Great Meat Loaf

Dennis Purcell


Meat loaf is always good as a meal with potatoes. I use some of the left overs in a cold sandwich or in a hot meat loaf sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy.

How to Make Great Meat Loaf


  1. in a large bowl add all ingredients except basil and brown sugar, mix thoroughly. Place in a load pan (I use a grease separating pan). Use the last 1/4 of the tomato soup and brown sugar mixed together and cover loaf, sprinkle with basil.
  2. cook in a preheated 375'F oven for 1 hour.
  3. I use Dei Fratelli tomato soup because it is glutton free. You can use tomato paste instead or use catsup without the corn syrup or cinnamon.
    I often add some green chilies or a can of drained Ro*Tel for a spicy loaf.
