Loaf of Meat
I found this recipe on the net a few years ago. It's easy, and
it's terrific. It is not, however, conducive to those who wish
to maintain an extremely healthy lifestyle. Still, you could use
ground turkey instead of beef, or a combination thereof.
You could actually serve this meatloaf to company, and all they'd
do is eat it, compliment you on how good it is, and continue to
respect you as a person. What they would not do, unless they're
overly cultured food snots, is criticize you for using canned
This should serve anywhere between three and six.
Ingredients -- Meatloaf
- 2 lbs hamburger
- 1 egg
- dash nutmeg (though I've never added this)
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 cup canned mushroom soup concentrate
- 1/2 cup onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/3 cup marinara sauce (or spaghetti sauce, or pizza sauce)
- 2 teaspoons seasoned salt (or use a mixture of salt, pepper, cayenne,
and celery seed)
Ingredients -- Sauce
- 1/2 cup canned mushroom soup concentrate (use the rest of the
- 3 oz mushrooms, sliced

- 1/4 cup drippings (from the meatloaf)

- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Mix all ingredients together well, shape into loaf, and put into
pan. If you use a roasting rack instead of a bread pan, the meatloaf
will be less greasy, and you can use some of the drippings to
make the sauce.
- Bake 20 minutes uncovered at 425 degrees. Turn down the oven to
375 degrees and continue baking uncovered for 55 minutes. (I've
had very good results starting at 375 and turning the oven up to 425 after 20 minutes.)
- To make the sauce, fry the mushrooms in the drippings and then
combine with mushrooms, mushroom soup, and sour cream. Heat this
mixture in a saucepan.
- Slice and serve the meatloaf with the sauce on the side.
