Melt-in-Your-Mouth Meatloaf Recipe

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here.

One of my favorite (and frugal!) comfort foods is meatloaf. I think I even prefer it the next day over fresh from the oven, but this recipe is guaranteed to melt in your mouth anytime.


  • 1 lb hamburger meat (we prefer grassfed beef)
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 2 eggs
  • 5-6 slices of bread or 1 1/2-2 cups bread crumbs
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 tsp sage
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • a bit of mustard

For the sauce:

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • a bit of mustard


  1. Mix ingredients and add to a loaf pan (I like my cast iron loaf pan).
  2. Top meatloaf with sauce.
  3. Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 30 minutes to 1 hour and 45 minutes, depending on your oven.

Serve it up next to your favorite homemade bread and mashed potatoes!
