Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix well-egg, salt, pepper, cracker crumbs together.
  2. Add ground Beef and onion.
  3. Add 4 tbsp water (depending on consistency of meatloaf).
  4. Form into a round flat on bottom loaf.
  5. Bring 2 qt of water to a boil in a 4 qt pot.
  6. Make a "zig zag snake" out of 2 ft aluminum foil-crinkled and formed into a zig zag snake about 1/2 tall Place foil "zig zag snake" on bottom of pot. Put meatloaf on top of foil snake. (this prevents it from burning on the bottom of the pan).
  7. Add meatloaf to boiling water, cover, bring back to full boil. approx 15 minutes.
  8. While meatloaf is cooking, peel and quarter potatoes.
  9. Add potatoes around the sides of the meatloaf.
  10. Medium boil for approx 20 minutes.
  11. Drain off 1/2 water, discard.
  12. Add tomato sauce, continue boiling until cooked down into gravy-like consistency, approx 45 min to hour.
  13. Sauce will thicken from the potato starch in water, making a light tomato gravy.
  14. Remove meatloaf from pot, place on large plate. Slice meatloaf.
  15. Remove potatoes and place around meatloaf.
  16. Serve the tomato gravy on side. We love this with steamed Brussels Sprouts and carrots.
