Simple Meatloaf

Here is another quick, economical & delicious recipe for you guys. This is my Mom's recipe. A lot of people like to fancy up their meatloaf, don't do it! Trust me, give this simple one a try, I promise it's really good! :)

Simple Meatloaf

1 lb Hamburger (ground beef)
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup ketchup
1 small onion, chopped up really good
Leftover bread (I like to use leftover hamburger buns, about 4 or 5 of them, or hot dog buns or sandwich bread), pulled apart into little pieces, stale bread works great for this!

Put everything into a glass meatloaf dish, or whatever glass baking dish you have. Squish it all up with your hands until it is mixed up really good. Press it into shape, like a loaf of bread. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes, or until it is done all the way through. Don't want any pink meat in there.

We like to serve it with some ketchup on top, with mashed potatoes. Or just let it cool a bit & slice it up & eat it as a sandwich with ketchup & cheese.

And if any of you don't have a Pampered Chef Chopper you really need one! Makes super quick work of chopping onions & other stuff. If you want to give one a try let Chan know, she sells them. :)

Thanks for the plug. That's much like my grandmother's recipe, which was the only meatloaf I'd eat. Only change was she used Lipton Onion Soup Mix (the dry stuff) instead of the onion...
