Classic Meatloaf Recipe – Mantitlement (Video)

I love a good meatloaf, so when I came across this recipe from Dan over at Mantitlement, it sounded like something I would like to try. You can learn more about Dan here.

I really love their blog the way is set up, it’s very user friendly. They have tons of really great recipes, and they even have a section for date night recipes! You definitely should check it out.

This meatloaf was outstanding! I was a little hesitant with the glaze, as I have never used sweet chili sauce for a meatloaf before, but I’m so glad I followed this recipe to the letter. The glaze really made the meatloaf, which was already perfect, even more delicious. Let’s jump right in!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion (1 1/2 cups diced)
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, to taste
  • Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 1/2 pounds meatloaf mix or ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Chop onion to make 1 ½ cups diced. Chop flat parsley to make ¼ cup. Measure out all other ingredients. 

Add one tablespoon EACH butter and olive oil to skillet over medium heat until butter is melted.  Add onion and cook until softened, about 5-7 minutes.

Stir in tomato paste, and remove from heat.  Let cool.

For the meatloaf, you can use ground beef only OR a combination/meatloaf mix.  I used 1 pound ground beef, ¾ pound EACH ground pork and ground veal.  To the meat, add salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, breadcrumbs, eggs, parsley, garlic powder, basil and the cooled tomato-onion mixture.

Mix together JUST until everything is incorporated.

Since I am using a Pampered Chef stoneware loaf pan, I do not need to use foil or grease my pan.  Just throw it in there!  If you are using something else, you may use foil in your pan or grease it as needed. 

MAKE THE GLAZE:

Combine all of the glaze ingredients together, and mix well.  Brush HALF of the glaze over the loaf.

Bake in the oven for 35 minutes, then pull pan out to brush on the rest of the glaze.  Bake an additional 20-25 minutes, or until fully cooked to 160⁰ F.

That’s it! This recipe was super easy to put together, and it also freezes really well. Also, as you can see above, the meatloaf did not stick at ALL to my stone. Love it!! We were just two of us at home that night, so I let the meatloaf cool down, and sliced the rest. We went back to have the leftovers and it was really easy to reheat and tasted just as good, if not even better, than when it came right out of the oven. Please let me know if you give this a try!
