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
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!
