Super Easy Meatloaf

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Gehrig and Celias M

This is a super easy way to make a meatloaf. I actually made this recipe up from a roast beef recipe that was made by my sister-in-law. She had put Catalina Salad dressing over a roast and baked it, and it was super yummy, so I thought, why not put it in my meatloaf...and so, this is what I created. My husband is not a meatloaf person, but loves this one. I have other friends who have adopted this recipe as well, since it is so simple to make and yummy in the tummy!

I tried this because it looked close to the meatloaf my mom used to make when I was a kid. The Catalina dressing is the key! I added diced onions instead of onion powder, along with about a teaspoon of creole seasoning. It was very easy, and I like the flavor better than the catsup-sauced meatloaf recipes.
