Junior year in college, one of my buddies used to make a great meatloaf. I think I had it a couple times and bugged him for the recipe. And after 2 years, I finally was able to get the recipe from the guy! And it was worth it!

Now I make this maybe once a month or once every other month these days, it's pretty easy to put together, then throw it in the oven for about an hour and you're done! Definitely my kind of recipe :)

I made this with some roasted potatoes (Will post another time) from a recipe on Recipezaar


2.5-3 pounds ground beef (93% lean)
2 large eggs, beaten
1 cup breadcrumbs, plain
2 teaspoons thyme, fresh
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 cup scallions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 slice of bread
1 tablespoon of worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar, dark

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
-Saute onion and scallions in olive oil until soft. Add garlic and cook for about a minute. Add the first portion of ketchup and brown sugar and heat until sugar melts. Set aside to cool.
-Mix together the eggs, breadcrumbs, slice of bread, thyme, peppers, garlic powder and parsley in a large bowl. Add beef and onion mixture and hand mix until you get a good distribution of ingredients.
-Spray a baking dish with some cooking spray, and add the meatloaf.
-Mix the rest of the sauce (ketchup and brown sugar) and spoon over top.
-Bake for about an hour at 350 degrees Fahrenheit
