  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 8x8 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).


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Uh.....gosh. I was really excited about this meatloaf. Followed this exact, only adding garlic powder to the meatloaf and a little dijon to the topping ingredients. This meatloaf was REALLY wet....

I have never had or made meatloaf before but have a freezer full of ground beef as my husbands family has a cattle farm so I needed new ideas to use it. This looked interesting so I tried it! I ...
