This dairy-free recipe variation of the home-cooking classic is a favorite among both kids and adults, especially when served with dairy-free creamy mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy.

Make one 9" x 5" meatloaf

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes


  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • 1 T. and 1 t. Worcestershire sauce, divided
  • 1 ½ lbs. lean ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 ½ t. salt
  • ¼ t. black pepper
  • ½ cup plain unsweetened plain almond milk or soymilk
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ¾ cup panko bread crumbs


1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly oil a 9” x 5” loaf pan.

2. Using your fingers, press the brown sugar evenly into the oiled loaf pan. Combine the ketchup with the 1 t. Worcestershire sauce and spread this over the brown sugar.

3. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, onion, garlic, salt and pepper until well combined. Add the remaining 1 T. Worcestershire sauce, almond milk or soymilk, eggs and panko bread crumbs, stirring until mixture just holds together. Press the mixture into the shape of a loaf and press into the prepared pan. Bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour, or until cooked through. Serve hot.
