DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Crush the crackers. I use the food processor to get finer crumbs.
  • Mix the meat, soup, and egg together with the seasonings.
  • Add cracker crumbs until the texture is firm but not dry.
  • Press the meatloaf mixture into a loaf pan.
  • Bake until almost done.
  • Top with barbecue sauce and American cheese. Continue baking until sauce is heated, cheese is melted and meatloaf is done (160° on the meat thermometer).
  • Muffin variation: Divide meatloaf mixture into 6 even portions.
  • Press into large size muffin tin that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  • If adding a sauce, form a well in the top of each muffin.
  • Check baking time carefully, as the smaller size allows the dish to bake more quickly. I have found that baking time is reduced to about 35 minutes in this form.
