Amazingly Good Meatloaf-Connie's

Connie Ottman


There are a million ways to make meatloaf. Our family settled on this recipe many moons ago and it's always perfect. I'm not sure where the recipe came from but I remember mom making it when I was ten. It makes great sandwiches the next day...if there's any left:) Enjoy!

How to Make Amazingly Good Meatloaf-Connie's


  1. Mix eggs, onion, water, celery, salt and pepper in blender. Blend until celery and onion are chopped fine.
  2. Place ground pork and chuck into a large bowl. Mix together lightly. Too much mixing will toughen the meatloaf.
  3. Pour oats or crackers, shredded cheese and blender mix into bowl with ground pork and beef.
  4. Place whole bread slices in loaf pan.

    Mix meat thoroughly and pack firmly in loaf pan.
  5. Brush top with catsup or BBQ sauce. Our family likes the catsup.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
  7. When done, remove from oven and let stand five minutes before serving.
