This is a recipe that just kinda evolved. Its pretty easy to make and always turns out moist and yummy. I use V8 to get some veggie points and it's topped with ketchup so most kids like it.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb lean hamburger
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package onion soup mix
  • 4 ounces saltine crackers, crushed
  • 2 (12 ounce) cans V8 vegetable juice
  • ketchup


  1. Use one can of V8, mix everything together.
  2. Form into a loaf, place in covered dish -- I use stoneware but you can use a dutch oven or glass dish topped with tinfoil.
  3. Pour remaining can of V8 over the loaf.
  4. Top with ketchup.
  5. Bake at 400 for 1hr.
