My mom’s meatloaf was one of my favorite dinners in her repertoire

She served it with salad & roasted potaotes. I always fought for an end piece because that’s where the crispiest part was. I am sure if she found a good meat replacement, she would have happily made this meatless meatloaf version for my vegan brother while we were growing up. 

Now I can make it for him and my niece who is vegetarian and we can all remember my Mom fondly!  I remember sitting in the kitchen watching her take off her rings and mixing the meatloaf by hand in her grandmother’s giant ceramic bowl.  She always loved the leftovers on a sandwich with a ton of mayo (ick) the next day.   I like ketchup, mustard, arugula & a bunch of chips smashed in for good measure. Keep scrolling. You’ll see what I mean.

Ingredients involved:

My Mom used Worcestershire sauce in her meatloaf. It’s got anchovies in it which doesn’t make it vegetarian or vegan friendly.  I used soy sauce in this, but if you have a vegan Worcestershire sauce, go for it!

She also used eggs as a binder. Here there are none! The ingredients do a good job sticking together on their own. 

Chop therapy! Chop the onions pretty small if you can.

Let’s get it all mixed. 


Form into a loaf. This is my well-loved sheet pan. Do you have a favorite sheet pan?

This is mine.

Let’s spread some ketchup on top. 

Sprinkle with thyme.



Meatloaf, red onions, ketchup, mustard and ARUGULA.

If I had a vegan sandwich shop, this would definitely be on the menu.

Put mayo on it if that’s your thing. It’s your life. Live it.

Spray a baking sheet with baking spray and set aside. 

In a large bowl, mix meat, onion, garlic, soy sauce, ketchup, mustard, thyme, and breadcrumbs with a large wooden spoon until the mixture is well combined. Season with salt & pepper and place meat on the prepared baking sheet. Shape into a loaf. Baste the 3 tablespoons ketchup over the top of the meatloaf. Sprinkle with a few pinches of dried thyme. 

Place in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes. Meatloaf should have a nice caramelized crust.
