DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Put meat, french fried onions, and stuffing in bowl. Mix eggs, ketchup, and ranch dressing together separately (easier this way), then dump over other ingredients (meat, stuffing, onions). Mix all together. Shape into loaf (or whatever shape you want) and put on a cookie sheet. (Helps to line cookie sheet with tin foil first- easier clean up). Cover loosely with tin foil and bake 50-60 minutes. Remove foil and top with ketchup, or any topping sauce you like, for the last ten minutes.
  • Let cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting.
  • **I just want to note that in most ovens, the bottom of this loaf burns. I don't know why, I've tried and tried to keep it from happening to no avail. However, it doesn't matter, I just cut burnt part off, doesn't effect the rest of the loaf. Also, I don't use a loaf pan for this one, because it will be too greasy.
