Dad's Meatloaf

Dad's Meatloaf created by Northwestgal

This is the meatloaf that I grew up on, and is pretty much the only meatloaf my friends and I will eat. Our family believes that less is more when making meatloaf so there is nothing strange in it that anybody would object to, unless they just do not like beef. The onion powder is for children and people who say that they don't like onions because of the texture. However, if you actually like onions feel free to substitute real onions chopped fine.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Combine all of the ingredients except for the ketchup. It is easiest to just mix it up with your hands.
  • Form into two loaves.
  • Spread ketchup over the top of each loaf, and wrap each in foil sealing the foil tightly without squishing the meatloaf. Note: Sealing the foil slows the cooking time, which is why it takes so long to cook, but it also keeps the meat from drying out.
  • Line a baking pan with foil, and place the foil wrapped loaves in it.
  • Bake for 1 hour 45 minutes.
  • Poke holes in the foil that is wrapped around the meatloaf and let any grease drain out into the pan while baking another 15 minutes.

    This is a very good meatloaf recipe, MistyCat82, both tasty and moist. And it's quite easy to prepare, too. Wrapping the loaves in foil did keep it quite moist throughout the lengthy cooking time. But I think it would have benefitted from additional seasonings, maybe basil, oregano and garlic, or perhaps fresh peppers for a little kick. I forgot to top the two loaves with ketchup (but I don't really think that detracted from the taste at all). Made for the Spring 2014 Pick-A-Chef event.
