Susan's Savory Meatloaf

This is based on my mother's recipe, although she did not use bread crumbs, but cracker crumbs. We don't buy crackers, but always have a couple of slices of bread available to turn into crumbs. I've even used pumpernickel crumbs - very good in this meatloaf!

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

1 Hr 10 Min

Ingredients

2 lb
ground meat - use one kind, or a combination of beef, pork, turkey, veal, whatever you have on hand.
1
envelope lipton onion soup mix
8 oz
tomato sauce
2
eggs, beaten
1 1/2 c
bread crumbs, any type
1/2 tsp
black pepper (or less to taste)
2 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2
Break the ground meat up into loose chunks. Mix in all the other ingredients well, but don't mix too hard, as it will make it too dense.
3
Form into a loaf shape in a pan that is about 1-2 inches bigger all the way around. Lining the pan with crinkled aluminum foil helps with the baking, and the cleanup. (Or, fill muffin cups with mixture.)
4
Bake: for whole loaf, 60-70 minutes. Use meat thermometer and cook to at least 165 degrees. For muffin tin, it only takes about 20 minutes.
5
Let cool slightly before slicing or removing from muffin pan.
6
If you want to top it with something, mix together 1-2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce and 1/2 cup ketchup and brush on during last 15 minutes of cooking.
