Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Fresh herbs (such as parsley or thyme), chopped

Instructions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, chopped onion, minced garlic, egg, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, salt, black pepper, and those lovely fresh herbs. Mix it all up with your hands until well combined. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty!
  2. When the mixture is thoroughly mixed, shape it into a loaf and place it in a greased baking dish. Pro tip: if you’re feeling creative, you can even shape it into a fun design like a heart or a football!
  3. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C), and pop the meatloaf in. Bake it for about 45 minutes to an hour, or until it’s nicely browned and cooked through. While it’s baking, the aroma will fill your kitchen, teasing your taste buds with anticipation.
  4. Once the meatloaf is done, remove it from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing. This allows the flavors to settle and the juices to redistribute, ensuring a moist and tender meatloaf.
  5. Serve it up alongside some mashed potatoes, roasted veggies, or a fresh salad. The choice is yours! Oh, and don’t forget a generous drizzle of ketchup on top for that classic touch.
