My personal recipe for meatloaf. Let it be said, I am NOT a fan of meatloaf at all, but this has won me over. It was originally an old friend's recipe and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

How to Make Meatloaf


  1. Combine eggs and milk; stir in breadcrumbs, onion, spices, sal and pepper. Add meat and mix lightly.

    NOTE: I personally use Italian Breadcrumbs instead of just regular. If you do this, you don't have to add the extra oregano, sage, and basil. I will do this depending on what is in my pantry at the time!
  2. Bake at 350 for 1 - 1:15 hour. Spoon off fat. combine ketchup, sugar, and mustard and spread over meat. Bake for 10 mins more.
  3. You can also make these into individual patties for use as a burger, or to maybe have a smaller portion!
