MeatloafOK, so this one isn’t so “fru-fru,” but it’s just good ol’ fashion PWT food.  We absolutely destroyed this loaf!  We remembered meatloaf being boring, but with a few ‘updates,’ this old tried-and-true dish can be pretty exciting again.

Serve with scalloped potatoes and some green beans.  (And don’t use a box or a can).


  • 1 1/2 lbs. of ground beef (lean will do)
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2-4 carrots, finely diced
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbls. each fresh parsley and thyme, finely chopped

For the glaze (courtesy of Alton Brown)

  • 1/2 cup catsup (or ketchup, whichever you prefer)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Dash Worcestershire sauce
  • Dash hot pepper sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients for the meatloaf by hand.  In a separate bowl, mix ingredients for glaze
  2. Grease a bread loaf pan; pour in meat mixture and shape into loaf.  Spread about 1/3 of the glaze on top of the loaf
  3. Bake at 350F for about 1 hour to 90 minutes.  Baste with remaining glaze twice during cooking.
