How to Cook a Perfect Meatloaf

Meatloaf has become a staple in many homes because it is simple to cook and tastes delicious. Plus, because one meatloaf serves so many people, you can either feed a lot of people at once or have leftovers for the next few days. If you want to know how to make the perfect meatloaf at your home, follow this recipe. 
This takes about an hour and a half to make and serves 12 people.


  • 1 Tbs butter
  • ¼ cup minced onions
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ tsp pepper
  • 2lbs ground beef
  • 3 slices bread, toasted and crumbled
  • 1 egg
  • 3 ½ tbs sour cream
  • 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 3 tbs ketchup


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • In a large bowl, mix together the beef, crumbled bread, onions, egg, sour cream and half the can of tomato sauce, gradually stirring in the milk
  • Transfer the mixture into a 5x9-inch pan and form it into a loaf
  • Bake it in the oven for 40 minutes
  • Remove the meatloaf from the oven, mix the remaining tomato sauce and ketchup together and then pour that mixture over the top of the meatloaf
  • Bake for 10 more minutes, take it out and let it cool, enjoy
