The Best Old Fashioned Meatloaf Recipe You Will Eat

This old fashioned meatloaf recipe is one I have used forever, tweaked here and there but always came back to this original recipe. It was the recipe my grandparents used, and their parents used, so you know it's good!

The Best Old Fashioned Meatloaf Recipe You Will Eat

Ingredients
  1. 2 eggs
  2. 3/4 cup milk
  3. 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  4. 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  5. 2 tablespoons snipped parsley
  6. 1 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
  8. 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  9. 1/4 cup catsup
  10. 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  11. 1 teaspoon dry mustard

Instructions
  • First, in a large bowl combine eggs and milk then stir in breadcrumbs. Next add in onion parsley, salt, sage, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Mix them together a few times then add in the beef and mix well. I suggest using your hands, and this is how I was taught, it mixes faster and better than using a spoon of any kind.
  • Shape your meatloaf into a 'loaf' shape in not using a bread pan, though I suggest you do, or use the mini loaf pan I mentioned above. Then go ahead and bake in a 350-degree oven for 50 minutes. Then make sure to spoon off excess fat. Keep in mind meatloaf can take longer to cook the thicker your meatloaf is. I like also making individual meatloaves for faster cooking time.
