Making pan-fried meatloaf is quick, easy and delicious. It’s a family favorite for many reasons. All the herbs and spices added from a single can of Stove Top stuffing make all the difference when it comes to a perfectly seasoned meatloaf recipe.
As strange as it may sound, I prefer to use the chicken-flavored Stove Stop stuffing in this meatloaf recipe, but the savory herbs are also a perfect choice. There are many flavors to choose from and all will work great.
With just a few ingredients, this recipe is sure to become a family favorite!
I like to use a lean 85/15% hamburger for this skillet meatloaf recipe, but if you prefer a higher fat content in your burger, it will work just fine. I find that using a 93/7% fat burger doesn’t have enough fat or liquid to moisten all the breadcrumbs.
The 85/15% gives just enough fat to add to the flavor, keep the meatloaf moist and not be heavy on the fat when it’s all done.
1 package Stove Top stuffing (use one of your favorite flavors, I prefer chicken, but herbed savory is good too!)
1 cup of hot water
2 packages of brown gravy mix (one for the inside of the meatloaf and one for the top)
1.5 lbs ground beef
1 cup cold water
2 large eggs, beaten
In a medium bowl, add the stuffing mix and 1 cup of hot water.
Let stuffing sit for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in another medium bowl, mix 1 package of brown gravy with 1 cup of cold water.
Add ground beef and egg, mix well (easiest to do with your hands, it’s gross, I know).
After the stuffing has rested for 5 minutes, stir the stuffing mixture into the ground beef mixture.
Grease a bundt pan with non-stick spray, then press the ground beef mixture into the pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes or until the inside is no longer pink.
Once baked, let rest for about 5 minutes, then invert the pan onto a plate.
Serve with mashed potatoes and brown gravy in the center of the meatloaf.
That’s it! It’s as easy as pie! If you’re not sure what to make for dinner, this pan stuffed meatloaf recipe is an easy one to make and everyone can enjoy it!
