This is my all time favorite dish, that my Grandmother served in her restaurant. She would serve this with real mashed potatoes and creamed corn.
- 2 lbs ground chuck
- 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄2 cup grated onion
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 2 cups breadcrumbs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup tomato juice (for topping) or 1 cup ketchup (for topping)
- salt and pepper
- Mix everything together very well and shape into 2 loaves.
- You can either pour the tomato juice or ketchup on top before baking, or apply the sauce to the top of the meat loaf 10 minutes before it is done.
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes to 1 hour or until done.
- Makes 2 loaves.
My search is over for the perfect easy meatloaf. Excellent flavor.. I think the Worcestershire really does the trick. I used red onion for the grated onion, which I grated on the finest grating blade. I only had 1 cup of breadcrumbs, so I used cracker crumbs for the remaining cup. This makes 2 meatloaves, about 8 slices each loaf.
I've been forgetting to review this. I first made it back in October and we've had it several times since then. It is SOOOOOO good. I make it with 2.5 pounds of ground turkey, a sleeve of crushed saltine crackers, and a least 5 T worcestershire. I cook it for 45 minutes, put the ketchup on and cook it another 30 minutes. The comment box is over the instructions, so I can't see how many loaves it says to make. I make two and place them at either end of a 9x13 dish. Thank you for this great recipe!
I made this on 10/14/07,and since it was just me(I only get meatloaf when SO isn't home)I cut this recipe in half.Even as I was mixing this,I thought that there was way too much breadcrumbs.And after tasting the finished product,I was right.If I do make this again I'm going to use just a 1/2 cup of crumbs,and maybe add some garlic powder.Thank you for posting,and "Keep Smiling:)"
