How to Make Meatloaf at Maggie's Place

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350.

    Lightly spray your baking dish. You can use a loaf pan, a pie pan or a rectangle baking dish. *** See Notes
  2. In a medium bowl place the ground beef, chopped onion and egg.

    Using your hands - after they are washed of course - mix those ingredients well.

    Crush the saltines - but not into a powder and gradually mix into the ground beef mixture.
  3. Add 1 small can of tomato sauce and mix thoroughly.

    If more is needed, gradually add small amounts of the 2nd can until your meatloaf is slightly moist.
  4. Place into your prepared pan.

    If desired you can "frost" your meatloaf with the remaining tomato sauce.

    Bake for 1 hour or until done.
  5. *** NOTES ***

    Do not use anything above an 80-/20 mix of ground beef as it will be too stiff when done.

    Form the meatloaf into any shape you would like and place it in your baking dish.

    Leave some space around it and when it is done cooking immediately remove it from the pan to get it out of the grease and let it sit for a few minutes before cutting.

    The taller you make your meat loaf, the longer it will take to cook so adjust your cooking time accordingly.
