Classic Meatloaf image

Good meatloaf is about as comforting as comfort food gets. Thankfully, meatloaf doesn't have to be complex to be good. It just needs to be tender (from breadcrumbs soaked in milk and gentle handling) and flavorful (from onion, garlic, and ketchup).

This is an American classic and is made here with a combination of beef and pork mince. Delicious served with this wedge salad.

Provided by The Hairy Bikers

Categories     Main course

Yield Serves 8-10

Number Of Ingredients 22

2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 celery sticks, finely chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
500g/1lb 2oz beef mince
750g/1lb 10oz pork mince
50g/1¾oz smoked bacon, finely chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp mustard
100g/3½oz breadcrumbs
50ml/2fl oz double cream
1 free-range egg
10 rashers streaky bacon
salt and freshly ground black pepper
50g/1¾oz tomato ketchup
1 tbsp mustard
1 tbsp maple syrup (or soft brown sugar)
1 tsp smoked garlic powder
1 tbsp cider vinegar


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6.
  • For the meatloaf, heat the oil in a sauté pan and add the onion, celery and carrot. Fry until the onion is translucent and all the vegetables are softened. Turn up the heat and cook for a few more minutes until the onions are slightly caramelised. Add the garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
  • Put the mince and bacon in a large bowl and add the herbs, garlic powder, mustard and breadcrumbs. Add the vegetables, pour in the double cream and break in the egg. Season well with salt and pepper. Mix everything together thoroughly, making sure especially that the beef and pork are well combined.
  • Take a large baking tray and mould the meatloaf mixture into a large loaf shape on the tray. The dimensions should be roughly those of a large loaf tin (30x12cm/12x4½in).
  • Cut the bacon rashers in half, then stretch out with the flat of a knife. You should find they are just long enough to drape over the sides and top of the meatloaf. Arrange these over the meatloaf in a criss cross pattern and tuck under any excess bacon at the sides. The whole loaf should be covered except for the two ends.
  • For the glaze, place all of the ingredients into a small saucepan and whisk over a low heat until well combined (and any sugar is dissolved if using). Brush the whole meatloaf generously with most of the glaze. Cook in the oven for 30 minutes, then remove and brush with the glaze again. Bake for a further 25-30 minutes until cooked through. The bacon should be crisp and glossy and the meatloaf should be cooked through and piping hot in the middle.

  • Skillet Candied Sweet Potatoes. An apple cider glaze gives these skillet candied sweet potatoes some serious autumn flare for a seasonal dinner that will hit the spot.
  • Baked Macaroni and Cheese. Creamy baked macaroni and cheese will turn dinner into a feast. Make it gluten free by using a different pasta and omitting the breadcrumbs, if you have dietary restrictions.
  • Creamed Peas With Mushrooms and Onions. Frozen green peas are often a childhood side to meatloaf. Without too much effort beyond defrosting a bag of peas, you can take it to another level with creamed peas, mushrooms, and onions that have far more flavor and an indulgent texture.
  • Mashed Cauliflower and Leeks. Mashed cauliflower makes a great, lower-carb substitute for potatoes. Adding leeks gives them an even more buttery, earthy flavor while garlic lends a little kick.
  • Honey Glazed Baby Carrots. The Thanksgiving table would be incomplete without honey glazed carrots, but they're simple enough to make on weeknights, too.
  • Slow Cooker Carnival Squash. Pretty carnival squash has a lovely sweetness that complements the umami of meatloaf wonderfully. Make it in the slow cooker to free up oven space for the main event or bake it up alongside.
  • Lemon Garlic Broccoli. Add a little green to your diet with this super-simple broccoli side. Enhance it with lemon juice, garlic, shallots, and red pepper flakes to give the basic crucifer more zip.
  • Toasted Garlic Bread. It's so easy to make crisp, fragrant, toasted garlic bread. Use a French or Italian loaf for this side dish or appetizer that goes great with any hearty meal including tomato sauce, from meatloaf to spaghetti dinners.
  • Cheddar Cheese Scalloped Potatoes. Cheesy, hearty, and comforting cheddar scalloped potatoes will really hit the spot. Add some chopped ham or bacon for a meatier side or mix up the cheeses for a different flavor.

Brush the meat loaf with 3 tablespoons of the ketchup mixture. Place the bacon width-wise over the top of the meat loaf and cover with remaining glaze. Bake for 15 minutes, …
