1/1 Photo of Mom's Meatloaf (German Falsche Hase)
1 hr 15 mins
A real family pleaser, and great comfort food. Great served with green beans and mashed potatoes, with extra catsup on the side. I usually double the recipe and make two loaves in order to have extra for meatloaf sandwiches the next day--yum!!! Recipe is from my mother who learned it from my Oma, growing up.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 1/3 lbs ground beef (I like it with ground round)
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons onions, finely chopped
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 slice white bread, torn into 1/2 inch chunks
- 1/8-1/4 cup milk
- 1 slice bacon, uncooked, cut crosswise into narrow strips (1/4-inch x 1-inch slivers)
- 1 tablespoon fine breadcrumbs (generous, a grated hard roll, oats or wheat germ will do)
- 1 tablespoon catsup (generous)
- 1Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- 2Soak white bread in enough milk to make a mush, set aside.
- 3Mix together ground beef, eggs, onion, salt and pepper; blend well.
- 4Add bread/milk mixture to the meat mixture.
- 5Pat meat into a loaf shape and place onto baking sheet with a lip to catch drippings (line the pan with foil for easy cleanup).
- 6Press bacon slivers gently into top of loaf with pointed tip of a knife.
- 7Spoon catsup generously on top of meatloaf, then sprinkle with fine breadcrumbs.
- 8Bake for 50-60 minutes, until the meat is nicely browned and topping is caramelized.
- 9Leftovers make very delectable sandwiches the following day, so you may wish to double the recipe and make two loaves! I prefer white bread for mine, with just a little catsup. DH likes his with whole grain wheat bread and lotsa catsup. I hope you enjoy :).
