In all the truth i do not make meatloaf either. Just doesn't taste good without pork.
That reminds me - I forgot to mention, I use what my grocery store calls "meatloaf mix" - 1 pound of ground beef and 1/2 pound ground pork. It definitely improves the flavor.

I'm gonna give you 2 proven meatloaf recipes. Both make wonderful meatloaf. But they are completely different recipes. First, my world famous Mexican Volcano Meatloaf:

Mexican Volcano:
Ingredients:
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. bulk Chorizo (or Italian sausage)
1 tbs. chili powder
1/2 tbs. cayenne pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh Jalapeno peppers
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup ketchup
3/4 cup enchilada sauce, or salsa
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup Balderson 2 year old Medium Cheddar Cheese
1 large egg
Preheat the oven to 375'‑ F. Remove the Chorizo from its
casing. Mix together the ground beef, Chorizo, chili powder, cayenne pepper, jalapeno peppers, egg, Balderson Cheddar, and bread crumbs. Knead together until well mixed. Lightly grease a 12" square casserole dish and place the meat mixture into it.
Shape the mixture into a volcanic mountain with valleys and
cliffs. Show off your hidden artistic talents. Create a crater in the top suitable for about a 1/4 cup of sauce. Place the “volcano” into the oven, with a meat thermometer inserted to the center.
Cook for 45 minutes. Check the thermometer. When the
internal temperature reaches 175'‑ F., remove from the oven.
Pour the sauce into the crater, making sure that rivulets of
sauce run down the mountain sides. Place strands of Mozzarella
cheese shreds onto the rivulets and in the crater to mimic the
glowing hot lava. Place in the oven until the cheese melts
slightly. Remove from the oven and place onto a serving
platter. Slice into eight equal wedges and serve with little
men made from toothpicks and Vienna sausage and toothpicks
(half covered by lava). Make trees with Broccoli to finish the
hapless village. Your kids will love it, and your guests will

gasp with delight. (Omit the little men if you want. That
might be a bit much).

Meatloaf #2:
That's Good Stuff! Meatloaf
1/2 lb. Ground Chuck
1 lb. Itallian Sausage
1 large egg
1/4 cup whole milk
1/4 cup rolled oats (oatmeal) or whole wheat bread-crumbs)
1 medium yellow onion, finely diced
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried sweet basil
1/2 tsp. granulated garllic powder.

Combine all ingredients. Place in a loaf pan with a meat thermometer placed to the center. Bake at 375' F. until the thermometer reads 165. Remove and let rest for 10 minutes. Remove from the loaf pan and serve with noodles, rice, or smashed spuds.

Hope you like these recipes. They will, if nothing else, add variety to your home menu.

Seeeeeeya; Goodweed or the North

There are probably a gazillion "recipes" for meatloaf. I change it out every time. Can you give us an idea of what your Mom's ML was like/included, and what part did not work.

Flavor just is a bit off(ketchup, Worcestershire, onion balance) , consistency isn't there. It usually doesn't hold together or it splits open when baking.

Everything else I cook turns out great... this one just doesn't work for me.

The volcano meatloaf sounds good. Not regular meatloaf by any means, although I doubt I sculpt it.

I agree with the concept of mixed ground meat as the most important ingredient of a great meatloaf. Try a mix of beef, pork and veal if you can find it. Then it's a simple process of mixing the egg, milk, bread crumbs, minced onion, poultry seasoning, mustard powder, and a tad minced garlic. Put it in the pan then spread some ketchup on top and bake.

After baking, I take it out of the oven and pour off the drippings so they don't redistribute in the meat. It stays nice and juicy but not too fatty. I just keep enough of the drippings to make gravy with. HTH.
That is the same recipe both my mother and my mother-in-law used, and it can't be beat. I love it.
