    James McDonald's Note:

    As it seems like eveyone's else's recipie is, this recipe was passed down through my mom. I like to use a combination of lean and not-so-lean ground beef for this recipe. Personally, I use a 2:1 ratio of 90% lean and 80% lean ground beef. I suppose some may prefer to include mushrooms in the meatloaf, but that has never suited me. Although it's a lot messier, mixing the recipe with your hands provides an even consistency. I always serve this meatloaf with my version of Beef Succotash.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 1/2 lbs ground beef
    • 2 -3 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt (heaping)
    • 1/2 teaspoon onion salt (heaping)
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 dash garlic powder
    • 6 ounces mushroom gravy, Heinz Home Style Rich Mushroom Gravy (strained)
    • 1 1/4 cups breadcrumbs
    • black pepper (optional)


    1. 1
      In a large bowl, mix ground beef and eggs.
    2. 2
      Using a screen, add mushroom gravy to meat. I use a screen to strain mushrooms out of the gravy. Try to add as much gravy as possible without adding mushrooms.
    3. 3
      Add season salt, onion salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Mix well.
    4. 4
      Add bread crumbs until meat forms a ball that doesn't stick to the bowl.
    5. 5
      Shape into a loaf and place in a greased 3 quart loaf pan.
    6. 6
      For a crispier crust (and more flavor) sprinkle top of loaf with black pepper.
    7. 7
      Bake for 75 minutes at 375°F.
    8. 8
      Remove meatloaf from pan, place on platter, and serve.
