READY IN: 2hrs 20mins




  • Mix well-egg, salt, pepper, cracker crumbs together.
  • Add ground Beef and onion.
  • Add 4 tbsp water (depending on consistency of meatloaf).
  • Form into a round flat on bottom loaf.
  • Bring 2 qt of water to a boil in a 4 qt pot.
  • Make a "zig zag snake" out of 2 ft aluminum foil-crinkled and formed into a zig zag snake about 1/2 tall Place foil "zig zag snake" on bottom of pot. Put meatloaf on top of foil snake. (this prevents it from burning on the bottom of the pan).
  • Add meatloaf to boiling water, cover, bring back to full boil. approx 15 minutes.
  • While meatloaf is cooking, peel and quarter potatoes.
  • Add potatoes around the sides of the meatloaf.
  • Medium boil for approx 20 minutes.
  • Drain off 1/2 water, discard.
  • Add tomato sauce, continue boiling until cooked down into gravy-like consistency, approx 45 min to hour.
  • Sauce will thicken from the potato starch in water, making a light tomato gravy.
  • Remove meatloaf from pot, place on large plate. Slice meatloaf.
  • Remove potatoes and place around meatloaf.
  • Serve the tomato gravy on side. We love this with steamed Brussels Sprouts and carrots.
