Classic Meatloaf

meatloafHere is my classic meatloaf recipe.  There is nothing fancy about this meatloaf, but it has great diner meatloaf flavor. I like to serve this meatloaf with beef gravy (you can either make it homemade or use a can or jarred gravy) with mushrooms. It is great served with garlic mashed potatoes, but is pretty good served over wide egg noodles as well.




  • 2 to 2 1/2 pound lean ground beef or turkey
  • 3 slices of bread pulsed in food processor
  • 1/2 Vidalia onion pulsed in food processor until almost liquid
  • 1/2 of a green pepper pulsed in food processor until almost liquid
  • 4 tablespoons catsup
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Pulse bread slices – set aside in bowl
  • Pulse Vidalia onion and green pepper until it is almost a liquid, leaving no chunks
  • Place meat in large bowl, add egg, catsup, worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano and bread.
  • Mix well and then place mixture in a loaf baking dish
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour
  • Serve with gravy or catsup
