I had originally found this recipe via Paula Deen. It is a wonderful meatloaf for kids and picky eaters. I usually double this recipe because we both love this meatloaf and want left overs! This is the ONLY meatloaf I make these days!
In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck and the next 8 ingredients, mixing well.
In a small bowl, combine the ketchup and mustard. Stir 1/4 cup ketchup mixture into meat mixture, reserving the remaining ketchup mixture.
Press meat mixture into a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan or shape into a loaf and place on a rack on a broiler pan. Spread remaining ketchup mixture over the loaf. Bake 40 minutes. Top with French fried onions, bake another 10-15 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.
COOKS TIPS: I leave the onions off as I am allergic. You can use any kind of mustard you want, I use yellow and sometimes spicy brown. Use any kind of cheese you have on hand as well. I have doubled this recipe and instead of using 2 pounds of ground beef have added 1 pound ground pork.
