Asked my Dad during my recent visit to Virginia – “All right Dad – what would you like me to make for you while I’m here?”  meatloaf 2“MEATLOAF” he replied!  That’s where it all started.  I made one – ONE – much to my brother’s dismay.  “Why only one?  What about leftovers?  What about sandwiches?”  Silly me.  One meatloaf?  If your family likes this favorite…here’s my recipe.  I hope you enjoy.  Oh – and you can thank Gale Carlos for nagging me until I put it online! 😉

  • If your market carries it – get 1 large package of the ground beef, turkey and pork combo.  Publix here sells a trio…if not –
  • 1 package each of ground beef, pork and turkey (should have about 1.5-2 lbs of meat altogether!)
  • 1 sleeve saltine crackers – crushed
  • 1/2 bottle of Heinz chili sauce
  • 1 small can of tomato sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup of Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1 package Lipton Onion Soup Mix

Mix everything together well in a large bowl, if it seems too ‘wet’ add a little more breadcrumb to the mix.  Spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray and fold mixture into pan smoothing out the top.  Spread a thin layer of chili sauce over the top.  Bake at 350 for an hour and fifteen minutes or until done in the center.

If your family is like mine – make two or they’ll bug you until they have sandwich fixings!  If you’re like my brother – have a bottle of ketchup ready.  Everyone else likes it the way it is or with mashed potatoes and gravy! (That’s Katie’s favorite way!)

Enjoy!
