Meatloaf Recipe

When I was young, my mother never cooked meatloaf, and I was inquisitive about tasting it. I finally tasted it in a restaurant and loved it. So I started to cook this dish and came up with this personalized version, the one I love above everything else.

Preparation: 15min

Cooking: 1h10min

Ready in : 1h25min 

Servings: 12


  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ tsp. ground pepper
  • 2 lb. extra-lean ground beef
  • 3 slices of bread, toasted and crumbled
  • 7 butter crackers, crumbled
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 ½ tbsp. sour cream
  • 1 ½ tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 can (398 ml) tomato sauce, divided
  • 1/4 cup of milk (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup

Steps of preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat and cook onion and garlic for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine onion, garlic, beef, crumbled bread, crumbled crackers, egg, sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, and half the can of tomato sauce. Add 1 tsp. At a time, milk until the mixture is just moist but not liquid. Press into the bottom of a 5 x 9-inch loaf pan.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 400°F (200°C) and continue baking for 15 minutes, until the meatloaf reaches a temperature of 160°F (70°C).
  5. In a small bowl, combine the remaining tomato sauce with the ketchup and spread it over the meatloaf. Bake for another 10 minutes.
