In a large bowl, combine beef, eggs, bread crumbs, oregano, mustard, salt, pepper and onion and garlic mixture. Form a loaf and place into a loaf pan. Cover evenly with ketchup. (I don’t put the ketchup on top since Kyle doesn’t like it.)

Bake in the oven for 1 hour or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. Allow to rest and enjoy!

Suggested sides: Potatoes, rice, green beans
