Lance's Favorite Home-Cooked Meatloaf

Submitted by: MEOWSERS333

Introduction

I've made meatloaf from scratch and it tastes great, but this is a quick cheater recipe to just hurry up and get it on the table. You can mix the ingredients and put it in a loaf pan covered with saran wrap in the refrigerator overnight, then pop it in the oven when you're ready to cook it.

Ingredients

    Ground beef, 1 lb. (feeds 7-8) (I use the leanest, but you can go for 80% lean and drain off the extra fat)
    Onion Soup Mix, 1 packet
    Tomato Sauce, 1 can
    Bread Crumbs (these can be plain or Italian seasoned)
    Egg, 1 Fresh
    Ketchup, 0.5 Cup
    Dried Parsley, about 3 Tbl.

Tips

Personally I think the onion soup mix has plenty of salt, so I do not add any. I've spruced the recipe up a little by adding a tsp of cayenne to the loaf mix. I'm not a fan of bell peppers, but I know of some people who like to add them. You can add texture to the loaf by replacing the tomato sauce with diced or stewed tomatoes. You can make it without the ketchup. There is sugar in ketchup and my son likes the taste on top so I add it, but it can be easily eliminated.


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine ground beef, egg, onion soup mix, half of the tomato sauce, and bread crumbs. Mix well and place in a loaf pan (no need to grease the pan). I have a ceramic one I use alot and love it. Bake for one hour at 350 degrees. After one hour, pull out loaf and mix ketchup with remaining tomato sauce and pour over the top. Sprinkle parlsey flakes on top and bake for another 15 minutes.
