As with a lot of my recipes, this was handed down from my grandmother, to my mother, and then to me (and my siblings). This recipe has always been a staple in our household and we LOVE it! I love all kinds of meatloaves, but nothing beats grandma's!

How to Make Grandma's Meatloaf

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°.
  2. Mix wet ingredients in a mixing bowl with vegetables.
  3. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
  4. Pour dry ingredients into mixing bowl with wet ingredients and mix together.
  5. Place meatloaf mixture on a greased cookie sheet. I like to cook my Meatloaf on a cookie sheet rather than in a meatloaf dish (more room for that yummy caramelized ketchup!). I spread it somewhat thin (perhaps an inch high) and then smother in ketchup to taste. I use enough ketchup to get it nice and caramelized and still have a slight bit of juiciness underneath.
  6. Put on the lower oven rack and cook for 1 1/2 - 2 hours until meat is thoroughly cooked and ketchup is nice a caramelized.
