Chicken and Pork Meatloaf With No Milk ~ Recipe

My daughter had been asking for meatloaf for days (!), as we all get so tired of the same old meals, and we hadn't had meatloaf in forever! So meatloaf it was. (I just said meatloaf way too many times.....)

As you know, hubby can't have any dairy, so milk was not an option. So here the easiest, milk free, recipe for a great meatloaf.


  • 2 lbs Meat - I used a mixture of ground chicken and ground pork
  • 4 Green Onions - or one regular would do just fine
  • 1 heaping tsp Garlic - I used jarred, but fresh or powdered is fine
  • Ketchup - a squirt - then about 1/4 cup for topping
  • 2 tsp Pickapepper Sauce - then 2 tsp more for topping
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 cup Breadcrumbs
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Dried Basil and Parsley to taste
  • Crushed Red Pepper to taste
  • Olive Oil cooking spray

One reason I love meatloaf is that it is so easy! Just throw everything in the bowl and mix. That is basically it. But I took pictures so you can see the progression.

Slice the green onions, saving the end greens for sprinkling on top when serving.

Add the ground meat. I used ground chicken and ground pork.

Use your favorite ground meats.
I mixed meats because all chicken meatloaf is a little mushy.
The pork gives just the right amount of body.

Add all the other ingredients to the bowl.

At the last minute, we decided to add crushed red peppers. We like it spicy, but the boys said it wasn't enough. Add to your specific taste.

Mold into loaf form. This part is ridiculously easy, and kind of fun.
Set your loaf in a dish with sides, sprayed with olive oil cooking spray, I used a glass one. 

Mix together about 1/4 cup ketchup and 2 more teaspoons of Pickapepper, spread over the top of the loaf.

You can put it in a loaf pan, but I found the juices pile up in a loaf pan and then just boil the meat. Not as good.
Use a pan large enough so the juices
are pulled away from the loaf a bit.

Bake in 350 degree oven for about an hour. 

Slice, and enjoy. 
Squash and Broccoli are fantastic sides for this meal.

I decided we would have veggies with our meal instead of the starch we usually have, and it was a fabulous change from the usual rice we have. 

The only complaint I got was there wasn't enough! (Even though everyone had 2 helpings)

Next time, especially when my oldest is home from college, I am going to have to make 3 of these to satisfy the troops! They were even dreaming of leftover meatloaf sandwiches. 

When is the last time you had your family begging for more meatloaf?

  1. I always forget to take my rings off.

  2. Sandra, I usually do! I happened to think of it before I dug in to this meatloaf, and thought I should mention it.

    There is nothing worse than trying to get ground meat out of the setting on my ring!
