“Flavorful meatloaf without the cost of buying extra ingredients. Use what you have on hand. The priciest items would be the Beef and the dry Onion Soup packet. You could try it with Ground Turkey.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Tear soft bread into very small peices and toss into mixer. Add dry onion soup packet, and 1/4 cup flour. Run the mixer on medium to high until you have fine soft bread crumbs. This only takes a few minutes , and is the key to getting the loaf right. The crumbs may dry out a bit, this is desired. Add the beef, dry mustard, salt, pepper, and eggs into the mixture. Blend well until you have a dough-ish ball for the loaf. Press the meat mixture into a loaf pan, with a large indentation lengthwise down the middle of the loaf. Bake on 420 degrees F. for 34- 40 minutes or until loaf appears quite done. Drain off the loaf, the indentation may have collected some grease be sure to drain this off. Pour ketchup down the " ditch" or the indentation of the loaf, and return to the oven for about 8 minutes. The ketchup will have congealed a bit. Let the loaf rest a few minutes before serving.
