What Are Some Quick and Easy Meatloaf Recipes?

Hunt's meatloaf in 30 minutes and Paula Deen's old fashioned meatloaf are quick and easy meatloaf recipes. Both dishes only require 10 minutes of preparation.

Make 30 minute meatloaf by combining half of a 15 1/4 ounce can of Hunt's seasoned tomato sauce for meatloaf, 2 tablespoons of firmly packed dark brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley in a small bowl, and set it to one side for topping.

In a medium bowl, thoroughly blend 2 pounds of ground beef, 2 beaten eggs, 1 cup of dry unseasoned bread crumbs, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper. Form the mixture into 8 even oval loaves and put them in a 13 by 9-inch baking pan. Bake uncovered at 400 F for 15 minutes, top with sauce, and bake an additional five minutes.

For old-fashioned meatloaf, mix 1 pound of ground beef, 1/2 cup of chopped onion, 1/2 cup of chopped bell pepper, 1 lightly beaten egg and 8-ounces of canned diced tomatoes with the juice. Add 1 1/4 teaspoons of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper and 1/4 cup of quick-cooking oats. Blend the mixture thoroughly, form into a loaf, and place in a baking pan.

Make the topping by mixing 1/3 cup of ketchup, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of prepared mustard. Spread the topping on the loaf, and bake it for 1 hour at 375 F.
