Classic Meatloaf

Rating: 3.5 stars 510
The combination of ground beef, ground pork, and ground veal produces a moist and tender traditional meatloaf. A sweet-and-sour glaze made with ketchup and brown sugar is brushed on the meatloaf before it bakes for about one hour 20 minutes. The result is a real comfort food favorite. 

Classic Meatloaf

Rating: 3.5 stars 705
Good meatloaf is about as comforting as comfort food gets. Thankfully, meatloaf doesn't have to be complicated to be good. It just needs to be tender (from breadcrumbs soaked in milk and gentle handling) and flavorful (from onion, garlic, and ketchup). We use a 50-50 mix of ground beef and ground pork and if you're wondering how long to cook meatloaf, this fan-favorite recipe takes 45-55 minutes at 400°F.
