I know. Meatloaf. It’s not super exciting nor is it pretty. BUT it’s been one of the things I’ve made my family in my nearly 30 years of marriage at least once a month. Think of it as an elevated hamburger! When our son lived at home, he devoured this meatloaf, and I would always make it with my Mac & Cheese. It’s an easy, quick, weeknight meal and it’s filling for those growing girls and boys that may have a large appetite. If you have leftovers, you can make meatloaf sandwiches the next day! This recipe can be easily doubled; you can also do 1 lb beef and 1 lb ground turkey and your kids will never know!
What you will need:
- 1 lb hamburger meat
- 1 egg
- 1 package of Lipton onion soup
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- 1 small can of tomato sauce
Step by step:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Get a large bowl and break up your hamburger meat.
Add the egg, tomato sauce, soup mix, bread crumbs and salt and pepper. (I use about two teaspoons of salt and a teaspoon of pepper). Then the best way is to just get your hand in there and mix it all together.
Once it’s all mixed and starts to hold it’s shape, place in a loaf pan that you sprayed with cooking spray.
Then put it on a center rack in the middle of the oven. If you’ve doubled this recipe, you might want to put a cooking sheet beneath it so if juices run over, you don’t have a mess in your oven. Bake for 45 minutes for medium well. If you doubled, you may need to leave it in for another 15 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes, then slice and serve. Done ✅
