Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Cook: 25 min.

Meat loaf that cooks in less than half an hour? You’ve got it. This is the best and fastest meat loaf I’ve ever tasted. The moist, mild slices are great served with mashed potatoes. —Becky Bolte, Jewell, Kansas

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
