Southern Meatloaf Recipe

I wanted to make a truly southern meatloaf like my grandmother made when I went to visit her.  She never wrote her recipe down.  It was always there in her head, but I never took the time to write it down.  I think this is the closest I've come to reproducing Grandma's best meatloaf.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

Southern Meatloaf Ingredients

• 2 pounds ground beef
• 1/2 pound fresh ground pork
• 1 cup dry bread crumbs
• 2 teaspoons salt
• 1/2 teaspoon pepper
• 1 large egg
• 3 tablespoons butter
• 1/2 cup hot water

Southern Meatloaf Recipe Directions

Place a medium sized baking pan into a cool oven and heat oven to 350 degrees.

Place the hot water into a large mixing bowl and add the butter.  Stir until completely melted.  Add all remaining ingredients and mix well.

Shape mixture into a loaf and place in heated baking pan.  Cook your meatloaf for approximately 40 minutes or until an internal temperature of 170 degrees has been reached.

Don't overcook or the meatloaf will be dry.  You may serve this southern meatloaf either hot or cold.  My kids like to use ketchup when eating this, but I prefer sauteed onions on the top of mine.

This recipe also freezes well, so it can be a good idea to double the recipe and make 2 loaves of meatloaf at once.  It will take a bit longer to cook 2 meatloaves, but use an internal meat thermometer to test for doneness.  Cool 2nd meatloaf completely before covering in freezer wrap and storing in your freezer for another night.  Thaw in your refrigerator and reheat in 350 degree oven.  Cover the meatloaf with aluminum foil while reheating to make sure the meatloaf doesn't dry out.
