Apologize for blurry picture
If you imagine meatloaf to be dry and bland, then you should try give this recipe a try! All you do is mix and put in the oven. I've researched several top rated meatloaf recipes and took out what sounded good to me and combined them into one. I was a bit worried about how it'll come out, but it was a success! 


Ground beef - 1 lbs 12 oz
Brown sugar - 2 TBS
Ketchup - 1/2 cup
Eggs - 2 (beaten)
Dry onion soup mix - 3/4 packet
Black pepper - 1/2 tsp
Shredded cheese - 1/3 cup
Buttery round crackers (like Ritz) - 1 cup
Worcestershire sauce - 1/2 TBS **see TIPS

Ketchup - 1/2 cup
Worcestershire sauce - 1 TBS
Yellow mustard (powder) - 1 TBS
Brown sugar - 1/4 cup


  1. In a Ziplock bag, crush butter crackers. 
  2. Prepare 5 by 9 (or 10) loaf pan. Line with double aluminum foil (or single layer of baking aluminum foil) 
  3. Mix glaze ingredients together and set it aside


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a big bowl, mix all ingredients together. Use your hands (important! make sure it's clean, though. haha) and mix in all together. The consistency should be somewhat wet - it's hard to make a meatball out of it, but solid enough to be pressed down into the pan. 
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. 
  4. Take it out and put the glaze. Return to the oven for another 15 minutes. Take it out and let it cool for 5-10 minutes before serving. 


  1. It goes well with mashed potatoes, grilled veggies, salad and/or dinner rolls. 
  2. Some people eat meatloaf as a sandwich - maybe give it a try with the leftovers? 


  • Instead of Worcestershire sauce, you can use BBQ sauce or Steak sauce.
