Food Friday: Meatloaf (Makes 2)

I mentioned last week that I have a meatloaf recipe that makes two meatloaves and I wanted to share it with you today.  This recipe came from a friend.  She brought this to a Sunday School potluck and my husband really liked it.  At that point I knew I had to get the recipe because he rarely tries something new and likes it.  I usually serve one for dinner and freeze the rest for another day.  I've also been known to freeze it in individual slices so that I have a quick meal ready for the kids.


3 lbs hamburger (the leaner the better)
2 tsp salt (more or less to taste)
2 tsp pepper (more or less to taste)
2 Tbsp dried minced onion
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 slices of bread, crumbled

Mix all ingredients together with your hands, then split in half to make two loaves.  Form the loaves in a 13x9 pan.  Make them as flat as possible or the middle will not cook but the edges will be dried out.  Top with sauce.


3/4 cup ketchup
6 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp Worstershire sauce
2 Tbsp mustard

Mix all together and spread over meatloaves.  Cover pan with foil and bake at 375 for 45 minutes to an hour.

I like to make a little extra sauce and use for dipping.  Kids seem to enjoy dipping and this is a great dip to have on hand.
