A call to plan of action one day, I wanted to make my man happy with a good home cooked meatloaf. I decided I had to pull together what was the easiest and what I thought went into a good meatloaf recipe. Breadcrumbs, eggs, onions, and of course beef. Looked in the pantry and found a perfect match! A stuffing mix and dry beef/onion soup mix! Ta-Da!! So easy, I had to call it "Caught'cha Cheatin' Meatloaf." There's only a few steps -It's So easy.
Preheat oven to 350º. Combine all ingredients. I mixed by hand, although I use clean, handy, food grade gloves.
Bake 1 hour or until done. After cooking, let it rest a minute while you prepare ketchup topping: Simply add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar to ketchup and spread on top of meatloaf. Put back in warm oven (while it's turned off and cooling down). It will be warm enough to just thicken sauce without burning it.
Remove from oven after about 10-15 minutes, and serve.
