This is an easy meatloaf recipe that I have loved for years. My grandmother made this so many times and it is one of my favorite recipes for meatloaf. I especially like the taste the Heinz 57 gives to the meatloaf and the sauce this recipe uses.
This is another recipe that the picky eaters in the family love to have. That means we eat it regularly. I also have doubled this recipe to make two. I bake them both and then freeze the second one without the sauce. When I want to use it for a quick meal during the week, I take it out of the freezer and let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight. I then will make the sauce on the stove and cook it for a bit and spoon over the re-heated meatloaf slices. It works really well and I usually like to keep one meatloaf in the freezer at all times just in case!
To start, we mix all our ingredients together ensuring it is mixed well. I often add green bell peppers to my meatloaf, but the recipe doesn’t call for them. You can add some in if you like.
Shape your meat mixture in a loaf pan to form a nice meatloaf.
Place in the oven to bake. When I pull my meatloaf out to pour the sauce on it, I will usually drain any grease and dab with a few paper towels.
Place the meatloaf back in the oven for the remaining 15 minutes so the sauce cooks and warms. Slice and serve! This also works great for left overs the next day!
