No loafin’ here meatloaf

This is a moist and favorable meatloaf worthy of company, a birthday gathering or just for making any day special! I served this with my beet salad “ It beets me on JAP “ and buttermilk mashed potatoes.
The reason I cook down the ketchup is, well for one thing this is how my mother did it anytime she made meatloaf, stuffed peppers or stuffed cabbage.
And for another reason it turns the ketchup into tomato candy! All the sugars just go crazy and you really could eat it all by its self.
And using the 85/15 blend assures you won’t have any grease to deal with.

How to Make No loafin’ here meatloaf


  1. Take a small sauce pot and put the ketchup in and cook on low “stirring often“to reduce it to 1 cup, set aside. You’ll know it’s done when it gets a dark red in color, also the type of ketchup you use will determine how long you’ll have to cook this as some ketchups are thinner than others. You’ll want to do this on the lowest heat possible, because the sugar can go from candy to belch in a nano second, stir this often too.
  2. In a large mixing bowl put in the milk and bread and let it soak for about 15 minutes. After that time, remove the bread squeezing it and discard the milk.
  3. Put the bread back into the bowl.
  4. Add the sirloin, onions, garlic, egg, egg yolk, salt, pepper, ½ cup of the reduced ketchup, broth from the onion soup to the milk soaked bread.
  5. Add the Panko bread crumbs.
  6. Mix the meat mixture for only a few minutes, if it seems to wet add more Panko “ about ¼ cup “ and mix again.
  7. Put about 2/3 of the meat into a small pan, place the onions from the soup on top.
  8. Take the other 1/3 of the meat and put it on the top and seal the edges.
  9. Spread the other ½ cup of ketchup on top of the meat loaf.
  10. Bake 350 for about 45 minutes loosely covered, uncover and bake for additional 15 minutes. The time will vary depending on how your oven is and if you make a flatter meatloaf or a more traditional one in a loaf pan.
