The KEY ingredient in this Easy Meatloaf recipe is Hunt’s Meatloaf Sauce.
I typically serve it with mashed potatoes and green beans.
I took this picture on my camera phone inside a Walmart so you could see exactly what it looks like.
It’s only $0.78 a can (you need just one per loaf), so it’s affordable too.
To begin, combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, reserving some of the sauce for later.
You can stir with a wooden spoon, or your hands.
I find I get a more thorough mix with my hands, but I do wear food grade gloves, because it gets messy (and I have weird allergies, to some ingredients)!
If you have a deep loaf pan, it should fit inside that for baking.
I have three teenagers who are varsity athletes in high school.
Two pounds of meatloaf doesn’t stretch far enough to feed them.
Even with sides and bread.
So, I am currently TRIPLING the recipe.
Instead of using 3 loaf pans, I just make a giant meatloaf on a baking sheet.
Before I give you the recipe (it’s on the can too), I’ll reveal my last Meatloaf Secret.
I use 1lb Ground Beef and 1lb Jimmy Dean Maple Flavored Breakfast Sausage instead of 2 lbs ground beef.
When I make this for friends, they can never figure out what my “secret” to amazing meatloaf is, and it’s very simple.
