Okay, I haven’t tested it on the whole world, but this meatloaf, my meatloaf, has been tested and proved to be satisfying to even the meatloaf loathers of my life. It is the perfect mix of sweet and savory, moist and juicy. It is a family pleaser from the daddy down to the baby. It is quite possibly the only meal that no one in my family complains about.
I am going to try to share more of our family favorites. Mostly because I want them documented here, but also so you can try them too and tell me if you love them. ;) My meatloaf recipe I get asked for all the time from friends, so it was time for me to get it on here.
The best part about this recipe is that it is simple- I can always remember it off the top of my head- and I keep all of the ingredients on hand.
World’s Best Meatloaf:
1 lb ground beef
1 egg – beaten
1 small onion, chopped fine (or frozen chopped onion in a pinch!)
1 packet lipton onion soup mix
3/4 c. plain bread crumbs (I used progresso or panko)
3/4 c. cheese
3/4 c. milk
a little drizzle of Worcestershire
ketchup or BBQ sauce
Knead all ingredients together and form a loaf
Place loaf on greased baking sheet
Smother loaf with the glaze
Bake at 350 for 1 hour
Once it’s done, slice it up and serve!
Tonight I served it with our favorite steamed carrots. A little sprinkle of dill is my trick. My girls love them.
Ta-da! An easy and delicious week-day meal.
