Spicy Meatloaf

There is nothing better than down home comfort food! The epitome of comfort food for me is a well made meatloaf smothered in ketchup. This meatloaf is not quite the brick of ground beef your mama made, but a quick cooking and filling entree for any meal! This meatloaf has kick and zip. There are a lot seasonings listed here, and feel free to use what you have. For this recipe, I use prepared mustard as opposed to dry mustard. Honestly, what college student has a supply of dry mustard on hand at any given time? I certainly don't.

This is a recipe that makes 4 servings.

Spicy Meatloaf
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lg egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 lg white onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tbsp dried bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp hot sauce
  • 1/4 tsp mustard
  • 1/8 tsp tumeric
  • ketchup
  1. Preheat oven 400°
  2. Finely shop onion and mince garlic and add to a large mixing bowl. Add dry ingredients and gently toss.
  3. Add hot sauce and mustard, ground beef and egg. Add 1/4 c ketchup.
  4. Roll up your sleeves and hand mix all ingredients thoroughly.
  5. Shape mixture free form into a loaf roughly 9X4. Place on a greased baking pan.
  6. Bake for 20 min at 400°. At the end of the 20 min spread 2 tbsp ketchup over the top of the loaf. Bake for 7 more min or until done.
