Mom's Meatloaf

Megan Scott


As the title implies, this is my mother's own personal recipe for meatloaf. For those that like onion-less meatloaf, you've come to the right place; otherwise, onions can be added if you so desire.

pinch tips: How to Use a Meat Thermometer


4 (or 2 very generous portions)




1 lb
ground chuck or ground round
handful of salted crackers
seasoned salt
8-oz can tomato sauce
bottle of ketchup

Directions Step-By-Step

In a zip-lock bag, crush a handful of salted crackers. In a bowl, season the meat with some salt and seasoned salt, then pour cracker crumbs on top of meat. Use your hands to combine the meat and cracker crumbs, then add about half of the tomato sauce, again using your hands to combine the ingredients. Place the meat in a pan and flatten slightly, then pour the rest of the tomato sauce on top, making sure the sauce covers the entire top of the meat. Top with a couple of squirts of ketchup, again covering the entire top of the meat, then cook at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
