Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:1 hour 15 minutes
Total Time:1 hour 25 minutes


  • 2 lb of ground beef or mixtures of ground beef, ground turkey and/or ground pork
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 1 Cup bread crumbs or dry uncooked oatmeal
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Cup ketchup


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Put the ground meat, eggs, chopped onions, bread crumbs/oats, Worcestershire sauce and 1/2 cup of the ketchup into a large bowl.
  • Mix all ingredients together (Some people try to do this with a large paddle spoon, but I just smash everything together using one hand, keeping the other hand clean so I can add more bread crumbs or oats, if necessary - the mixture should be firm, so it will stick together while baking, but not stiff.
  • While the mixture is still in the bowl, begin shaping it into one or two oblong "loaves."
  • Put the loaf or loaves into the prepared baking pan.
  • Top the loaf/loaves with the rest of the ketchup.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for about 75 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and immediately take your meatloaf out of the pan and place on plate.
  • Allow the meatloaf to cool for five minutes before slicing.
  • Serve and enjoy.
