“I've only made this one time...2 days ago when I made it up. After writing it down I didn't remember using so much stuff or it taking so many steps! It's not really as involved as what it looks like written down and it really did turn out good. So far no meatloaf I've made has ever turned out exactly like the one before and I'm hoping to break the cycle by actually writing this one down...I'm sure ya'll can relate:) PS I used a mini food chopper in this but its not strictly necessary.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mini chopper process torn bread slices into fine crumbs, put in a bowl and cover fold in the milk or 1/2 and 1/2 and set aside.
  2. Process garlic with a pinch of salt to a fine mince and set aside.
  3. Add 2 tbsp butter to a saute pan and sweat onions and the garlic until soft and translucent. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Remove from heat and let cool.
  4. In a large bowl add all meats, egg, wet breadcrumbs, cooled onion and garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper (using smallest measurements to begin), thyme, McCormick blend, Accent and 1/2 can cream of mushroom soup. Gently work all ingredients together. If the mixture seems too wet add 2-3 tbsp oats or more processed bread.
  5. Make a mini burger using 1-2 tbsp of the meat and saute over med/medhi heat. Cook through and taste to adjust seasoning.
  6. Cover a large cookie sheet with foil and form a large evenly sized brick shape.
  7. Place in a 350°F oven, center rack for.
  8. 1 hour. Check for doneness and cook up to 10-20 minutes more until desired doneness.
  9. Gravy: While meatloaf is baking.
  10. In a saucepan melt 3 tbsp butter and add in 3 tbsp flour, cook until a light golden brown. Whisk in remaining 1/2 can of soup and sour cream until all blended. Add in 1 can of chicken broth and pinch of sugar. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring up to a boil to thicken, whisking, then reduce heat to simmer. If it doesn't seem thick enough for you, sprinkle with a bit of flour and whisk in quickly. When meatloaf is done, remove to a plate and cover with foil. Skim grease from the meatloaf drippings and whisk the degreased dripping to the gravy. Slice and serve with gravy.
