Marvelous Meatloaf – it’s the ultimate comfort food and Janelle from Comfy In The Kitchen has the perfect recipe for us:
There are so many delicious recipes for meatloaf…. I would like to share with you my family recipe that I have made time and time again. This recipe was given to me at my bridal shower 8 1/2 years ago by my cousin Wendy…I have been making it ever since. My entire family eats this UP! There is a secret ingredient in it that makes it so good (you would never guess it). But, if I have not disappointed you yet…you simply must give this recipe a try (trust me?)…it is a winning recipe for sure! ENJOY!!! 
Make the glaze by mixing in a medium bowl: ketchup, brown sugar, lemon juice and prepared mustard- set aside
In a large bowl combine ground beef, bread crumbs, chopped onion, 1 egg, *lemon juice, and 1/3 cup of the glaze mixture
Shape into a loaf pan (or you may shape into a loaf and place in a 9×13), bake 1 hour in a 350 oven- pour off fat

Add the glaze and bake an additional 15 mins or until done.

  1. I’ve been searching for a good recipe for ages. Thank goodness I finally found one. Appreciate it so much. Can’t wait to try it. Many thanks, Leah

  2. I absolutely love meatloaf. This has been something that I make regularly now. My husband told me that his grandma put ketchup on top. I thought yuck! Now that I see it prepared THIS way, I’m guessing she probably put more than ketchup on hers too. I use bbq sauce and brown sugar. Yum!!!

  3. You can swtch out the breadcrumbs for oatmeal. I have done this a few times and you
    can’t even tell and plus it is healthier!i

  4. I am really interested in the ?potato? recipe that is servedwith the meatloaf, now those look delicious!!!
    When you ladies say oatmeal, you are talking about 1 minute quick oats or the regular kind?

  5. Enjoy ladies…this is one great recipe that I have made over and over for years. In fact, I’m making it this week! Hi Sarah…There is plenty of salt in the ketchup base and flavor in the onion in the meat for my personal taste. However, you are always welcome to add salt and pepper to your liking with any recipe. If you try it and want to add salt and pepper…absolutely do so 🙂

  6. I am little confused on the lemon juice part???? It says 3T lemon juice total, so do 2T go into the meatloaf itself & 1T in the glaze??? Can’t wait to make this!!!

  7. Don’t have money to buy a house? Do not worry, because this is real to get the business loans to solve such problems. Thence get a consolidation loan to buy everything you need.
