Crispy Fried Meatloaf

Everyone loves good old-fashioned meat loaf, but we  in the Mr. Food Test Kitchen jazzed it up a bit, keeping the timeless flavor we  all love but giving this Crispy Fried Meat Loaf a golden coating we can really  sink our teeth into.

Serves: 6


Chilling Time: 2 hr


Cooking Time: 1  hr

What You'll Need:
  • 2 pounds ground  beef
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2/3 cup ketchup, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup vegetable  oil
                    See a 4-Ingredient Pizza Bake Recipe                                      
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x  13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine beef, bread crumbs,  eggs, water, 1/3 cup ketchup, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2  teaspoon garlic powder; mix well. Place mixture in prepared dish and shape into  loaf. Spread remaining ketchup over top.
  3. Bake 60 to 70 minutes, or until no longer pink  in the center. Let cool, then refrigerate at least 2 hours. Slice cold meat loaf  into 3/4-inch slices.
  4. To make the coating, place flour in a shallow  dish; place eggs in another shallow dish and lightly beat. Combine Panko bread  crumbs, salt, and pepper in a third shallow dish. Coat a slice of meat loaf on  both sides with flour, then egg, and finally with bread crumbs.
  5. In a large skillet, heat oil until hot. Fry a  few slices at a time 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Drain  on a paper towel-lined platter and serve.
