    Miss Kitty's Note:

    This REALLY is my Mom's meatloaf recipe!!! I remember helping make this as a child, and hearing Mom say, "keep squeezing"!! When it was "squeezed" enough, we plopped it into an old glass casserole dish, and put it in the oven. This recipe is good for folks who can't have, or don't like, the chunks of peppers and onions that you find in most meatloaf. We even served it, listed on the menu as "Mom's Meatloaf", at my brother's restaurant. Our customers loved it! Simple AND tasty!

      Check if done by slicing down the middle, if there is no pink meat, it's done.

      This is a wonderful meatloaf! So quick and easy to make. The Lipton Onion Soup Mix gave it a great flavor and everyone loved it. Thank so so much Miss Kitty (and Miss Kitty's Mom). I will be making this over and over again. :-)

      Miss Kitty...thank you! What a great recipe. With your help I did substitute some bouillon cubes and dried onion & chives for the soup mix (to avoid the MSG). The oatmeal made this hold up so much better than bread crumbs...and please tell Mom I had no "shoe leather bottom". Basting was the key. This was even better the next day on a sandwich. Thanks again!
