50s Prime Time Meatloaf


  • 2 lbs. ground beef I used about 2.25 lbs
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cups seasoned bread crumbs I tossed some salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano and basil into plain bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1/4 cup diced red pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced green pepper
  • 2 Tbs. worcestershire sauce
  • freshly ground pepper and kosher salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbs. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. dijon mustard

For the glaze

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg


  • Mix all the ingredients together.
  • Form into 1 or 2 loaves. I formed this into 2 loaves. One I put in a 9×13 foil lined pan, covered it with foil and baked it about 2 hours at 350 degrees. The other meatloaf I wrapped in heavy-duty foil and popped in the freezer.
  • When the meatloaf is done, remove the top foil and let it brown a minute in the oven.
  • Pull it out again and glaze it with a mixture of 1/2 cup ketchup, 1/4 cup brown sugar and a shake of nutmeg. This glaze is actually my mom’s recipe, instead of the WDW recipe for glaze.
