This Meatloaf is the Best

Meatloaf Recipe

Of all my recipes, this meatloaf gets the most rave reviews. I love It! I’ve been making this healthy recipe for years the exact same way and I can never decide if I like it better with my buttermilk mashed potatoes or the next day in a sandwich with a little mustard on a good sourdough bread. It’s hard to mess up meat loaf. Just mix everything up and put it in the oven.

A lot of recipes use a combination of ground beef, pork, and veal but I like to keep it simple and I use the very leanest beef I can find. But it still contains fat so the reason I roast my meatloaf on a baking sheet is to allow any excess fat to flow away from the meat – no one needs that extra saturated fat. So don’t use a loaf pan.

Another benefit of using a baking sheet is… well, there are two: one, is there’s no cleanup because you line it with foil, and second, it browns on all sides! So it’s beautiful, too. I’m pretty sure this “best ever” meatloaf recipe will become a regular part of your own healthy foods and meals.  Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

    Hi Jenny:
    Just wanted you to know, I love,love, love your meatloaf. Have been trying all kinds of things to get the right one and yours fits the bill. I do add a glaze because otherwise my hubby drowns meatloaf in ketchup. I use one can of tomato sauce and add enough brown sugar to get the flavor we like and glaze it and then use the remainder to cover it when serving. It is the only real change I made and it was good without that addition. It is now my go to meatloaf all the time. Thanks for sharing your great recipe.

    This recipe rocks! I’ve made this meatloaf several times, and am planning to make it again tonight. I’ve never been a fan of the ‘over ketchupped’ meatloafs. This one is great! Thanks, Jenny!!
