Recipe by mare5345
READY IN: 1hr 50mins


  • 2
    lbs ground chuck or 2 lbs ground round
  • 6
    slices fresh bread
  • 12
    cup milk or 1/2 cup cream
  • 2
    eggs, beaten with the milk or cream
  • 1
    small onion, chopped
  • 12
    teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2
    teaspoons salt
  • 2
    teaspoons pepper
  • 1
    (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of chicken soup


  • put meat, bread (broken up in large pieces), both eggs beaten with the milk, onion, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • in a large bowl.
  • then mix about 1/2 the can of soup into meat mixture (if you are using 2 small cans mix 1 can into meat mixture).
  • mix thoroughly with VERY clean hands.
  • shape into a loaf (it will be soft, very mushy to be exact, a friend told me to say it is the consistancy of"tuna salad" or canned cat food") don't worry, it is a sort of flatter than most meat loafs.
  • Mix about 1 cup of water with remaining soup (if you are using the large can) and pour over loaf (or mix 1 cup water with the other small can and pour over loaf).
  • Bake at 375 degrees about 1 hour and 30 minutes (adding water periodically).
  • if the gravy looks too light -- cook for another 30 minutes -- it will never be too dry -- but the gravy will have a little more flavor -- keep scrapping down the sides.
  • It will be golden brown on top and you will have delicious gravy to use over rice or potatoes.
  • It is the best meat loaf you will ever eat (it is VERY moist and so delicious).
