    diner524's Note:

    This is the recipe that my Mother used for both her meatloaf and meatballs prior to cooking. Very simple, quick and few ingredients needed. Freezes easily!!!! I usually double the recipe and freeze half of the amount. Good for OAMC.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine onion, saltine crackers, salt, pepper, egg and milk.
    2. 2
      Add ground beef and mix to combine.
    3. 3
      At this point, you can shape into loaves, wrap in plastic wrap, place in freezer bag and freeze for later use.
    4. 4
      If using for meatballs, spread mixture out on plastic wrap in a flat square; put in freezer bag and freeze. I use defrost level in microwave to defrost 1 lb ground beef.
    5. 5
      For meatloaf, we simply pour a layer of ketchup over the loaf and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
    6. 6
      For meatballs, shape into desired size; brown in fry pan with 1 tablespoon oil. Add meatballs to tomato/spaghetti sauce or chili sauce with grape jelly sauce.
    7. 7
      Variation: Feel free to add garlic powder or minced garlic and/or Parmesan cheese.

      I made this as written and made 4 mini meat loaves. They were very good. I will use this to make the meatballs in the near future.

      Wonderful basic recipe for meatloaf, meatballs, or patties too. I made some into hamburger patties, fried until well done in a little olive oil; drained well; placed in a single layer in a casserole dish; spread with some spaghetti sauce; sprinkled with freshly grated Parmesan cheese; baked until cheese was melted. Served with spaghetti, tossed salad and thick slices of French bread. I made another batch into Italian style meatballs, adding minced garlic and Parmesan cheese, and used my cookie scoop with a release lever to get them an even size, froze the meatballs in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. When frozen I placed them in a freezer bag, labelled and dated, for later use.

      A very good basic meatloaf recipe. For allergy reasons I had to use spring onion/scallion for the onion and used Jatz crackers for the saltines as that is what I had. I also doubled the recipe but only needed to use 1/2 cup of milk. I made it into 6 mini meatloafs and 3 muffin size ones. The mini meatloafs took 45 minutes to cook and the muffin ones 30 minutes. When making again I will definately add other flavours such as garlic and/or worcestershire sauce. Thank you diner524, made for Everyday is a Holiday.
