This basic meatloaf recipe with bread crumbs is made with spices, herbs, cream and eggs. It is moist in the inside with a tasty crust on top.
Meatloaf can be dry if you are not careful. This is why we are going to add the cream and eggs. Make sure not to over handle the meat so it does not get tough.
I do not use a mold when I make meatloaf. I simply form the loaf on the baking pan. We will be glazing it with ketchup two times. This will allow the loaf to form a nice crust. You can substitute the ketchup with barbecue sauce if you would like.
Here’s what you are going to need for this delicious basic meatloaf recipe with bread crumbs:
2 pounds ground beef
6 scallions, white, light green and green parts chopped
½ cup finely chopped white onion
1/8 cup mustard
1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
1 tablespoon dried oregano leaves
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
½ cup heavy or sour cream
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt & Pepper
1/2 cup Ketchup
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Place the ground beef in a large bowl. Add all the ingredients and mix very well. Get rid of all the
pieces of red meat.
In a baking pan, form a loaf with the meat. Glaze it with ketchup and place in the oven for 50 to 60 minutes.
Remove the meatloaf from the oven and glaze with another layer of ketchup. Return to the oven and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes, until you have a nice crust.
Remove loaf to a cutting board and allow sitting for 10 minutes. Cut into slices and serve with potatoes and a steamed vegetable.
