This is usually one of the 2 meat loaves that I make. You can use Lipton onion soup mix or one of the other flavors that they make. Even good with ground turkey. Leftovers make great sandwiches

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 34 cup dry breadcrumbs or 1 12 cups fresh breadcrumbs or 5 slices bread, crumbled, i usually use oatmeal
  • 2 eggs
  • 34 cup water
  • 13 ketchup


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. Shape meat mixture into a loaf on a cookie sheet or 13 x 9 pan.
  4. Bake uncover 1 hour (when center feels firm when pressed).
  5. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

This is my favorite meatloaf. I've tried a zillion other recipes thinking that I should make a meatloaf that has a better pedigree than being from the back of a soup mix box. But the truth is this is the taste I like. I've tried others but I always come back to this one. (In fact, one is in the oven now)

Good, easy, tasty. I added some garlic and Italian seasoning and mine needed a few more minutes cook time even though I only used 1.4lbs ground turkey. Glad to find a recipe that used oats instead of bread.
