Better Tasting Meatloaf

J. White Harris


I wanted to put together a better tasting meatloaf. I reviewed bunches of recipes and picked ingredients that I thought would work good together and produce a really good taste. After some testing I came up with this recipe and the results are outstanding. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.

How to Make Better Tasting Meatloaf


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. In a bowl, combine the eggs, milk, stuffing mix, chopped onion, chopped green pepper, garlic, salt, sage, and pepper. Add beef and pork; mix thoroughly.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce, stirring to dissolve sugar, remove 1/2 cup sauce to put on top of meatloaf. Mix the remaining sauce into meatloaf mixture.
  4. Divide meat mixture in half and put into two lightly greased loaf pans. Add sauce to the top of each meatloaf.
    Put a rack in the bottom of a 9 X 13 baking pan. Put the meatloaves on the rack, this will keep the meatloaves up out of the grease. Spread the sauce over the top of the meatloaves.
  5. Bake 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into meatloaf reads 160°. Let stand 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
