Meatloaf is one of those meals I never wanted to make because I never had a great recipe. Here is one that is simple, but moist and flavorful.

Prep:
30 Min
Cook:
1 Hr 10 Min

Ingredients

2 1/2 lb
ground beef
1 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
2
onions, yellow, medium
1 tsp
thyme, dried
3 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce
1/3 c
water
1 Tbsp
ketchup
1/2 c
bread crumbs, seasoned
2
eggs
1/2 c
ketchup

Step-By-Step

1In a large skillet over medium-low heat add olive oil, diced onions, thyme, and salt & pepper and saute until translucent (approx. 8-10 mins)
2Remove from heat and add the worcestershire sauce, water (you can use beef or chicken stock/broth for added flavor if desired) & 1 tblsp. ketchup. Set aside to cool slightly.
3In a large bowl mix ground beef & onion mixture together. Then add in the eggs and bread crumbs. Mix all of this together with a fork or your hands, but do compact meat.
4Place the meat mixture on a sheet pan greased with olive oil and form into a loaf shape, making sure it is the same thickness throughout so it will cook evenly.
5Spread 1/2 cup ketchup on the top and place in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour - 1 hour 10 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 155-160 degrees. To keep the meatloaf moist while cooking, place a pan of hot water in the oven on the rack underneath it.
