Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease a 9x5-inch (23x13 cm) loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, chopped onion, minced garlic, eggs, breadcrumbs, milk, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, thyme, salt, and black pepper. Mix well with your hands or a wooden spoon until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
Transfer the mixture into the greased loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
If you like, add any desired toppings such as additional ketchup or BBQ sauce, bacon strips, or sliced mushrooms on top of the meatloaf.
Bake the meatloaf in the preheated oven for 60-75 minutes, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 160°F (71°C) in the center. You can use a meat thermometer to check the temperature.
Once fully cooked, remove the meatloaf from the oven and let it rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
Serve the meatloaf with your favorite sides, such as mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, or a fresh salad.
Enjoy your delicious classic meatloaf!
