Now that it’s fall and the weather is getting chilly I find myself looking for hearty meals. My go to hearty meal is always meatloaf. Meatloaf is such a good comfort food. Perfect for fall! This recipe is my mother’s and I always loved it when I was little. It was one of the first meals I ever made for my husband when we got married.
Over the weekend I took out my battered recipe card with my mother’s meatloaf recipe, although I have made it a hundred times I still like to have the recipe on hand. I couldn’t find the card so I called my mother to ask her for it. We talked for a few minutes about the recipe and she said, “You know you can always look on the back of the Lipton Soup Box.” My mouth dropped, I couldn’t believe me ears my mother’s special meatloaf recipe that I thought had been handed down for generations was the recipe off of the box! I was floored! Apparently my mother’s home-style meatloaf is really Lipton’s Souperior Meatloaf.
I am still laughing about it! Here it is anyway maybe not a family secret recipe but still a really good meatloaf. Over the years it has been modified slightly the ingredients are the same as Lipton’s but some of the measurements have changed.
- 2 lbs Ground Beef
- 1/3 cup Ketchup
- 3/4 cup water
- 3/4 cup bread crumbs
- 2 eggs
- 1 packet Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix (Dry)
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
- Combine all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix.
- On a 13X9 pan place the mixture in a loaf shape. You can also use a loaf pan, I like to use my Pampered Chef cooking stone
- Cook for one hour
- The best way to mix is to use you hands. For those of you with sensory issues this may be a problem. I usually wear a pair of rubber gloves to mix. Before we were married my husband worked on a ship and he always made meatloaf for the crew before he would come home. He insists making meatloaf is the best way to wash grease of your hands. Pretty disgusting needless to say he makes no meatloaf for me!
So simple to make and the leftover meatloaf makes great sandwiches the next day.
Laughed when I read about your husband “getting his hands clean”! Loved that you used a Pampered Chef stoneware pan to cook it on! 🙂
His hand cleaning protocol is a little suspect. Although he says it was the best meatloaf he has every had. LOL And of course I love my pampered chef baking stone it is great and I make everything on it!
Going to give it a try Jen! Thx…always looking for different versions of recipes. LOVED the Lipton soup part… Thanks for the chuckle! Too cute!
Let me know how you like it. It is really good even Grace likes it and she is finicky about her food. If you want I can have BJ come over and make it for you 😉
I love mom’s meatloaf!! I guess I should try to make it
Want to know something sad? I’ve never made meatloaf before since we rarely eat red meat. Maybe I should try this with ground turkey. Love the recipe!
No meatloaf… not so sad. I would love to hear how the recipe turns out with turkey meat. Sounds good. If you have any recipes you love feel free to message or email me. I would like to share on Monday Mealtime some great recipes from readers.
Leftover meatloaf also makes great sandwiches the next day. A little Miracle Whip on bread, a slice of cold meatloaf and you have your lunch. It really is good!
A leftover meatloaf sandwich sounds delicious. Great idea thanks.
