In Ineskohl Kitchen, I will show you how to prepare Meatloaf at home.

What ingredients do you need for the Meatloaf recipe?

  • A cup of breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • A large onion
  • 1 kg of ground beef
  • 1 tsp of black pepper
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1 tsp of dried thyme
  • ¼ cup of chopped parsley
  • ¼ cup of tomato ketchup
  • 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • For the Meatloaf glaze, you will need half a cup of tomato ketchup, 2 tbsp of cider vinegar, and also 1 tbsp of brown sugar.

Preparing the Meatloaf recipe

  1. Start by preheating the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. You should spray or oil the loaf tin
  2. Work on the glaze and mix those ingredients, then set them aside.
  3. Now you want to focus on the Meatloaf. Use a large bowl and place the breadcrumbs there. This will be the starting point, now you want to grate over some onion and mix everything to ensure that the breadcrumbs are wet.
  4. After that, you just have to add the other ingredients and mix everything with your hands. The main focus is to try and create a loaf shape and try to pinch everything together and smooth the form. 
  5. Transfer everything to the loaf tin, and brush with glaze, use around half of it if possible. (
  6. Bake for around 45 minutes, and then remove it from the oven to brush using most of the glaze. Pour any of the extra fat that’s pooling, as needed. Once you do that, you can bake it for 30 more minutes, and then remove the Meatloaf from the oven.
  7. A good rule of thumb is to wait for 10 minutes before you cut anything since it’s important to let it rest. 
  8. You can serve the Meatloaf with some ketchup, maybe some steamed veggies and mashed potatoes.

Tips to consider when you prepare your Meatloaf

  • It’s very important to line the loaf pan with some parchment paper since it makes removing the Meatloaf easier at the end
  • When you add meat to the pan, you want to press it so it keeps its shape, otherwise, it won’t retain it.
  • If you overmix, then your Meatloaf will be very dense and tough, which adds its fair share of issues
  • You always want to finely chop the onion since it helps cook properly and without major restrictions.

The Meatloaf recipe is incredible and very tasty and people love it because it’s healthy and with a great flavor. It can take a bit of a trial and error to create the perfect Meatloaf, but with time and dedication, you can get some incredible results!
