The Best Meatloaf

Growing up, I did NOT like meatloaf.  Not sure why, but it just did not sound good to me.  However, a couple years ago, I had a craving...for meatloaf.  Yes, meatloaf.  So I went on the search for The Best Meatloaf and I found it!  My kids and husband eat this stuff up and almost always go back for seconds!

Here is the recipe...

The Best Meatloaf


1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 dash ground black pepper
1 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup Heinz 57 steak sauce
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup diced green bell pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, salt, egg, black pepper, and bread crumbs.  Pour in the milk, 3 tablespoons of the steak sauce, onion, and green bell pepper.  Combine.
  3. Place the mixture into the prepared loaf pan and shape into a loaf.  Brush the top with the remaining steak sauce.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour or until done in the middle.  Use a meat thermometer to make sure the center has reached at least 160 degrees.  Let the meatloaf sit for 5 minutes before slicing.

Served here with mashed potatoes and sweet corn. :)
