“I’m not sure where this recipe came from but it’s one that my mom made all the time when I was growing up. It’s now a regular at my house and it gets excellent reviews from everyone I’ve served it to…and the best part is the kids love it too!”

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dill pickle juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 slice bread, torn into small pieces
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill pickles
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 8×8 inch baking dish.
  2. Beat the egg in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the onion, pickle juice, salt, and pepper. Stir in the bread until soggy, then mix in the ground beef until evenly combined. Form into a loaf and place into the prepared pan. Stir together the chopped pickles, ketchup, water, sugar, and Worcestershire sauce; pour over the meatloaf.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
