Easy to Follow Recipe for Making Delicious Meatloaf

Combining beef and pork into this classic meatloaf recipe, ensures the loaf will remain moist and tender and full of flavor. The dish comes together fairly quickly by mixing all ingredients in one large bowl either by hand or using an electric mixer or stand mixer. Once fully cooked, remove from the oven and allow it cool for a few minutes. Save the juices from the pan and pour it over top of the cooked meatloaf before serving for added flavor and moistness.

Pressed for time?

Sometimes finding an hour to bake in the oven is a challenge. So instead of making a meatloaf, you can form the meat mixture into individual patties. Once all ingredients are combined, separate it into 1 cup portions and form them into single patties. Fry the patties on the stovetop in a pan with hot oil.
