~ My Version Of Pioneer Woman's Meatloaf ~

Cassie *


My mother was hungry for meatloaf, so I wanted to make something different and found this recipe. I didn't use the bacon as I felt there was enough fat in the ground beef and believe me, it didn't need it. I added onion and peppers to mine, as I can't imagine a meatloaf without. A few other minor changes I made. My mother loved it.

You could make one large loaf, but I know it would at least take 2 - 2 1/2 hours to bake. That's why I split mine.

How to Make ~ My Version Of Pioneer Woman's Meatloaf ~


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    In a bowl add bread and milk. Swish around so all bread is soaking the milk. Leave set for 15 minutes or so.

    In a large bowl, add ground beef, seasonings, eggs, parsley, soaked bread, peppers, onions and Parmesan cheese. Mix well, I use my hands.
  2. I split the mixture in half and shaped 2 loaves. Placed in a 9 x 13 baking dish.

    Make glaze by placing all ingredient in a bowl, and whisk until thoroughly blended.

    Spoon half the glaze between the 2 loaves. Bake for 45 minutes. Add more glaze and continue baking another 20 - 25 minutes or until meat is completely cooked.
  3. Leave set up before cutting, as this is a very tender loaf.

    Quite delicious! Enjoy!
