Simple & Delicious Meatloaf Recipe

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of McCormick & Company. All opinions are 100% mine.


One of the things I strive to provide in our home is a fresh home cooked dinner on the table at least 5 days week. With two little boys, I want to be sure they know the value of a good meal! One of our favorites to make is meatloaf. It is actually my husband’s specialty to create, and he likes to make it a little different each time. Well, I have news for him. I may have just replaced him in the meatloaf-making department AND found a winner of a recipe that we will be sticking with after trying McCormick’s Italian Meatloaf!


The real winner to this particular meatloaf recipe is the seasonings. It includes one of my all time favorite go to spices, McCormick’s Perfect Pinch Italian Seasoning. I use this for so many of the recipes we make! And its perfect in this meatloaf paired with McCormick’s garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper.


And my favorite things about this recipe? How easy it was to make! Here I thought my husband was slaving away in the kitchen making meatloaf for us all these years… I had the loaf and topping whipped up in less than ten minutes! Then I was free to do as I pleased entertaining my boys while it baked in the oven. It could not have been easier. 

Yes indeed, I am the new meatloaf maker in this house. You simply cannot beat a meal that is this simple to make and tastes so delicious! Want the recipe? You can find it and more at or simply follow the recipe below.
