Elaine’s Meatloaf

After making meatloaf from a recipe last week, I decided to put my own twist on meatloaf. It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself.


  • About 1 kg. of extra lean ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp ketchup
  • 1/8 of a red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 c. bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a mixing bowl (using your hands is best for mixing). When all ingredients have very well mixed, place in a loaf pan (I didn’t grease mine and it didn’t stick to it when it was done). Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees F., then increase temperature to 375 F. for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and serve hot with a side. I also make meat loaf sandwiches with it which are very good with a little olive and pepper tapenade or your favourite condiment.
