Not Your Ordinary Mystery Meatloaf

If you're strugglin' with what to make for dinner tonight, here's an easy recipe that's simply delicious. Easy Meatloaf. It's from allrecipes.com (love that site!) and it's easy, hence the name.




Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup dried bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1/3 cup ketchup

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the beef, egg, onion, milk and bread OR cracker crumbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste and place in a lightly greased 5x9 inch loaf pan, OR form into a loaf and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish.
  3. In a separate small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard and ketchup. Mix well and pour over the meatloaf.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour.


I made this the other night and we all gobbled it up. A few changes I made were--I added Panko bread crumbs, onion powder (since I didn't have any onions on hand) and added this amazingness.


If you've never tried Jane's before, it's a must. It jazzes up anything from burgers to chicken to veggies to pretty much anything you'd put salt on. Which is everything in my book. It's love at first bite, let me tell ya. So I sprinkled it in my meatloaf and it turned out scrumptiously. Give meatloaf a second chance people! This recipe will not bring back horrible memories of elementary school hot lunches--I promise.

  1. We love Krazy salt! Been using it for years. And I just discovered our favorite meatloaf recipe this last year. The basic is pretty much what you posted (or in place of an onion use a packet of dry onion soup mix). But instead of the ketchup topping, I place a few strips of bacon across the top then a can of cream of mushroom soup. If using a covered roasting pan, you can also chunk up potatoes & carrots to bake along with it. YUM!!!
