Best Ever Meatloaf
80 mins (prep 20, cooking 60)
12 ingredients
1 servings
I have been making this meatloaf for years now and we all love it. You'll find quite a bit of grease in the bottom of your loaf pan, even when using lean ground beef. When I first started making this meatloaf, I would end up pouring off most of the sauce (the best part!) when draining the fat, so now I bake the meatloaf first without the sauce, then drain off the fat, then spread the sauce on top and return it to the oven for about 5-10 more minutes. I also usually double the ingredients for the sauce so that I have some sauce to serve with the leftovers (if you manage to have any!). Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
