I was thinking of what to make for supper yesterday, so I thought I got some things on hand, I will throw together a meatloaf, nothing fancy, just plain ole meatloaf, I don't get into all the fancy items one may put in there meatloaf. I stick to the basic and with 2 picky teens nothing fancy is just what they like, they seem to love my basic meatloaf. So I think I will stick to my basic easy meatloaf, as it is a hit with my family.:)
Basic Easy Meatloaf
2 and half pds lean ground beef
small pepper and some onion (depending on how much you like)
1 package ( as in package I mean 1 of the 4 that come in the box) of regular saltine crackers adding a few more if necessary-I have used Ritz crackers too and that is also good
ketchup after I have my mixture mix together I add ketchup and mix it in too
After you place in pan form out your meatloaf mixture, I use baking pan not loaf pans thats just me I then add bacon on top (optional)
You can add strips of bacon on top to flavor into your meatloaf, however I did not have any when making my meatloaf this time so I had to pass by that ingredient this time
So I take my meat, pepper, onion mix together then add crackers and mix together, and eggs and mix, and then pour ketchup all over top, mix together. After you put in your baking pan and form your meatloaf add a lil ketch up on top. Bacon too if you have it :) I also add ketch up after it is done cooking on top our family likes ketchup on everything, and serve
Trust me your hands will be messy all through this recipe..:)
Bake at 350, for about 2 hours, depending on your stove.
There you have it my quick, throw together meatloaf I made, nothing fancy, but it sure was good.
Thanks for stopping by and please follow my blog, I really need some friends.
