Hey Grandpa, What’s For Supper? – Classic Meat Loaf

D1D4FE9E-626F-42F1-9CAB-487194E81BC0I have to be honest, I’m not a big fan of meatloaf but I have several friends and family members that love it, hot or cold.  So I found this recipe from www.beefitswhatsfordinner.com that they all seem to love. I don’t get it, I rather have a juicy burger but ….

Classic Beef Meatloaf

1 ½ lbs. ground beef (93% lean or leaner)

¾ c. Panko bread crumbs

¾ c. ketchup, divided

½ c. minced onion

1 egg

1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp. minced garlic

1 tsp. dried thyme leaves

¾ tsp. pepper

½ tsp. salt

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine ground beef, bread crumbs, ½ cup ketchup, onion, egg, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, thyme, pepper and salt in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.  Shape beef into 8 x 4 inch loaf on rack in aluminum foil-lined broiler pan.

Place on upper rack in oven and bake 45 to 55 minutes, until instant read thermometer inserted into center registers 160 degrees; brush with remaining ¼ cup ketchup during last 10 minutes of baking if desired.  Let stand 10 minutes. Cut into slices. Good warm or cold (or so I’m told, still not eating it!)
