I think my meatloaf is very good, here's my recipe:


2 pounds 80/20 chop meat
2 eggs beaten
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp. BBQ sauce
1 Tbsp. mustard
1 packet beef bullion
1 Tbsp. Worcestshire sauce
1 tbsp. onion powder


Mix all together and free form it into a loaf on a baking sheet. I spread either ketchup or BBQ sauce on top before baking (not a lot just a little.) Bake on 350 for 1 hour, if still too rare in the middle cook a bit longer.


I also saw on the back of a box of stove top stuffing a recipe for meatloaf using the stuffing mix. Haven't tried it yet.

don't you take away my ketchup LOL If it's punishable by a prison sentence to use it then I guess I am getting life without parole.

I'd start checking at 45 minutes. No sauce on top. But the exact proportions of the spices I am not sure of. I tasted until it tasted right and was it ever right.
Sometimes that's what's wrong with my meatloaf. I never make it the same way twice.

Thinking about this thread, I suspect if you took a recipe for porcupine balls and just made that in a loaf pan, you'd end up with something good. Porcupine balls are always good, it seems no matter who makes them.

Exactly! I've made a few really good ones, but then the next time...not so much.

Okay - I will tell you. I don't measure anything. I use chopped meat (usually about a pound and a half to two pounds), add 2 eggs, 1 can of Cream of Golden Mushroom soup (I don't use the whole can unless I'm making the full 2 pounds), garlic & onion powder, salt & pepper (not too much salt as the soup is salty), basil and parsley and Italian flavored bread crumbs. I don't use a whole of bread crumbs, just enough to make it stick together. I cook at 350 for about an hour, a little more if I'm making 2 pounds.


If you like a really dry, firm meatloaf you might not like this but I prefer a moist meatloaf. I've had people who tell me that don't like meatloaf love this one.

though I can't begin to tell anyone how much of what I use, I did give my basic recipe a few days ago. Now, I did something a little different the other night and it was yummy we thought: I used mushroom soup like I have in the past from time to time; I didn't use quite an entire can and just put it on top. I used ground turkey instead of beef or beef and sausage like I often do and I added a jalapeno, a little cumen and used crushed potato chips.
