    Long Time Family Meatloaf Recipe

    1 lb. ground beef

    1 egg

    1 pkg. crackers, crushed or 1 c. bread crumbs, plain or flavored

    1 med. onion, chopped

    1 med. green pepper, chopped

    1/2 c. chopped celery

    1 med. apple or pear, chopped

    1 tsp. pepper, black or red

    1 tsp. low sodium salt

    Ketchup or barbecue sauce

    Your favorite cheese

    3 slices bacon (optional)

    Place all of the ingredients in a large bowl, except for the bacon. Now, here comes to fun part. Pretend you're a little kid again and squish everything together. It fells real gooey between your fingers. After you have had enough fun place half the mixture in a small rectangular baking dish. Place the slices of cheese on to the mixture and then place the rest of the mixture on top of the cheese.

    If you choose you can place the bacon on top of the meatloaf. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the mixture in the oven and bake for about 1 hour.

    Remove from oven and allow to cool for a couple of minutes.

    Really Good Meatloaf

    2 lbs ground beef

    1/2 lb ground pork

    1 onion, minced

    1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic (or use 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder)

    1/2 cup chili sauce or ketchup (or use 1/4 cup of each!)

    1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs (more if needed)

    1/4 cup milk

    2 eggs, slightly beaten

    3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

    1-2 teaspoon dried oregano

    2 teaspoons dried basil

    2 teaspoons seasoning salt (can use white salt)

    Black pepper


    1/2-3/4 cup ketchup

    Brown sugar (start with 2 tablespoons and add in more to taste)

    Set oven to 350 degrees.

    Prepare a 9 x 5-inch baking pan and a baking sheet covered with foil to place underneath to catch any drippings.

    Using clean hands mix together all meat loaf ingredients until well combined in a large bowl (adding in a little more breadcrumbs if needed).

    Pack the mixture into prepared pan.

    Place the pan on a foil-lined baking sheet to catch any spills.

    Bake for about 1 hour.

    Mix together ketchup with enough brown sugar to taste (start with 2 tablespoons adding in as much brown sugar as you desire to reach desired sweetness).

    After the 1 hour of baking, remove the meat loaf (at this point you can carefully drain off some of the fat if desired) and spread the ketchup/brown sugar mixture over the top.

    Place back in the oven and bake for another 15-20 minutes, or until the meat loaf is pulling away from the sides of the pan.


    Another Really Good Meatloaf

    1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef

    1/2 cup crushed buttery round crackers

    3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

    1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix

    2 eggs, beaten

    1/4 cup ketchup

    2 tablespoons steak sauce

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Stir the ground beef, crushed crackers, Cheddar cheese, and onion soup mix in a large bowl until well combined. Whisk the eggs, ketchup, and steak sauce in a separate bowl until smooth. Mix the eggs into the meat until evenly combined, if the mixture seems too dry, add a little water. Press into a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

    Bake in preheated oven until the meatloaf reaches 160 degrees F (71 degrees C) and is no longer pink in the center, 45 to 60 minutes.

    Enjoy! ~-~

    yes. Take and make any meatloaf recipe and prepare as directed. Upon completion of the meatloaf, allow it to cool and then dump it in the backyard for the dog. Go to the store and buy a T-bone steak and cook it on the grill. You can pretend you are eating meatloaf if you like.

    I make my meatloaf with groung beef, onions, garlic, and green peppers. I chop a little bit of onion, green pepper, and garlic and mix it in the ground beef. I put it in a glass pan and put a thin layer of ketchup on top then stick it in the oven till thoroughly cooked. Great to eat with corn and/or mashed potatoes.

    I never have leftover meatloaf and it was taught to me by my grandma...this makes a med meatloaf if you need it bigger just double everything.....take a piece of whole wheat bread put it in a bowl, pour 1/4 cup milk on it and crack a egg and add it to the bread mix, moosh it all up and mix it up make sure the bread is well soaked and in little pieces...add your spices, (remember to watch the salt, because of the catsup and other things added it will be more salter when it cooks) to mine I add, spike(you can get it at health food stores it is a wonderful healthy spice that goes well with anything) if you cant find it you can get it at fresh or powder garlic, any kind of spices you like, I dont like pepper or salt, spike does me well...if you dont want to mess with alot of spices just add a dry onion soup mix to it and delete the all works... use the spices you like, add 1/2 cup of catsup (1/4 cup of salsa mild if you want.) 1/4 cup chopped onion 1/2 cup chopped carrots(optional) to mix and mix up all the ingredients, add 1lb of ground burger and mix in very well, put in baking pan and smear on top a good layer of catsup about 1/4 in deep and if you would like a couple of bacon strips raw...put in at 350 for 35-45 min and you will have a hit on your hands, I never have to put it away..hope it helps
