Simple Meatloaf

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESSo for this month’s recipe I thought that I would make it a slightly more involved recipe that is still relatively simple. This recipe is yet another multi use and versatile recipe.

This recipe ultimately is an entrée. There are a number of alterations that can be made to make it a more intense and flavorful dish. Another option is that it can easily be used for lunch in things such as sandwiches.


Simple Meatloaf


2 Tablespoons Butter

½ Rough Diced Onion

1 Rough Diced Green Pepper

2 Cloves Minced Garlic

Black Pepper to Taste

Kosher Salt to Taste

1 Sleeve Finely Crushed Ritz Crackers (See Notes)

2 Eggs

1 Pound Ground Beef (See Notes)

1 Pound Ground Turkey (See Notes)


  1. In a sauté pan melt the butter and cook the chopped onion until soft.
  2. Then add in the garlic and continue to cook until the onion is translucent.
  3. Add the salt and pepper to the pan before adding the chopped green pepper and continue to cook until soft.
  4. In a large bowel mix together all the ingredients until thoroughly combined.
  5. Place the mixture in a loaf pan that has been lightly sprayed with non-stick spray. (See Notes)
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 45 – 50 minutes or until the internal temperature is 160 degrees. (See Notes)
  7. Let sit for about 5 minutes prior to removing from pan.
  8. Slice into portions and serve with sides of your choice.



  • One cup seasoned bread crumbs can be substituted for the crackers.
  • The ground meat can be changed based on personal preferences.
  • If desired loaf can be made into any shape desired.
    • Round using a cake pan
    • Rough loaf shape on a sheet pan.
    • Square using a brownie pan.
  • Length of cooking time can change based on the shape and how thin the loaf is.
  • I served mine with sautéed Snow Peas and Mashed Sweet Potatoes.
