How to Make Ann Landers Meatloaf, Grandma W


  1. Mix. Put in loaf pan. Cover with strips of bacon. Pour tomato sauce on top. Bake at 350 degrees 1 hour.
  2. Notes: I made this Sept 22, 2018, with some alterations. They are as follows:
    3 pounds hamburger
    1 packet Lipton onion soup mix
    1/2 c ketchup and 1/2 cup tomato basil spaghetti sauce (Cause I ran out of ketchup)
    3 eggs
    2 1/4 c Italian style bread crumbs (added more as it was too moist to bind, so add as needed)
    accent sprinkled on top rather than measured
    3/4 c warm water
    almost a full bag of the soft bacon bits, mixed in rather than bacon on top
    Omitted the tomato sauce on top as well.
    It took longer to cook through, and came out so moist and tender it was difficult to keep into slices. Cover the top with foil when it starts to brown so it doesn't overcook and burn.
  3. Nov 21, 2018 in NC I separated this into 2 pans. It took literally 45 minutes to cook along with the potatoes at the different temperature.
  4. March 25, 2019 made with all ketchup, herb and garlic liptons, and entire 15 oz kroger Italian breadcrumbs. From now on, making in 2 9x13s.
