Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the hamburger, bread, eggs, onion, tomato sauce, salt and pepper into the bowl.
  2. Use your hands to mix and mash everything together. Continue until all of the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. Press this mixture into a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan, or another 2-quart size pan. Pack it tightly, by pounding on the surface a little with your hands, and smoothing it down so it's pretty on top.
  4. Bake at 350 ° for at least an hour. If the hamburger was cold from the fridge, cook it for 1-1/2 hours.
  5. Remove the meatloaf from the oven.
  6. Let it rest for a few minutes to firm up.
