My mom came up with this recipe years ago to help us eat better. I revised it when I couldn't eat tomatoes anymore.

I use Ritz crackers & lean ground beef, 93/7. Feel free to use any other crackers or 80/20. You can also use Hidden Valley® Salad Dressing and Seasoning Mix if you don't like the buttermilk version.

You can gently beat the egg before you add it to the meat mixture if you prefer.

  • 2Gently mix all ingredients in a large bowl with your hands. Don't overwork the meat or it will get tough as it bakes. Shape into a square or round loaf & place into pan.
  • 3Bake for one hour. Meatloaf is done when it's not pink inside. If it's not done at one hour, continue baking in 10 minute increments until done. Meatloaf will have a slightly crunchy crust on the outside when done.
