@vanilla44:  Eww, I’ve never heard that ketchup should be on meatloaf.. Ick! I guess we don’t do it like that where I’m from. I googled a few recipes, but most of them have ketchup..I really can’t recommend any recipes for this “meatloaf” .. just shocked at the ketchup thing. Good luck with the cooking!

I am a fellow ketchup hater! I love BBQ sauce though so I normally glaze the meatloaf with a combination of BBQ, mustard, brown sugar, and worchestershire sauce.

I do mine with BBQ sauce too–and Darling Husband who was vehemently against the no-ketchup thing says it’s better than his mother’s!

I think that means I win.

Oh! And the recipe: 2 pounds ground beef (I use turkey to be healthy), 2 eggs, chopped onion, chopped fresh parsley, italian bread crumbs, and salt and pepper.

I also hate ketchup.  I usually take recipes and replace the ketchup with Thai Sweet Chili sauce.  My husband loves it, I love it.  I never make it any other way.

Alton Brown’s recipe is AMAZING! It does call for ketchup.. BUT, I am also a ketchup hater and loved it. When I was younger, someone forced fed me SPOONFULS of ketchup so now even the smell of it will make me gag.

Anyway- I decided to attempt this recipe but had BBQ sauce as a backup. Well, once I added the honey, hot sauce, worcestershire, & seasonsings.. I could not taste it AT all. But, even if you decide another sauce.. the meatloaf itself is so good!!

you could easily sub tomato paste with a little water for the ketchup, too.

Use a box of stove top stuffing and a 1/4 cup hot water to moisten with some shredded cheese and partially cooked onions.Another method is onion soup mix and eggs with ground beef. I don’t follow  an actual recipe I just put things in based on texture.

The stove top stuffing one is pretty much 1/4 cup hot water, a pound of ground beef one box of stove top, onions and shredded cheese to taste. put the stove top in a bowl and add the hot water, stir until just moist, then add the ground beef, onions and cheese. cook at 350 for about 30 minutes to and hour, (until temp has reached 170 for the meatloaf). The last 10 minutes of cooking spread on your fave bbq sauce on top so it caramelizes. Simply and tasty.

instead of ketchup on top, what about beef or brown gravy? that would give it some great flavor and moisture.
