This Classic Meatloaf Recipe is sure to become a favorite family recipe. This tender meatloaf with a simple, sweet glaze on top brings me back to my childhood!
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 1/2 cups diced onion
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- 2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, to taste
- Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
- 2 1/2 pounds meatloaf mix or ground beef
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
- 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
- For the Glaze:
- 1 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Add the butter and oil to a skillet. Once the butter is melted, add the onions and cook 7-8 minutes until softened.
- Add the tomato paste to the onions and stir to combine. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.
- Add the meatloaf mix to a large bowl along with the salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, breadcrumbs, eggs, parsley, garlic powder, basil and the cooled, cooked onions.
- Mix together until all the ingredients are incorporated but do not over mix, as this will make for a tough meatloaf.
- Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper, or spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. If using foil, make sure you spray that with cooking spray as well before you add the meatloaf.
- Add the meatloaf mixture to the baking sheet, forming into a loaf shape approximately 10″ long by 5″ wide.
- Stir the ingredients together for the glaze in a small bowl. Pour half of the glaze over the meatloaf and save half for later.
- Place the meatloaf in the oven for 35 minutes, remove from the oven to pour on more glaze, then return to the oven and bake another 20-25 minutes.
