Meatloaf Recipe, That Will Make You Smack Your Mama!!

No judgement about Katie Joel and her marriage situation!! I don’t know if she cheated on old ass Billy Joel or what, but what I do know is-her cook book is DA-BOMB!! I have made this meatloaf countless times and it is a huge hit.  I can honestly say its tasty, easy to make, and you will get some good lovin from your loved one after the meal is over.  Deets are below:



1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 medium, yellow onion, diced (about 3/4 cup)

1 garlic clove, minced

1 medium red pepper, finely diced (about 1 cup)

1 bay leaf

2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme

2 pounds lean ground beef

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

3/4 cup dry bread crumbs

1 cup ketchup

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Preheat the oven 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray lightly with oil.

Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Saute the onions, garlic, and bay leaf until the onions are tender, about 3 minutes. Add the red pepper and cook until the red pepper is tender, about 5 minutes more. Stir in the parsley and thyme and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove pan from the heat and let the onion mixture cool. Discard the bay leaf.

In a large bowl, combine the beef, eggs, breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup of the ketchup, the Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and the cooled vegetables. Use your hands to mix everything together.

Transfer the mixture to the center of the baking sheet and form into a “loaf.” Coat the meatloaf with the remaining 1/2 cup ketchup.

Bake for 1 to 11/2 hours (depending on the shape of your loaf), until the meatloaf is firm. Let set for about 5 minutes before slicing.
