Chessie's Tomato N Onion Meatloaf

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Chef Chessie

This tomatoey onioney meatloaf is my family's favorite comfort food. When mixing raw meat with my hands, I like to measure everything out before i begin so I do not contaminate containers. I like to prepare it and place in loaf pan the night before so it binds well. I add the ketchup just before I put it in the oven.

This was ok it just didn't have alot of flavor. I thought it would be jazzed up by the french fried onions but they didn't do much for it.
