Hey, hey! Valentina with Valentina’s Corner sharing our Meatloaf recipe.

Meatloaf Recipe:

Ground beef mixed with onion, Panko breadcrumbs, fresh parsley and seasonings produces an irresistibly tender and juicy meatloaf. The sweet and tangy glaze adds amazing flavor to this classic meatloaf.

Tips on How to Make the BEST Meatloaf:

  • DO NOT OVERMIX which can result in a tough/dense meatloaf
  • Line your loaf pan with parchment paper with edges hanging over the pan for easier removal of meatloaf. 
  • Keep the juices from the pan and pour over the sliced meatloaf before serving.
  • Chop the onion finely, allowing it to cook through (or sautee onion before adding)
  • Gently press meat into the pan so it holds its shape.
  • Rest meatloaf for 10 minutes before slicing

What is the Best Meat for Meatloaf?

You want to use ground beef that is 85% or 90% lean meat. Do not worry about using lean meat – the rest of the ingredients will keep your meatloaf moist and juicy. Avoid super lean meats. 

Meatloaf Sauce:

This meatloaf sauce is incredible as a glaze for the meatloaf with the perfect balance of sweet and tangy flavors. Ketchup combined with brown sugar, garlic and onion powder, salt, pepper and vinegar creates an irresistible sauce. Once baked, the glaze caramelizes and is SO GOOD!

Can I bake Meatloaf on a baking sheet?

For crispier edges, bake meatloaf on a baking sheet. Out of foil, create a self-made pan with edges to keep the drippings from the meatloaf as it’s baked. Shape meatloaf and place into the foil. Continue with baking instructions. NOTE: Baking time may slightly vary, depending on the shape and thickness of the meatloaf.

How long to cook Meatloaf?

Cook the meatloaf uncovered for 40 minutes at 375°F. Add the sauce, and bake an additional 15-20 minutes, or until internal temperature is 160°F. If using a smaller loaf pan than 9″x5″, increase cooking time.

Leftover Meatloaf?

If you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, here are some leftover meatloaf ideas (and I’d love to hear your ideas in a comment below):

Can you freeze Meatloaf?

Yes, meatloaf may be frozen before cooking. To freeze, prepare meatloaf per instructions. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and foil and freeze.

Defrost the raw meatloaf in the refrigerator covered. Continue with baking instructions.

    Made this for the first time and it was fabulous. I used a meat blend from our butcher of Ground beef, pork and veal (1.5lbs) and I think that was a big factor. Paired it with some thyme glazed carrots and bang,,,, great meal.

    This is almost exactly how my mom makes her meatloaf since I was a little girl , and how I’ve been making it for years. Except we use a pack of Lipton Dry Onion Soup Mix, instead of the seasoning & onion in your recipe. We also only use ketchup and Brown sugar for the glaze. Anyone I have ever made this for absolutely raves over it, even my friends who say they don’t like meatloaf. I am making it tonight and I’m going to try and add in some of your ingredients for the sauce and see how it goes. I was excited to see your recipe because no one I know makes meatloaf like we do 😍

    This was my first time making meatloaf and omg. This meatloaf was so moist and delicious, but held together nicely. The sauce was perfect, not overly ketchupy at all. I did end up using 1/2 ground pork & 1/2 veal for the meat because I didn’t have any ground beef thawed, but kept everything else the same. Definitely adding to the recipe book! Thank you! (:

    I changed two things. I used 1.5 pounds of frozen meatloaf mix, and 1/2 pound frozen ground turkey because that’s all I had. I also made it into a flatter loaf on a sheet pan for more surface area for the sauce and skipped the loaf pan. OMG….. THIS IS AMAZING! I will prob decrease the brown sugar in the sauce next time as a personal preference, but otherwise this is AMAZING and a keeper for sure!

    Unfortunately, I tried this recipe and was not impressed. I should have kept with my other one. The sauce doesn’t have enough time to cook through and still has a strong ketchupy taste to it. It should be added at or near the beginning of cook time.

      Hi Amanda, 15-20 minutes should be ample for the glaze in the oven but you can leave it on longer if you prefer a dryer glaze. Also, it shouldn’t come across as tasting strongly of ketchup. Did you add the remaining ingredients listed?

    What I love most about a well-written recipe is making it my own. I used Impossible “meat” instead of beef, and added Sriracha to the glaze (and I was a little short on ketchup but added a little bit of honey to balance the added heat). I’m definitely one for adding this, tasting, adding that, tasting…but without the recipe I don’t know where to start. End result…yowza, that’s a keeper!

    I made my meatloaf using this recipe. I changed the ketchup and panko bread crumbs with tomato sauce and seasoned stuffing bread crumbs respectively. My husband and I agree this was the best. The mealoaf was moist, not dry. I didn’t make the sauce that was included, I made a brown gravy. So glad I decided to stray from my normal recipe. Thanks for sharing.

    I made only a couple of small tweaks. I omitted the Italian herbs (I’m Italian, and I didn’t want it to taste Italian! HaHa!), and cut the glaze in half. It took longer in the oven to reach 160 degrees, but I know everything takes longer in my oven. I broiled the top a few minutes to caramelize the topping. Oh so delicious!! A nice sweet taste as I love in my meatloaf!! Tasted even better at room temperature. I kept eating it as I was trying to put the rest away. Can’t wait for meatloaf sandwiches tonight! So good!

          Bacon puffs can usually be found in the chip section at the store. They are easy to crush and add some nice flavor, plus gluten free 🙂

    Made this last night for my boyfriend. I added about a TBSP worchestire sauce and maybe same of soy sauce. Used only 1 LB ground beef and cut the rest of the recipe in half. He said it was the best he has ever had. He actually used the phrase “knocked it out of the park” lmao – he never speaks like that. I do cook a lot and when he praises highly means he really loved it. I said, you want the leftover for lunch tomorrow- “Hell yeah” 🙂

    Question about the meatloaf recipe…..is the onion a definite, can’t do without it, or can it be omitted? And if I’m low on Panko can I use regular bread crumbs for the recipe to be a success? I’m taking this to my in-laws, tomorrow. I really don’t want to disappoint

    My family really enjoyed this recipe. The fresh parsley is a game changer, and after using it here, I’ll never skimp on it again if I have the choice. The only thing I changed was to add Worcestershire sauce to the glaze. It was good the way it’s written, but we just love the W sauce. We will definitely have this again!

My husband did request to put three or 4 tablespoons of applesauce in it. That’s how they do it at this little diner in Melbourne Florida. It gives it a nice taste and also keeps it real moist.

I do only use 1 pound of grass fed beef and then adjust the ingredients accordingly. I use a glass loaf pan which I lightly spray with avocado oil. I use the lightly dried herbs along with almond/coconut milk, and organic coconut sugar. It is a very moist meatloaf. Thanks for a great recipe!!!

      Hi Nancy, this is normally very moist and tender. You might consider if any of the ingredients were substituted or if possibly you baked on convection settings? If you did that without making convection baking adjustments, it would be overbaked and dry. Also, I highly recommend checking the internal temperature with a thermometer to ensure doneness without overbaking.

Just for anyone who may be curious…I added half of a finely diced bell pepper and a few splashes of Worcestershire in the meatloaf mix. That’s it! For the glaze, I added a squirt of barbecue sauce and only did 1 Tbs of the brown sugar. Might do less sugar next time. Thank you so much for a great recipe to go off of!

    This recipe was delicious! I played around with it a little bit and did half of one onion instead of a full onion. Then, I took about an eighth of a head of green cabbage, chopped it up and sauteed in butter and worchestershire sauce until nicely cooked. I did not do your glaze, just ketchup on top with some bacon on top of that. I look forward to trying your glaze in the near future. Mine took an extra approximately 30 minutes to cook at 375 to get to the proper internal temp, but came out wonderful! Meat was nice and moist, but held together perfectly. Thanks for the recipe.

    Hands down the best meatloaf I’ve ever tasted! I used half organic ground beef and half organic ground bison. I just really like the richer flavor of bison. And I have a confession to make. I mixed up the proportions of ketchup for the meatloaf and the glaze. I was able to recover some of the ketchup from the meat before I’d mixed it in but I probably ended up with almost half a cup in the meatloaf itself. I didn’t cheat. I wasn’t trying to “improve” the recipe. I goofed🙂. But, as I said, best ever. That’s going to be my single variation to the recipe from now on. More ketchup in the meat mixture. Well, and the half bison part. I love you Valentina for this remarkable recipe❤️.

    I am going to make this tonight for my husband as he loves meat loaf. I am going to make a separate one as well with ground turkey. My questions are do you think it would cook the same?
    and Can I freeze the left overs?

      I haven’t really tried using ground turkey yet to advise. I saw someone commented this “I sub it for ground turkey, and I also add bell peppers to It all the time; it’s great” I hope that helps. You may also cover it tightly with plastic wrap and foil and freeze it. You can check the comments section at the bottom of the recipe and my freezing instructions for more tips.

    Can’t post Photo- All Gone!
    My family loved it! I soaked the panko crumbs in the milk while I prepped the rest of the ingredient. I only used 1 egg and used smoked fresh garlic. I came back on the web site to copy the recipe. It’s a keeper for sure.

    This was so good! I’ll always make this one. My personal tweaks: I didn’t use parchment paper (the pan was non stick). I drained the juice before adding the glaze and used it to make an awesome gravy (a little flour, stir til brown and add water). I also broiled it at the end for just a couple of minutes. I used a little extra meat, but kept the ingredients the same. My goal was to make 2 meals out of it, which we did, barely, lol.

      Hi John, I haven’t had that experience and it’s unusual that it would be raw after that long of a bake time. Make sure your oven is fully preheated and that it is heating correctly. You can check this with an in-oven thermometer.

    If I want to divide this into 4 parts and freeze them, should I cut the cooking time for each portion I cook by 3/4ths?

      Hi Don, I haven’t tested that so I’m not sure about specific baking times for that size. I highly recommend checking for doneness with a meat thermometer to make sure you’ve reached a safe internal temperature.

    This was a HUGE hit in our home! This is a keeper and will be our go-to recipe from now on!!! The only things I had to change were increasing the oven temp to 390 and cooking the meatloaf for 50 minutes. I then pulled the meatloaf out and drizzled the glaze, and put it back in for an additional 20 minutes. The meatloaf was at a perfect 165 degrees when it was said and done. Great recipe all around!

    It is “slap your Mama” good! I used ground pork and substituted a can of Rotel diced tomatoes and peppers every time it called for ketchup. The tomatoes on top perfectly compliments the loaf, and the first to go.

    How big is a serving size? It should say that when giving nutritional info but doesn’t. Please include.

      Hi Sunni, approximately eight full servings for adults. It really depends, but you can adjust the serving size by clicking on the serving size in the recipe card, you can slide it up or down to scale the recipe ingredient lists. I hope that helps!

    I didn’t care for the Italian seasoning in the meatloaf, it made it taste like Italian meatballs instead. It held together well, just wasn’t the flavor profile I prefer.

    I have tried this recipe several times, followed it to a “T” and each time I have to cook it for longer and it is total mush. No structure to it at all. Only sub I have to make is using gluten free Panko and even this time I doubled the Panko to help with the mush-iness of it and it was still a disaster. HELP!!

      Hi Laura, it’s hard to say what the culprit is, especially with substitutions. It may likely be the panko since I haven’t had this experience. I’m not sure of the brand you used, but one of my readers mentioned: “Schar Gluten Free Breadcrumbs” saying “it’s delicious!! I’m the only one gluten free in the family and no one else can tell a difference.”

        Gluten is a binding agent so it makes sense that it would turn out mushy when using gluten free crumbs. Adding a gluten free binding agent should help.

      What about chia seeds? I have used a couple tsp of ground chia seeds to replace the egg in a vegan muffin recipe before. It holds it together beautifully!
