Pineapple slices and a sweet sour glaze provide a new twist to an old classic.

  • Servings: 6
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 70 minutes
  • Total Time: 80 minutes


1½ lb Ground Round
1 lb Ground Pork
6 slices Cooked Bacon, crumbled
1½ cups Cracker Crumbs
1 Envelope Onion Soup Mix
2 tsp Garlic Powder
½ tsp Pepper
2 Eggs
¾ cup Teriyaki Sauce
½ cup Ketchup
3 –4 Slices Pineapple, canned in juice
3 –4 Maraschino Cherries
⅓ cup Pineapple Juice, from canned pineapple
¼ cup Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Rice Wine (or Cider) Vinegar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place the ground beef, pork, crumbled bacon, cracker crumbs, soup mix, garlic powder, and pepper in a large bowl, and mix well. Add eggs, teriyaki sauce and ketchup. Pat into a loaf shape, and place in a broiler pan with rack. Arrange pineapple rings on top of meatloaf, and place a maraschino cherry in center of each pineapple ring. Bake for 60–70 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted in loaf’s center registers 160 degrees.

While meat loaf is baking, combine pineapple juice, brown sugar and vinegar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for 4 minutes, or until slightly syrupy. Spoon over meat loaf about 15 minutes before done to make a nice glaze.

Helpful Tips:

Both bacon and cherries are optional, and the meatloaf tastes just fine without them.
