Meatloaf - for the HUNGRY man

I learned to make this meatloaf at my grandmother's side with no measuring devices. It's taken some doing to translate it all into measurments! I hope you enjoy!

How to Make Meatloaf - for the HUNGRY man


  1. Preheat overn to 375 degrees
  2. mix all ingredients together in a bowl. (I put on gloves and knead it like bread dough, but a mixer would be fine too)
  3. press mix firmly into a cake pan. (I usually use 2 loaf pans, this requires cooking for 45 minutes, but you can also use 1 9x9 pan, which only requires cooking for 35 minutes)
  4. For extra zing, top with french fried onions or BBQ sauce or Ketchup before baking. But it's just fine on its own. I serve it with brown gravy and mashed potatoes, and we just pour the gravy across the meat and the potatoes at once.
