Easy Meatloaf with Smoky Ketchup

Nothing says “comfort food” quite like meatloaf. Every home cook has their own variation of it. Some have cheese in the center, others incorporate veggies like carrots or zucchini. In this fast paced life, sometimes you just want to toss a handful of ingredients together and make something delicious. No fuss! Well, this is it, my friends. It’s so easy, packed with incredible flavor and done in a little over an hour.

Easy Meatloaf with Smoky Ketchup Recipe | Spiceology

We like using panko bread crumbs because they help bind everything together, and don’t leave large chunks of bread in the finished meatloaf. We also use beef stock in place of milk, as it makes it more flavorful. If you love regular bread crumbs and milk in your meatloaf, then by all means, swap those 2 ingredients.

Makes 8 Servings


  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
