Homemade Meatloaf Seasoning

Have you ever dreamed of making your generic meatloaf into something truly out of this world? If so, adding a little seasoning to your meatloaf could be the perfect way to transform your standard recipe. Luckily, we’ve come up with some key tips and ideas for how to make your own homemade meatloaf seasoning as follows; you might just be amazed by how this could transform your meatloaf going forward!

Why Homemade Meatloaf Seasoning is Better than Shop-Bought

Did you know homemade meatloaf seasoning is often much better than shop-bought solutions? There are several reasons for this, but perhaps the most obvious is that you can choose the seasoning ingredients you like most. This allows you to customize your homemade meatloaf seasoning rather than having to “make do” with a pre-prepared seasoning.

After all, for many people, shop-bought can be too strong or too mild for their preferences. By making homemade seasoning, you can tweak the ratio of ingredients based on your tastes.

How to Make Homemade Meatloaf Seasoning

If you’re ready to try your own homemade meatloaf seasoning, it’s important to consider the different spices and herbs you could include. This will invariably depend on your personal preferences. But, if you need somewhere to start your search, we’d recommend the following ingredients, used in varying doses depending on how strong you’d like your seasoning and how much meatloaf you’re making.

Of course, salt and pepper are the basic seasoning options for any meatloaf. We recommend ground black pepper for this; don’t use any more than half a teaspoon of each in your mix, depending on taste, since you’ll likely find this surprisingly overpowering if not careful.



  1. Mix all spices together.
  2. Add to 2 pounds of ground beef.

Using your Seasoning Mix

Once you have mixed up your combination of seasonings, using them is incredibly easy. Simply take a small amount of seasoning and mix into your meatloaf mix before baking as normal. Alternatively, for a less spiced seasoning mix, you could coat the outside of your meatloaf with spices and herbs for a big kick of flavor. Don’t use too much – it could be strong!


You can make meatloaf seasoning ahead and store it in a Ziplock bag or in a jar with a lid, such as a mason jar. You can even make a big batch of this meatloaf seasoning, so you can always have it on hand. Use 4 tablespoons of seasoning for every two pounds of ground beef.

Final Thoughts

If you have been looking for ways to boost your meatloaf and take it to the next level, starting with today’s suggestions for homemade meatloaf seasoning could be ideal. Of course, a good meatloaf is already packed full of flavor. However, that doesn’t mean you have to stop there. With a simple combination of delicious herbs and spices, you can add even more magic to your meatloaf recipe – so you know it’ll be a big hit with all the family!
