Meatloaf with Roasted Tomatoes

December 27, 2013

I adapted this recipe from Real Simple for a simple and comforting dinner recently. It is yummy and makes really good leftovers (if you can save some for later!).

You will need:

  • 3/4 c ketchup
  • 2 T Dijon mustard
  • 4 T dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 c old-fashioned  oats
  • 1/4 c milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 medium onion, grated
  • 2 t Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 t dried thyme
  • 1 T oregano
  • 1/2 t pepper
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 lb ground pork
  • 1/2 lb ground veal
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes

Then you will…

  1. Heat oven to 370 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Whisk together 1/2 cup of the ketchup, the mustard and the brown sugar in a small bowl; set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats and milk. Let stand for about 5 minutes.
  4. Mix in the eggs, onion, Worcestershire, thyme, oregano, 1/4 cup of the ketchup, salt and pepper.
  5. Add the ground meats in and combine using your hands (I recommend removing any rings!) until just mixed.
  6. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and form into an 8×5-inch loaf.
  7. Spread the glaze on the top and sides.
  8. Arrange the tomato along the edges of the dish.
  9. Bake 50-60 minutes or until cooked through (internal temperature should reach 165 degrees).

  1. […] Meatloaf is a very versatile dish. There are variations on meatloaf that can be found on menus across the globe, and there are even recipes going back to ancient Rome! Using a blend of ground turkey and beef makes it a little bit lighter than some versions you might find. You will add in lots of Italian herbs and some cheese to balance it out. Not sure that this one is your style? Check out one of these other versions: Caroline’s meatloaf, vegetable meatloaf, yummy meatloaf, or roasted tomato meatloaf. […]
