meatloaf on white plate with mashed potatoes.


For my meatloaf recipe, I venture away from the traditional recipe just a little bit as I like to use a mixture of ground hamburger and ground Italian sausage.

Servings 4 Servings



  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1/2 pound of mild Italian sausage
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 medium onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup plus some for the top of the meatloaf
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. I like to use my hands to combine everything, I think it works better than a spoon and is more fun. Transfer to a loaf pan. Using the ketchup bottle squeeze some ketchup on top of the meatloaf in a zigzag pattern, about 1 tablespoon.
  • Cook for 1hr or until the internal temperature is 160 degrees. Remove from oven, cover and let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
