Soulful Meatloaf Magic: A Homely Delight

Welcome to my kitchen, where every recipe holds a story and a promise of comfort. Today, I’m sharing a timeless classic that has graced countless family tables – my perfected meatloaf recipe.

Ingredients Overview:

  • 1-2 pounds of ground meat (your choice, beef, turkey, or a blend)
  • 1/3 cup of ketchup
  • 2 eggs
  • Onion and green pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 package of Kraft Stove Top stuffing (herb flavor, dry)

Step-by-Step Cooking Instructions:


  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C). Grease one to two loaf pans, depending on the size you prefer.

1. Mixing the Ingredients: 2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground meat, ketchup, eggs, chopped onion, chopped green pepper, and the dry herb stuffing mix. Mix gently but thoroughly until all ingredients are evenly distributed.

2. Shaping the Loaves: 3. Transfer the mixture into the prepared loaf pans, shaping them into neat loaves. If desired, spread a little extra ketchup on top for a tangy glaze.

3. Baking: 4. Place the loaf pans in the preheated oven and bake for about 1 hour, or until the meatloaf is cooked through and golden brown on top.

4. Resting and Serving: 5. Allow the meatloaf to rest for a few minutes before slicing. Serve slices warm, accompanied by your favorite sides.

Cooking Tips for Culinary Perfection:

1. Choose Your Ground Meat Wisely: For a juicier meatloaf, opt for ground beef with a slightly higher fat content, or mix lean ground beef with ground pork for a balance of flavor and moisture.

2. Don’t Overmix: Handle the meat mixture gently to avoid a dense texture. Overmixing can result in a tough meatloaf.

3. Let it Rest: Allowing the meatloaf to rest after baking allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring a moist and tender result when sliced.

Storage and Reheating Tips:


  • Store any leftover meatloaf in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.


  • To reheat, slice the meatloaf and place it on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes, or until heated through. Alternatively, you can reheat slices in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 10-15 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Can I use different flavors of stuffing mix? A: Absolutely! Feel free to experiment with different flavors of stuffing mix to customize the taste of your meatloaf. Just keep in mind that the seasoning in the stuffing mix will affect the overall flavor of the dish.

Q: Can I substitute the ketchup with another sauce? A: Yes, you can substitute the ketchup with barbecue sauce, tomato sauce, or even salsa for a unique twist on the classic recipe. Adjust the quantity according to your taste preferences.

Q: How can I prevent the meatloaf from sticking to the pan? A: Greasing the loaf pan generously before adding the meat mixture will help prevent sticking. You can also line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper for added insurance.

With these simple steps and tips, you’re well on your way to creating a meatloaf masterpiece that will warm hearts and fill bellies with every savory bite. Enjoy the soulful magic of homemade comfort food
