  • Combine the ground beef, bread crumbs, saltines, egg, garlic, onion, 2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper in a large bowl; mix well. Pat meat mixture into a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

  • Bake meatloaf in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven; pour reserved pineapple mixture over loaf. Return to the oven; bake until no longer pink in the center, about an additional 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Wish I could split the rating on this because the topping was so delicious but the meatloaf itself needed some serious help. There are virtually no seasonings listed in the recipe which is rather unusual. I didn't see the need for both bread crumbs and saltines so I skipped the crackers. A whole onion garlic and onion powders black pepper dried parsley and worcestershire sauce went into the meat mixture. The end result was very tasty but I truly suggest you tweak and add seasonings to your liking because the glaze alone is worth trying. Thank you! Read More

I have no idea how i can mess up a simple meatloaf recipe but for some reason the texture of this meatloaf was unappealing. I like the other reviewer added a lil pineapple to my meat mixture and thought maybe that had an effect on the texture. I dont know what else could have happened. It was almost unedible to be honest. Have no idea what went wrong. I will attempt this again just because im a lil baffled. On a positive note the sauce was AMAZING! A lil to sweet so i will cut back on sugar next time but other than that it was amazing. I used real bacon instead of the bits. If anything i will continue to use the sauce for my meatload topping.

I have never left a review for anything on this site. I never felt like anything was really worth writting about but THIS IS AWESOME! I will never need another meatloaf recipe ever again. Even my daughter who is going through a "no meat" phase ate every bite! THANK YOU!!!!! Read More

Loved this recipe and my whole family loves it too! Even my teenagers who turn their nose up at the mention of the words meat and loaf in the same sentence ate this like they hadnt' eaten in weeks. Great recipe - I only changed one thing - I used real bacon instead of bacon bits. Nummy! Read More

Love this! I thought that it needed something in the meat mixture as well. So I added ketchup worcestershire sauce salt pepper and green pepper. I also cut out the crackers and used chips instead and used real bacon. Read More

I make meatloaf all of the time but have never followed a recipe before. The only change that I made in this was to skip the bacon. I really liked this and would make it again but my husband wasn't crazy about it. He prefers meatloaf without any topping. Thought that this one might win him over but no such luck. Read More
