    All Thumbs's Note:

    This is an easy blend that I came up with after looking at a few different recipes. It just happened to please my family; I'm posting it here so I won't lose it, lol. They tend to like foods fairly bland and boring. I didn't measure to see how many cups of bread crumbs I got, as I kept crumbling slices of toast until it looked right. And the beef broth was my own homemade, still gelled from being in the fridge; I don't know if canned would be different.

      When I read this recipe I knew we would love it because of its simplicity. The flavors were just excellent. I used the full package of the onion soup mix, 1/2 tsp of garlic powder and 1/2 cup of the beef broth. I believe I added an additional 1/2 cup of the breadcrumbs after adding the broth as I thought the mixture was too wet. I baked 1/2 of the meat loaf and froze the other half for another time. thanks for sharing. Made for Fall 2011 PAC

      Thanks to Best of 2011 Cookbook Official Game I picked this recipe to try.

      I chose to use ground turkey for this and I cut back on the bread.

      What I realy loved about this dish is I was able to make a great meal in our toaster oven!

      The flavors are really good.
