Simple Meatloaf

"I decided to try to make a very basic meatloaf, one that I knew I couldn't mess up. I am so tired of loving my cooking and having to force the kids to eat. I think that this was just right. We had plain cheese ravioli with butter with this. I would recommend trying them as a side at your home too."

Ready In:
1hr 10mins




  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Crush or grind dry stuffing into bread crumbs, I used my food processor.
  • Pour crumbs into a large mixing bowl and add eggs, milk, salt and pepper, steak sauce.
  • Let stand for about 5 minutes.
  • Mix in meat, onions and celery.
  • Mix very well.
  • Transfer to a good baking pan, I use a small cast iron pot with a lid, pat down and cover with a lid or foil.
  • Bake for about 30-40 minutes.
  • Remove lid and top with sauce.
  • Return to oven and bake uncovered for 15 minutes longer.
  • I have to turn down the heat at this point so that it doesn't get too crunchy on the edges (225°F is warm enough).
  • Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minute.
  • Enjoy.

I live in the northeastern US I am a stay at home mom. My kids are 11, 9, 3.5, and 1.5 My hubby is back from his 3 month internship in MA. We all went to see Boston, for some reason the people of MA don't feel the need to post rout markers on their highways. I am accustomed to knowing every 10th of a mile what highway I am on and where on it I am. Thank goodness for audio books, but if I ever have to listen to Charlie and the Chocolate factory again I may do Eric Idle some form of spam induced harm. (Just kidding don't turn me in to the men in white coats yet.) I used to say that I have too many favorite cook books to list, but now I will have to say that Recipezaar is my favorite cookbook. We have implemented a rule at the book store, we cannot buy another cook book until we make at least one thing from the last one we bought. I would love to move somewhere truly interesting, or at least to travel. Don't get me started on my pet peeves. I have removed them because they were too grouchy, I really am a happy person so lets just say I think people need to think more, have more self respect, more respect and responsibility to others and to dress and behave like civilized people should. Also if you live in a big city, please let people merge on the highway.
