The flavor of Salisbury Steak takes me back to my childhood. To be honest, it is a TV Dinner memory. I made up this meatloaf to relive the wonderful onion flavor that Salisbury Steak imparts. It is quite simple and delicious.

Ingredients

2 c
fresh white breadcrumbs (cut in to small cubes) (no crust)
1 can(s)
10.5 oz french onion soup (i use campbell's)
4 Tbsp
tomato sauce (divided)
2 Tbsp
milk
2 Tbsp
worchestershire sauce
2 large
eggs (beaten)
1 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
black pepper
1 tsp
dry whole leaf thyme (crushed)
4 tsp
dehydrated onion flakes
1 tsp
garlic powder
2 lb
ground beef chuck 80/20
5 slice
thin cut bacon
1/2 c
water
1 Tbsp
cornstarch

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Measure 4 tbsp of the onion soup and 2 Tbsp of the tomato sauce in a large bowl. Add the breadcrumbs, eggs, milk, worchestershire, onion flakes, and the remaining seasonings . Stir to mix well. Let sit 10 minutes to allow the bread crumbs to soak up the liquids.
2
Gently mix in the 2 pounds ground beef chuck. Do this by working with your hands. Do not over mix or the meatloaf will be tough.
3
On a baking sheet (jelly roll pan), that is lined with non-stick foil, form the meat mix in to a loaf about 3x3x10. Wrap the loaf, lengthwise with the bacon slices.
4
Bake the meatloaf in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes. The last 10 minutes turn the oven up to 425 degrees to get the bacon a little crispier.
5
Let the meatloaf rest, uncovered on the counter for 30 minutes before slicing. While it is resting, make the gravy.
6
To make the gravy, place the remaining can of French Onion Soup, the other 2 Tbsp of tomato sauce, the water and the cornstarch in a small sauce pan. Heat until it comes to a boil, stirring constantly.
7
Serve the meatloaf with a little of the sauce on top.
