Meatloaf is one of our favorite fall/winter meals. It’s easy to make, feeds a large group and the leftovers are delicious! What’s not to love?! This recipe makes 2 full size loaves (if you choose to freeze one). I just make one giant loaf and use the leftovers for lunches throughout the week!


3 pounds lean ground beef

3 eggs (beaten)

2 teaspoons oregano

1 teaspoon thyme leaves

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

3/4 cup ketchup

1/4 cup mustard

1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon onion powder

2 sleeves Townhouse crackers (crushed)

1 1/2 Tablespoons seasoned salt

For topping:

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup ketchup

Mix all ingredients together (except the topping). Only mix it until the ingredients are combined. Over mixing can make your loaf tough and dense. I promise you, no one wants a tough and dense meatloaf! I like to use my mix and chop for this. It works like a dream and keeps the mixture light and airy. If you don’t have a mix and chop, you should order one immediately!! Click the link below to purchase one now!! I promise you, this will be your favorite kitchen tool! It does everything from mashing potatoes to shredding chicken!

Next, turn your mixture out onto a deep sided baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Form it into a log. And place into a preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

During the last 15 minutes, remove from oven and brush with the topping/glaze mixture. Return to oven and continue cooking another 15 minutes.

Finally, remove it from the oven and let it rest, covered with foil, for about 10-15 minutes. Slice and serve!

I hope you enjoy!
