Best Meatloaf Ever

by 247tasty

This is a traditional recipe for a classic meatloaf. As we know, meatloaves are a quintessential American dinner. Every American family has their own meatloaf recipe. But this recipe by far is what I kept all this time. It’s easy to make, meatloaf holds together, and this has the best flavor! Delicious! My husband and my kids love it so much. If there is Taco Tuesday, we have Meatloaf Thursday. LMAO. My kids invented it for fun and just to have an excuse to ask me to cook meatloaf for dinner twice in a week! And whenever their friends are coming over (or for a sleep over) they want meatloaf for dinner too! Who can blame them, this meatloaf is indeed scrumptious! For most part, I can even hear them whispering “This is the best meatloaf” and that put a smile on my face every time. Kids, they really know how to appreciate the little things and great food.


1 egg
1/2 pounds of ground beef
14 ounce, can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers
1 sleeve of buttery round crackers, crushed
1 teaspoon onion flakes + 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder + 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt

How to make Best Meatloaf Ever

Step 1: Prepare the oven by preheating it to 375 degrees F.

Step 2: In a mixing bowl, beat the egg, add the ground beef, crushed crackers, and diced tomatoes. Then, season with onion flakes, garlic powder, pepper, and salt. Mix well until incorporated.

Step 3: Carefully pour the beef mixture into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.

Step 4: Place the uncooked meatloaf inside the preheated oven and bake over 375 degrees F for about an hour until the beef is no longer pink. Or you can use an instant-read thermometer (if available) and insert it in the middle. Once it reads 160 degrees F then you’re done. Serve and enjoy!
