Cooking Club: Fantastic Meatloaf

Happy Saturday! We just got back from Lucas' first soccer game, they lost-by a lot- but he had fun and almost scored a goal. But we forgot his ball at the field, they were using it for the game ball. Guess I need more practice at this whole soccer mom thing.

Today's recipe is one that Melidee submitted and the picture is from the lovely and talented Rachel once again.

Fantastic Meatloaf
by Chef Bryan Woolley, Channel 2 News Chef

1 pound ground beef
1 pound Italian sausage
1 medium size onion
3 garlic cloves minced
2 cups Parmesan cheese, grated
¼ cup Worchestershire sauce
1 cup bread crumbs
3 eggs
¾ cup ketchup

1 glass bread pan (about 9x5)

1. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, Italian sausage, onion, garlic, parmesan cheese, Worchestershire sauce, bread crumbs and eggs. Mix ingredients all together.
2. Place meat mixture into a glass bread pan.
3. Spread ketchup over top of meatloaf.
4. Take a cooling rack and place it inside of a baking sheet (jelly roll type) and place the prepared meatloaf on top of the rack.
5. Place in a 350 degree oven for about 1 hour or until done. (Internal temperature should be at least 160 degree’s.)
6. Serve with a fresh tomato relish, sautéed garden vegetables and mashed potatoes. ENJOY!

Melidee-I heard him say on the news that if you cook it in an aluminum, throw-away pan, you can poke holes in the bottom and all the grease runs out into the jelly roll pan and keeps your meatloaf from swimming in grease. He has a fabulous blog of recipes. Just type in his name and take a look!


  1. I LOOOOVE new recipes! This one sounds yummy!

  2. worcestershire?? Yum! I bet this is good!

  3. Ooh YUM! I've been wanting to make meatloaf for awhile ~ gotta try this! My grandma gave me a meatloaf pan for Christmas. It looks like a loaf pan sitting in a larger loaf pan & the first one has holes. I haven't used it yet & am excited to try it out! :)

  4. This is so timely as Meatloaf is a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice.
