This is my mom's very simple and very delicious meatloaf recipe. **Be careful- it's been reviewed as very salty!! It may not need the salt called for in the recipe. It is probably the Progresso breadcrumbs. I use kosher meat which does not need extra salt because it is already salted and also contributes to the flavor- I've tried and the flavor hasn't come out as good with other meat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Combine all ingredients in medium bowl.
  3. Mix well with hands until thoroughly blended.
  4. Spread into loaf pans- loosely, don't pack too tightly.
  5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45-50 minutes.
  6. Remove foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes until top is brown (raise oven temp to 350 at this point for a crispier top).

For a 'plain' meatloaf it was good(and not salty!)...even my kids liked it.

I bet the salty reviewer used garlic SALT!! instead of the suggested powder, commen and understandable mistake. I'm getting ready to make this now, I'll let you know how it goes :)

I have made this 3 times now and my family loves it. I added a teaspoon of tomato paste and about a teaspoon of itallian seasoning. After I put it on the pan I pour more tomato paste over the whole meatloaf.
