Mmm ... meatloaf!

A few people have asked for this recipe, so I thought I'd put it on my blog. The sun-dried tomatoes give it a little tang and it always turns out really good. It goes great with mashed potatoes and some sort of fresh veggie.

  • 1.5-2 pounds ground beef, extra lean
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a skillet heat up 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add onions and garlic. Saute until onions are translucent. In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, bread crumbs, tomatoes, egg, oregano, basil, salt and pepper. Add onions and garlic and mix well. Grease loaf pan with olive oil and press mixture into pan. Cover lightly with aluminum foil. Bake 60-70 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before slicing.


  1. Yum, I love meatloaf. But I use mustard, ketchup and onion soup mix. I believe in cooking EZ. :)

  2. This one is pretty easy, Kim. Rick used to make meatloaf with a ketchup/BBQ sauce topping. That was really good too. This one is his favorite now. I have a bunch of recipes for meatloaf in the crock-pot, but he won't let me try them. LOL!

  3. YUM YUM, can't wait to try it Rena, thanks!


  4. mmmm. that potato looks inviting too!

  5. I LOVE meatloaf. I'll have to try it.

  6. Kim left a comment about meatloaf on my blog this morning, and now this! That's it, I know what's for dinner tonight :)

  7. Sounds cool Rena... I will print it off and give it to Vince. (I have given up on the idea of cooking... if I start, he would just expect me to keep it up!) Better to plead overall ignorance I think!

  8. Yum! Sound delicious. My husband calls it comfort food.
