Mom’s BEST Meatloaf Recipe
Growing up in the South there were two main constants on the dinner entree menu….fried chicken and mom’s meatloaf! I LOVED meatloaf as a kid and my mom’s is the BEST meatloaf recipe I’ve ever tasted! There were a few years there where mom got experimental in the kitchen and her meatloaf turned out less than stellar…but she finally listened to my siblings and finally started making her classic recipe again. So that I can share the great meatloaf tradition with my family I just HAD to steal her recipe…and now I’m sharing it with you! 🙂
This is the perfect dish to make with mashed potatoes and a yummy Southern vegetable like Black Eyed Peas, Skillet Green Beans, or Summer Squash. And this dish heats back up perfectly….so make extra for leftovers! Hubs always loves having extras to take to work throughout the week. I remember my grandfather used to LOVE making leftover meatloaf sandwiches for his lunch!
1 Lb 90% fat free or higher lean ground beef
2 Slices of stale bread (I like to use the ends of the loaf that no one normally eats anyway)
10 Saltine Crackers
1 Large Egg
1 small/medium onion
1 Can of tomato soup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Tear bread apart into little bitty pieces in a bowl.
Crush and add saltines to bread.
Mix together bread, saltines, onions, meat, egg, and 1/2 of the can of tomato soup.
Place in loaf pan.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until inside temperature reaches 160 degrees.
Pour remainder of tomato soup across top of meatloaf and cook an additional 10 minutes.
