At the time of this posting there are 1704 recipes for meatloaf. Eh, what the hey I'll throw mine into the mix too. I made my first meatloaf about three years ago and found the basic recipe on epicurious. I made a few changes, served it up, and everybody loved it. We haven't tried another loaf of meat recipe since. This doesn't include a sauce - that's because I don't like sauce on my meatloaf. If I am feeling adventurous I will get out the ketchup.
- Heat oven to 375 degrees.
- In a large bowl mix all ingredients together. It's easiest to use your hands!
- Shape into a loaf and place into a loaf pan or in the middle of a 13x9 pan (my preferred method).
- Bake for 1 hour.
This recipe for us is more a 3.5 star but we always round up in a situation like that. I did halve this recipe for just DH and I. we found this to be a little on the dry side and I think with that much meat you really need some wet ingredients (Dale's, liquid smoke type things) to add a little more flavor as well as moisture. But we are "wet" meatloaf lovers so that could be just us. I served this sliced over smashed potatoes with brown gravy over top (which really helped with the dryness). I did really like the onion soup mix. Please don't let this fool you, but if you don't like dry meatloaf, be sure and add in some moisture. We in no way regret having this meatloaf for our "cheat" meal this week. [Made for Holiday Tag 2010]
This isn't a bad meatloaf by any stretch of the imagination..it's just missing a little something that would just nudge it up a star. It was a little drier than we normally like our meatloaf,but a little milk mixed with the breadcrumbs would remedy that no problem. I made half of it with sauce and half without,and I have to say that the family preferred the side with sauce,but thats just our personal opinion. Thanks Heidi.Made for PRMR.
