Easy, quick and simple classic meatloaf recipe that makes amazing leftover meatloaf sandwiches.
- 3 slices Bread
- ½ cups Milk
- 2 Eggs, beaten
- ½ cups Parmesan cheese
- 1 tbsp Dried parsley flakes
- ¼ teaspoons seasoned salt
- ¼ teaspoons Salt
- ¼ teaspoons Pepper
- 1 pound Ground beef
- ¾ cups Ketchup
- ¼ cups brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon Dry mustard
- 3 dashes Hot sauce, optional
In a large bowl, pour the milk over the slices of bread and let soak for a few minutes. Then stir (or use your hands) to break up the bread (it should basically fall apart).
Add eggs, parmesan, parsley flakes, seasoned salt, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
Add the ground beef and mix (or use your hands).
Shape the beef mixture into a loaf shape and place it on a baking sheet or broiler pan. I use a broiler pan so the grease can drain off while cooking the meatloaf. I also make sure to line the bottom part (the part without the holes) of the broiler pan with aluminum foil for easy cleaning.
In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the sauce: ketchup, brown sugar, dry mustard and hot sauce.
Pour half of the sauce over the top of the meatloaf.
Bake the meatloaf at 350°F for 45 minutes.
Pour the rest of the sauce over the bread and bake for another 15 minutes.
Slice and serve!
Note: leftovers are amazing! I cut a piece of the meatloaf in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds, maybe a minute for a larger piece. Toast two slices of bread and place the meatloaf in between for a delicious sandwich the next day!
