Quick Easy Meatloaf Recipe

One of those classic comfort foods my mom used to make us was meatloaf.  She would always serve it with a side of mashed potatoes and green beans.  This Quick Easy Meatloaf Recipe reminds me of my mom’s, but is so much simpler to make.  I literally throw everything together in under 5 minutes, toss in the oven and my family raves over it.  If you are looking for a tasty and inexpensive entree to make, this is definitely the meal for you.

2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder

1 Teaspoon Oregano

1 Teaspoon Salt

1 Teaspoon Paprika

1 Teaspoon Black Pepper

1/4 Cup Tomato Paste

1/4 Cup Barbecue Sauce



  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • In large bowl mix together all ingredients except tomato past and barbecue sauce.
  • Form into loaf and place in center of casserole dish (I prefer this method over loaf pans so grease drains off easier)

    Can’t live without meatloaf and I’m always willing to try another recipe. It’s funny to me when I post a basic recipe like this and people comment that they’ve never made… We love meatloaf!

    Thank you for sharing at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. We love having you. 🙂
