My grandmother was an AMAZING cook! She knew that the secret to great food had less to do with the ingredients and more to do with the cook!

How to Make Grandma's Meatloaf


  1. Mix all ingredients together by hand. (Do not "spoon." Really use your hands. It gives the mixture a much better texture.) Do not use any kind of bread or cracker crumbs. This is a loaf and not a bundle. If you mix it well; the egg acts as the stabilizer. Shape into a loaf according to the pan you use. (Our family prefers a square pan.) Cover with 1/4 inch of cold water and cook at 350 for 45 minutes to an hour. A meatloaf should be moist; not dry!
