Traditional Meatloaf: Serves 3-4
1lb Ground Beef – I am using 93% Lean
1oz Cheddar Cheese Finely Grated
1 Egg – beaten
1/4C Bread Crumbs
2-3 Shakes Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 C Ketchup
1/2tsp Garlic Powder
1/2tsp Onion Powder
Salt & Pepper
Mix all ingredients together and put into a greased loaf pan and bake at 375° for approximately 30 minutes until cooked through. 10 minutes before it is done spread additional ketchup on the top of the loaf and it will turn into a sweet glaze on top of the loaf.
If you are unsure if you have enough seasonings in the meat you can always test it by making a small meat ball and microwaving it for 15-20 seconds to cook and give you a bite to taste test. I use this often to gauge if meatballs or meatloaf are properly seasoned prior to cooking.
Optional Additions: To make this a little bit healthier you can also add 1/2 an onion and 1/2 a bell pepper diced to the meat loaf.
