This is a recipe I found on another recipe site that I've modified to suit my family's tastes. Yumma!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs ground beef (I like chuck)
  • 12 cup crushed round buttery cracker (or you can use bread crumbs, oatmeal, saltines(any starch you want)
  • 34 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
  • 14 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons A.1. Original Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 2 slices bread


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients except bread slices together thoroughly.
  3. Line bottom of loaf pan with the sliced bread. (This will help absorb most of the grease that cooks out of the beef.)
  4. Press meatloaf mixture firmly in the loaf pan and bake for 45 - 60 minutes until done.

Flavorful and doesn't fall apart. This meatloaf was loved by our family especially by one who doesn't usually like meat loaf. Made for Spring PAC 2012.

I made this on 5/30/09 as part of mine and SO's dinner. I did make this recipe with one minor change, after about 45 minutes some ketchup was added to the top and baked for 15 more minutes. After removing from the oven, I let it " rest " for about 10 minutes before slicing . The meatloaf sliced into wonderfully perfect slices. After taking a couple of bites we both decided that it was way too salty for us. And the texture was "mealy " . I wish I could say that we enjoyed,but we didn't. But thanks for taking time to post this recipe to the database.

This is very good! I used egg beater in place of egg, but other then that I follwed the recipe as written. The overall flavor is more savory and a nice change fom our usual. Instead of putting it in one loaf pan I shaped two smaller ones and baked it for the 60 minutes just because I like to make sure its done :) Can't wait for the meatloaf sandwich tomorrow! Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for PAC Fall 08
