Notes

Use a gentle touch with ground beef. Over-mixing will result in burgers, meatballs or meatloaves with a firm texture.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Pound ground beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 3/4 Cups panko bread crumbs
  • 3/4 Cups ketchup, divided
  • 1/2 Cup minced onion
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 Teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3/4 Teaspoons pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Combine ground beef, bread crumbs, 1/2 cup ketchup, onion, egg, Worcestershire, garlic, thyme, pepper and salt in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.

Shape beef into 8 x 4-inch loaf on rack in aluminum foil-lined broiler pan.

Place on upper oven rack in 350°F oven and bake 45 to 55 minutes, until instant-read thermometer inserted into center registers 160°F.

Brush with remaining 1/4 cup ketchup during last 10 minutes, if desired.

Let stand 10 minutes.

Cut into slices.
