My grandma used to make this all the time when I was growing up. You can either make it into a loaf or into meatballs...excellent both ways!

My original review of 11/30/07 is below. I re-made this last night and included all the ingredients! LOL We liked this. A good classic mealoaf. Original review: Very good basic meatloaf. I doubled it (as I had 3 lbs of meat) and made 2 loaves. Obviously, it took longer to cook. I left off the milk (accidentally!) and it was still lovely. That's the reason I'm not assigning stars, though. Without milk it's a 4. I'll try it again, correctly, and then re-assign stars! Thanks for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. I find it easiest and more to my taste to just toss the onion and green pepper in my little mini food processor(or chopper) because I don't like huge chunks of onion or green pepper.
  3. Mix everything together - except the ketchup.
  4. For the meatballs form into balls should make approximately 12 meatballs.
  5. Put into pan.
  6. Just before baking add the ketchup to the top, making sure to spread it all over.
  7. Bake for about an hour or until done. The ketchup turns a very dark red color, and doesn't look liquidy at all; that's when I usually know it's done.
