This is so good! No tomato sauce in this one and a great sauce to smother it in! Its a Paula Deen recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix all ingredients together, except the bread slices and Sauce. Shape into a loaf. Line a 1 1/2-quart loaf pan with the bread slices. Place meatloaf on top. Bake loaf for 1 hour and 15 minutes. The bread absorbs the grease and should be discarded after loaf is removed from oven.
  3. For the sauce: Heat the soup and milk over medium heat; add the cheese. Add the chopped onions and parsley to the sauce, if desired. Pour Sauce over the meatloaf or pass at the table.

This is exceptional!! It is without a doubt the best meatloaf that I've ever eaten. I LOVE meatloaf and this is the best. My family likes it, too. I think that the Ritz crackers are the key to this-yum! The bread does really soak up the grease. Wish I'd have thought of that trick years ago! The sauce is very good, too. Actually, the last time that I served this, my husband put the bowl of sauce in front of him and proceeded to put crackers in it---he thought it was cheese soup.!!! He said that it was good that way!!! Oh brother!

I have made this meatloaf several times. Paula Deen's recipes are always delicious. It turned me into a meatloaf fan. It is good!! I serve it with mashed potatoes, and use the sauce on both the meatloaf and potatoes. Thanks for posting the recipe here.

This is for the meatloaf recipe only since I didn't make the sauce. This was a really great tasting meatloaf. I used a finely shredded colby/jack cheese. The only thing I did differently was add and egg and use only 1 T of worcestershire sauce because that seemed like plenty to me. This turned out very moist and tender. Next time may use red bell pepper and try the sauce. A Keeper--Thanks for posting!
