My No-Fail Meatloaf

This is my absolutely favorite meatloaf. I LOVE meatloaf, I could eat it every week. My kids hate it and I blame myself for it. I never made a good meatloaf until I created this recipe and my husband told me how is Mom made it. I took various recipes and my husband suggestions and created this recipe. It is very basic, but that’s what I love about it. I don’t want anything really different in my meatloaf. No green peppers, no pineapple! Just a good basic meatloaf. I hope you like it as much as we do.


1 pound ground beef, I like to use 90/10
1 pound ground pork
2/3 C bread crumbs
1 egg
1 Tbsp oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/3 C plus 1 Tbsp ketchup
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2/3 C half-n-half

4 Tbsp apple-cider vinegar
2/3 C your favorite BBQ sauce or ketchup
3 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 C ketchup

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine all the meatloaf ingredients. Place into a loaf pan or shape into a loaf and place on a foil or parchment lined baking sheet. Smooth the top.
3. Combine the sauce ingredients and pour over the top and sides of meatloaf.
4. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
