Heinz Classic Meatloaf

This is truly classic comfort food. Every family has their own variation, but good cooks know to start with the best. And this is it.



1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
1 cup Heinz® Tomato Ketchup
1 1/2 lb. lean ground beef
1 cup soft, fresh breadcrumbs
1 large egg slightly beaten
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Heat oil in a skillet set over medium-high heat. Cook onion, celery and pepper until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in Ketchup. Remove pan from heat and divide sauce mixture in half.
  3. Combine one half of the sauce with ground beef, breadcrumbs, egg, salt, and pepper. Mix gently.
  4. Pat mixture into a lightly greased meatloaf pan. Bake for 1 hour or until an instant-read thermometer reaches 165 F.
  5. Rest meatloaf for 5 minutes. Reheat the reserved sauce mixture. Slice meatloaf and serve with sauce.
