Jerry's Meatloaf

Recipe by SrtaMaestra
READY IN: 2hrs 30mins




  • Crumble ground chuck into a large bowl.
  • Sprinkle onion soup mix over meat. Mix together with wooden spoon (or dig in and use your hands).
  • Add remaining meatloaf ingredients and mix well. Using your hands, while messy, works the best!
  • Add a little water (up to 1/4 cup) if the mixture seems too dry. This depends on the moisture content of the ground chuck & your own personal preference.
  • If possible, refrigerate for at least an hour, or overnight, before baking, to allow the flavors to blend.
  • Shape meat into a wide, flat loaf, and place in a 9 x 13 pan sprayed with cooking spray (makes cleanup easier).
  • Bake at 350 for 1/2 hour.
  • Meanwhile, combine sauce ingredients and mix well. Spread a thin layer of the sauce over the meatloaf after baking 1/2 hour.
  • Return meatloaf to oven for about 1/2 hour, or until done. The loaf will be more firm when done. If in doubt, cut in half and check to make sure it isn't pink in the center.
  • Serve hot, topped with more of the ketchup sauce, if desired.
