My husband loves this meatloaf recipe. To be honest I'm not sure if my mother made this up or how it came about. He gets tired of the regular meatloaf so from time to time this is his request. Actually it is more requested than the regular recipe with tomato ketchup or paste on top. Hope you like it!
Combine ground beef, onion, crushed saltines, egg, flour, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Transfer to a baking dish that has been greased and shape in to a meatloaf. Bake on 350 degrees until you don't see any pink juices running out.
Cut up potatoes and Carrots and place them around the meatloaf. I let them cook until they are just about done. Take a heaping tables spoon full of flour and spoon around the carrots and potatoes after they have cooked a while. Pour the can of mushroom soup over the top with a can of water and mix around. Salt and pepper and then place back into the oven and let bake covered until gravy is made and vegetables are done. This takes a while to make but it is well worth it. Serve over hot rice. This makes a meal in one.
Just a note I always bake this with foil over it from beginning to end. I just keep checking it.
