This was my Dad's favorite meatloaf recipe. It came from an old Betty Crocker cookbook. It was the first meal I ever made.

This is a wonderful classic meatloaf! The best thing about it was how moist it was - very tender, not dry at all and not greasy (I did drain off the fat before topping with the ketchup but that's to be expected for any meatloaf). Great comfort food - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall Pick-A-Chef 2011

This was good. It's the kind of meatloaf I like and it uses ingredients that I have at home all the time. I used dried chopped onion for the fresh onion just because I was lazy and I added extra Worcestershire, garlic powder, and some extra bread crumbs (I used Italian seasoned crumbs). My son will be taking some to school tomorrow in a meatloaf sandwich too. Thanks!
