Came out so good! On my first try.
Please forgive my very well-seasoned Pampered Chef Stoneware Loaf Pan? It's been years in the making. (Haha!) Here's a picture of what it looked like once upon a time.
I've made various different types of loaves throughout the years. This pan has been with me for well over 20 years at this point. Sounds like a lifetime ago!!! So, it's definitely worth the investment. Just make sure to follow its care instructions, and it will surely last you a long time as well. I happen to love mine very much.
I can't take full credit for this deliciousness. I originally got this recipe from Quite Simply Us' page. As with many recipes, you can easily make them your own. Below is their original recipe and I will let you know my very minor tweaks.
Momma's Meatloaf from Quite Simply Us
3 lbs. ground beef
2 cups milk
2 cups breadcrumbs
1 tbsp Worcestershire
2 packs onion soup mix (I used 1 diced onion)
1 tbsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 350℉
Mix all meatloaf ingredients together in a large bowl until well combined. Be sure to mix until JUST combined!
Whisk all sauce ingredients together in a small bowl.
Split meatloaf into two sections and place into two loaf pans.
Spread a liberal bit of sauce atop each meatloaf.
Bake for an hour to an hour and 15 minutes until temperature reaches 165℉.
Let rest for about 10 minutes prior to serving.
Serve with extra sauce, either slathered on top or for dipping.
I don't typically stick to a recipe, at least not completely. But, I must say that I kind of stuck to this one my first time around. For starters, I didn't have that amount of ground beef so I halved the recipe for us.
There were really only three differences. I saw that Lori mentioned that her mom used an onion instead of the onion soup mix. If you've seen my previous recipes, I like to keep things as basic and natural as possible so I did use the diced onion. (Though, if I must be honest, I think the added spices in the onion soup mix must give this recipe that extra oomph in taste.) I just might try using the onion soup mix at some point. I also added a couple of grated garlic to the meatloaf mix because I like adding fresh garlic to everything. (lol) The last difference was the meat. I got the meatloaf pack sold in the supermarket. If I remember correctly, it was beef, veal, and pork.
And that sauce! I was in a little bit of a rush when I made this so I didn't notice that I was supposed to add the glaze before cooking. (Oops!) I added it afterward. It still came out great. My granddaughter enjoyed this so much. The glaze, yummm. She loves ketchup! Typical 3-year-old. Love her so much!
Give it a try! And, please share this blog with your friends and family. Leave your comments below. I'd love to hear from you.
