Serves: 4
For the Meatloaf:
  • 1½ lbs./500g ground beef
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ¾ cup/180ml milk
  • ⅔ cup bread crumbs
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
For the Glaze:
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350℉/175℃.
  2. In a bowl combine all ingredients for the meatloaf and mix well. Lightly pat mixture into a greased loaf pan.
  3. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 50-60 minutes or until internal temperature is at 160℉. While meatloaf is baking combine ingredients for the glaze.
  4. Once meatloaf is to temperature or the juices run clear, remove from the oven and spoon or drain off the fat.
  5. Spread the glaze over the meat, return to oven and bake for about 10 minutes more.
  6. Allow meatloaf to stand for 10 minutes before serving.
If you've got picky eaters at home, then add some grated carrot or zucchini to the meat, so they get their veggies without even knowing it.
