If you don’t like meatloaf then you might as well just go buy a cheeseburger.
What you’ll need:
- 3lb. of ground beef
- 3 eggs
- A sleeve of saltine crackers
- 1 medium onion (finely chopped, about 2 cups)
- A 15oz. Can of Tomato Sauce
- 1 T. Salt
- 1 t. Garlic Salt
- 1 t. Ground Black Pepper
- 2 t. Paprika
- about 6 T. Worcestershire Sauce (not pictured)
- about 3 C. of Ketchup (or Catsup if you like)
And a large shallow pan like a 9″x13″ baking dish
After you’ve crushed your crackers into a fine powder you’ll take that and the rest of your ingredients (excluding the ketchup and 4 T. of the worcestershire sauce) and mash them all together. You’ll end up breaking down and using your hands so just be sure to get an even mix all the way through. Start pre-heating your oven up to 400° F.
Form the meat into loaves and put them in an appropriately sized baking dish. Then throw (by throw I mean set gently) into the oven you heated to 400° F for 15 minutes so that the loaves set. While the loaves are in the oven we’re going to do something I forgot to take pictures of. Take the ketchup and the rest of the worcestershire sauce and mix it together in a bowl. This is what we’re going to goat the tops of these loaves with when they come out of the oven.
After fifteen minutes you’ll pull the loaves out of the oven and spread the mixture of ketchup and worcestershire sauce on top.
Lower the temperature of the oven to 350° F and put the loaves with sauce back into the oven for 60 minutes.
After 60 minutes pull the loaves out of the oven and serve. One loaf serves 4-6 people and the other loaf can be frozen and saved for later.
