The worlds greatest meatloaf
I am serious when I say, the world’s greatest meatloaf recipe. It is moist, a wonderful blend of flavors, and best of all you drape bacon on the top. Do I need to say more? There’s also a surprise ingredient that you would not have expected.
I know some of the ingredients are going to sound sort of strange, however, it will blow your taste buds senses.
Grab your bowl, and add everything but the bacon.
Mix till blended, but don’t over mix. It will be a tougher meatloaf and we don’t want that.
So now just dump it into a baking dish, I normally use a deep casserole dish. Smooth the top and cover that bad boy in bacon. I normally put bacon on it but I ran out.
Bake for an hour, add some potatoes to cook in the oven.
Temp: 350 F Cook time: 60 minutes Skill level: Beginner
2 lbs ground beef
1/2 – 3/4 cup of Italian style bread crumbs
1/2-l lb of bacon
1 TSP garlic powder
1 TSP Onion Powder
1 TBSP Pepper
Pinch of salt (salt to your liking)
1 can of Campbell’s tomato soup
Grab your favorite mixing bowl and add the ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, salt, and mix in about 3/4 the can of tomato soup (this part depends on if you like a dry meatloaf or if you like a moist meatloaf then add the whole can). Mix till everything is blended (don’t over mix).
Now pick out a baking dish, I normally go for a deep casserole dish, but it’s whatever your preference is and what’s going to fit your meatloaf. Once you have it in the baking dish take the bacon and cover your meatloaf with it, sometimes I lattice it on the top, makes it look pretty.
Bake in the oven for an hour but I do suggest throwing a couple of russet potatoes in the oven with your loaf.
I promise you will never look for another meatloaf recipe ever again. Sometimes I even make them into mini loaves with this pan. Pairs quite well with my homemade wine.
