Joey's Meatloaf

( #meatloaf, #recipes )


2 lbs lean ground beef
1/2 cup diced onions
2 cloves garlic minced
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 1/2 cups ketchup
2 tablespoons hot sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

NOTE: You should use a 9x5 Meatloaf pan if possible


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

1. Mix the ketchup, hot sauce, and apple cider vinegar in a bowl.
2. I like to mix all of my dry seasonings together ahead of time, so get the cheese, salt, pepper,thyme, paprika, garlic powder, bread crumbs, and cheese in a bowl and set aside.
3. Get the ground beef in a big bowl and add the egg, the Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 cup of the ketchup mix, the dry ingredients, the onions and the garlic. Mix it all up with you hand.
4. Put the mixture in the loaf pan and add the remaining ketchup on the top of the loaf.
5. Place in over for 60 minutes. TRICK: I add a pan of water under the loaf to keep it moist - total game changer.
6. Remove from over after 60 minutes and let rest for 10. Might want to drain off the excess fat/juices.
