We really like this meat loaf. It is easy to prepare with no guesswork, moist and delicious, and it makes dynamite sandwiches the next day! I serve it with mashed potatoes and brown gravy. Sometimes I put a tomato glaze on the top. Served plain, with gravy, or glazed, this is a fine tasting meat loaf. I usually make two and freeze one to use later. Enjoy!

  • 1 1/2
    pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2
    cup of water
  • 1/2
    cup crushed buttery cheese crackers
  • 3/4
    cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1
    package dry onion soup mix
  • 2
    eggs beaten
  • 1/4
    cup of ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp
    a-1 steak sauce



  1. You will need one large mixing bowl and a small bowl for this recipe.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and get out your meat thermometer and keep it handy.
  3. Put the 1/2 cup of water in the large bowl. Add ground beef, crushed crackers, cheddar cheese, and the onion soup mix. Mix until well combined.
  4. In the small bowl beat the 2 eggs, add ketchup, and A-1 steak sauce and whisk smooth.
  5. Dump the small bowl egg mixture into the meat mixture and mix until evenly combined. I use my hands.
  6. Press into a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Bake in the hot pre-heated oven until the temperature of the meatloaf reaches 160 degrees or until no pink is in the center. Depending on your oven, this will take 45 to 60 minutes. Don't overcook.
  7. It is as easy as that, and you have a nice moist meat loaf for dinner. Enjoy!
