    I don't have a meatloaf recipe, but I have always liked my mom's meatloaf. Same goes for my wife, she is a fan of her mothers meatloaf. So she is making it tomorrow night and we couldn't figure out which mothers recipe to get.

    I told her I'd fix it by coming here and getting some recipes from you guys and we'd try one of them.

    So lets hear some meatloaf recipes.

    I got this recipe off of Men's Health and am actually having it tonight. It's very good.

    1/2 lb ground sirloin
    1/2 lb ground turkey breast
    2 eggs
    1 cup whole-wheat crackers, crushed
    3/4 cup diced onion
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    1/2 tsp dried oregano
    1/2 cup barbecue sauce, plus extra

    1. Mix the beef and turkey until well blended. Add the eggs. Mix in the remaining ingredients, including the half cup of barbecue sauce, until well blended.

    2. Form the meat mixture into a loaf shape and place it on a broiler pan. Coat it with the extra barbecue sauce.

    3. Cook at 350°F for 1 hour. Double-check the internal temperature with a meat thermometer; it should read 160°F. Makes 4 servings

    Alton brown is a good source



    Ingredients
    6 ounces garlic-flavored croutons
    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/2 onion, roughly chopped
    1 carrot, peeled and broken
    3 whole cloves garlic
    1/2 red bell pepper
    18 ounces ground chuck
    18 ounces ground sirloin
    1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 egg
    For the glaze:
    1/2 cup catsup
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    Dash Worcestershire sauce
    Dash hot pepper sauce
    1 tablespoon honey
    Directions
    Heat oven to 325 degrees F.

    In a food processor bowl, combine croutons, black pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and thyme. Pulse until the mixture is of a fine texture. Place this mixture into a large bowl. Combine the onion, carrot, garlic, and red pepper in the food processor bowl. Pulse until the mixture is finely chopped, but not pureed. Combine the vegetable mixture, ground sirloin, and ground chuck with the bread crumb mixture. Season the meat mixture with the kosher salt. Add the egg and combine thoroughly, but avoid squeezing the meat.



    (I like to add 1/2 cup of chopped jalapenos.)

    Pack this mixture into a 10-inch loaf pan to mold the shape of the meatloaf. Onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, turn the meatloaf out of the pan onto the center of the tray. Insert a temperature probe at a 45 degree angle into the top of the meatloaf. Avoid touching the bottom of the tray with the probe. Set the probe for 155 degrees.

    Combine the catsup, cumin, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce and honey. Brush the glaze onto the meatloaf after it has been cooking for about 10 minutes.

    <------ Likes meatloaf. :cow:


    Here's my tip.

    The cold meat on my hands it makes them hurt, a lot.
    I use the bread hook on my mixer to mix up the meat and spices. Works for me and my hands don't hurt after wards.

    A classic: Quaker Oats Prize Winning Meatloaf. Nothing fancy, a basic moist meatloaf. The use of oats in lieu of bread is the major variation. I usually use this as a starting point, adding bell peppers, mushrooms, Siracha sauce, etc.

    Use a standard meatloaf recipe and layer the top with bacon, BBQ sauce and extra brown sugar.

    Meatloaf is a touchy subject for me right now lol.
    Went to Golden Corral yesterday, I always get meatloaf with taters and macaroni & cheese for my first plate. They were out so I walked around awhile, got some roast. Come back and they'd refilled it.

    No ketchup on top. It was covered in gravy. It was like salsbury meatloaf. I was pissed.

    Not much to meatloaf to make it good, smoke it if you want it great. Just remember a couple eggs and breadcrumbs, then season and add what you like, I do it all the time, but smoke it up. It's almost idiotproof.
