Meatloaf is one of my favorite comfort foods! My family always fight over the last slice of meatloaf. Back in the day, you wouldn’t find me fighting over meatloaf because I pretty much hated it. I grew tired of trying dry or bland meatloaf recipes. I eventually worked on making my own meatloaf. If you don’t like meatloaf I bet you’ll love this recipe.

Meatloaf isn’t rocket science. Don’t skimp on seasonings and use a generous amount of sauteed onions. The cooked onions made this meatloaf super delicious. A lot of recipes use milk but I don’t use milk. I only use beef broth. It works, trust me. The beef broth provides so much flavor.

"Yasss" may be the only word you utter after your chomp down and savor the bursting flavors of this delicious classic, tender, and moist meatloaf. 

Ingredients
Meatloaf
  • 2 lb ground beef Don't use very lean ground beef
  • 4 slices of fresh bread food processed
  • 1/3 cup beef broth I used Better Than Bouillon Beef Base
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • pinch ground thyme
  • 2 pinches dry parsley
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 cups red onion diced
  • salt and pepper for taste see notes *A

Brown Sugar Ketchup
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 4-5 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp pepper (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Cover the entire top and sides of a baking sheet with heavy-duty aluminum foil. 
  2. Add the vegetable oil to a medium skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot enough add the onions and cook until softened about 6-8 minutes. A minute before the onions are done, add the garlic. Cook until fragrant (about 30 seconds).  Remove the onions and garlic from the skillet and let it cool for about 5 minutes. 
  3. To a small bowl add the fresh breadcrumbs, eggs, Worcestershire sauce and beef broth. Mix gently. Let the breadcrumbs soak for 5 minutes. 
  4. Get a bowl big enough for the ground beef and breadcrumb mixture. Add the ground beef to the bowl with all the seasonings, salt and pepper. Add the breadcrumb mixture, onions and garlic and gently mix. I used plastic gloves to mix. You can use a fork if you like.  Do not mash or overdo with mixing or the beef may get tough. 
  5. Place the beef on the baking sheet lined with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Shape the beef into a loaf. Pour half of the brown sugar ketchup over the meatloaf. With the basting brush, brush the ketchup all over the top and side of the meatloaf. 
  6. Reserve half of the ketchup. You will add the rest of the ketchup once the meatloaf is done. 
  7. Place the meatloaf in the oven.  Add another baking sheet on the lower shelf right underneath the meatloaf. Fill it with water. This will help keep the meatloaf moist. 
  8. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until the temperature on your meat thermometer reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Add the rest of the ketchup and serve with mashed potatoes and vegetables. 

Recipe Notes
Do not overmanipulate the ground beef. Gently mix the ground beef into the seasonings and breadcrumb mixture. 

Storage:  refrigerate meatloaf in airtight containers or wrap tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or plastic wrap for 3-4 days. 
Note A: I always reach for Better than Bouillon Beef Base whenever I need to use beef broth. It's just like homemade broth and it packs lots of flavors. It also lasts longer than the boxed or canned broth. The beef base is made from roasted beef & concentrated beef stock You can find the low sodium beef here. Be careful when using BTB because it has salt so just be mindful when you add more salt to the beef mixture.

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
