Grilled Meatloaf

grilled meatloaf
  • Prep Time
  • 6Servings


  • 1 1/2 cups Italian-style breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 2 tablespoons grated onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef sirloin
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef chuck
  • Cooking spray


Preheat a grill to medium. In a large bowl, stir together the breadcrumbs, half-and-half, onion, garlic, oregano, thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add the beef sirloin and chuck and mix until just combined.

Stack two 2-foot-long sheets of heavy-duty foil. Coat the top sheet with cooking spray. Place the meat mixture on top and shape into a 5-by-8-inch rectangular loaf. Fold up the sides of the top foil sheet to make a sturdy package. Turn the package a half-turn and fold in the sides of the bottom foil sheet to seal the meatloaf.

Place the package on the grill, cover and grill for 35 minutes; turn the package over and grill until the meatloaf is firm to the touch, about 25 minutes more. Let rest for 5 minutes, then unwrap and let stand for another 5 minutes before slicing.
