How to Make Meatloaf Surprise
- Preheat oven to 375.
- In large bowl, place the beef. Add the beaten egg. Sprinkle the packet of seasoning in the bowl. Add 1/2 cup of the ketchup. Mix with your hands.
- Place the mixture in a loaf pan. (If you use a high fat content beef, consider using a bit of wadded foil or other mechanism to keep the beef away from the fat).
- Place in oven for 45 minutes. While it is cooking, mix the remaining 1/4 cup ketchup and 1/4 cup of Chili sauce in a small bowl.
- Remove loaf from oven after 45 minutes. Spoon the ketchup/chili mixture over top of loaf. Return to oven for 15 minutes. Dig in!
