Meatloaf isn’t something we normally see here in the UK, but across the pond it’s very popular! If you fancy trying something new this week, sink your teeth into this easy meatloaf recipe and whip up a new weeknight favourite.


  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 500g beef mince
  • 1 egg
  • 75g breadcrumbs
  • 75ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp parsley (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree

Glaze (Optional)

  • 125ml tomato ketchup
  • 1 tsp hot sauce


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 170C. In a mixing bowl, combine all the meatloaf ingredients except the oil. Mix together using your fingers  and shape into a loaf. Place on a baking tray greased with olive oil. Bake for 45 minutes.
  2. To make the optional glaze, while the meatloaf bakes, mix ketchup and hot sauce. After 45 minutes, brush the glaze over the top of the meatloaf. Return to the over for 15-20 minutes or until the loaf is cooked through.
