Classic Meatloaf


For the Meatloaf:

-1 1/2 to 2 pounds ground beef
-1 small onion or half of a larger onion, chopped
-1/2 cup bread crumbs (I used Italian for extra flavor)
-1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
-1/4 cup parsley, chopped
-1/4 cup milk
-1 tablespoon garlic, minced (optional)
-2 eggs, beaten
-Salt and pepper

For the Glaze:

-1/2 cup Ketchup
-2 tablespoons brown sugar
-1 tablespoon mustard
-Dash of Worcestershire sauce


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Place all of the meatloaf ingredients into a bowl, and using your (very clean) hands, combine all of the ingredients.  Then, in a separate bowl, mix together all of the ingredients for the glaze.

Remove the meat mixture from the bowl and form into a loaf on a pan or baking dish.  Spread about 1/3 of the glaze over the loaf.  Place the loaf in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.  Add about another 1/3 of the glaze after the 45 minutes, and then cook for an additional 15 minutes.  Once the loaf is done (internal temp of the meat should be 155 degrees and/or no longer pink), remove from the oven and you can either top with the additional glaze or save it for serving, which is what I like to do.

Slice it up, serve warm with the extra glaze, and enjoy!
