Classic Beef and Pork Meatloaf is an old-fashioned family-friendly recipe full of flavor. The savory meatloaf combines with a delicious sweet glaze that is sure to be one of your new favorites!



For the meatloaf:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 cup Ritz crackers, crushed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

For the glaze:

  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper or foil and place on a rimmed baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl combine ground beef, ground pork, crushed crackers, eggs, milk, 1/2 cup ketchup, and spices. Knead together with your hands to mix until just combined.
  3. Press the meat mixture into the prepared pan and use a rubber spatula to press it in evenly.
  4. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes.
  5. As you approach the 45 minute mark, mix together glaze ingredients in a small bowl.
  6. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and carefully drain any grease if necessary. (A turkey baster is good for this.)
  7. Spoon half the glaze over the meatloaf, being sure not to touch the spoon to the half-cooked meatloaf so you don't cross contaminate the glaze.
  8. Return the meatloaf to the oven and bake an additional 45 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
  9. Let meatloaf sit 15 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve with remaining glaze for dipping.
