Recipe for juicy homemade meatloaf

A delicious meatloaf made of ground pork and topped with bacon. It is baked in the oven making it super easy to cook. Never underestimate simple and delicious food that is baked in the oven. While it cooks you can clean the kitchen, set the table, or maybe even whip together a nice side dish like a salad or some potatoes.

This meatloaf is made of a simple ground pork mixture with egg, flour, bouillon, and spices. Then you just form your loaf and put it in an ovensafe dish before placing bacon strips all over the top. We like to serve our meatloaf with baked potatoes, sauce, and a good salad. The possibilities are endless though, and you can serve with many other sides as well. See the bottom section on this page for more side dish inspiration.

Meat loaf in oven

As mentioned above one of the best things about a classic meatloaf is that it gets baked in the oven. It more or less takes care of itself as it cooks. Furthermore, the prep time for a meatloaf is minimal which is also something we love when cooking dinner after a busy day.

We have added bacon strips on top of our meatloaf for additional flavor and juiciness. You can also add Serrano ham instead if you wish. It’s a very delicious alternative to bacon and is a little less greasy.

What should I serve with meatloaf?

A classic meatloaf can be served with many different side dishes, making planning for this meal quite easy. For example some creamy scalloped potatoes or our easy baked thyme potatoes would be amazing with meatloaf. You could also serve a yummy sweet potato salad or a green bean salad with feta cheese. All of these are easy with just a few ingredients needed.
