Meatloaf Seasoning

Meatloaf would be nothing without the spices and flavoring that cause it to stand out from other recipes that call for ground meat. Seasoning is the key to creating a delicious and flavorful dinner the whole family will enjoy. The right combination of herbs and spices can really punch up your ground meat, and while it’s possible to buy a meatloaf seasoning packet, you can also make it yourself from scratch with simple spices you likely already have on hand. There are as many variations of meatloaf seasoning recipes as there are meatloaf recipes, but most of the recipes contain many of the same ingredients:

  • salt
  • pepper
  • paprika
  • basil
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • dried mustard
  • dried thyme

The amount of each ingredient may vary depending on the recipe and personal preference, but most recipes will combine these spices and include them into their ground meat as the key to a tasty meatloaf dinner to satisfy any craving.

One common meatloaf seasoning recipe for a 2-pound meatloaf is:

  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. basil
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp. dried mustard
  • ¼ tsp. dried thyme
