The Pioneer Woman Meatloaf Recipe

One of our favorite easy weeknight recipes from The Pioneer Woman!


  • 1 cup 2% or whole milk
  • 6 slices of white bread
  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp all-purpose seasoning
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup minced parsley
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 8-10 slices of thin bacon
  • To make the sauce:
  • 1.5 cups ketchup
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • Dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • Several dashes of hot sauce


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Pour milk over the bread and allow it to soak for about 3 minutes.

Place the ground beef, milk-soaked bread, Parmesan, salt, pepper, seasoned salt and parsley in a large mixing bowl.

Add in eggs and mix the ingredients until everything is well combined.

Form the mixture into a loaf shape on a foil-lined broiler pan, which will allow the fat from the meat to drain.

Lay the bacon slices over the top of meatloaf, taking care to tuck the ends underneath the sides of the meatloaf.

How to make the sauce:

Pour ketchup into a small mixing bowl.

Add brown sugar, mustard, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Stir the mixture until well combined, and pour a third of the sauce on top of the meatloaf.

Bake for 45 minutes, and then pour over another third of the tomato sauce on top of the meatloaf. Bake for 20 minutes and then remove and let cool before serving.

Serve with a side of green beans and mashed potatoes for a complete weeknight comfort meal!
