    Best meatloaf recipe ever!

    I tried this last night and I must say my meatloaf is not the best....LOL DD liked this one and I was impressed too....it didn't fall apart, good flavor, and so easy...

    1# hamburg
    1 pkg. stuffing mix (can be off brand) the kind that comes seasoning and stuffing
    1 egg
    1 cup water

    mix all together, form into loaf in a pan and bake 45 minutes....I think I always baked my meatloaf too long, no body ever liked it LOL

    Always good to find "the best" recipe!
    Looks like a good one to try sometime.

    Here's how I make my "best" meatloaf ever ... I form my meatloaf, set it on an upside down bowl in the crockpot and let it brew away! Setting on top of the bowl, lets the fats drain out, so that the meat doesn't swim in it!

    Ingredients are usually
    one lb. hamburg
    one egg
    a handful or two of bread crumbs
    seasonings.

    Usually when I make meatloaf, I make several at once, and put the extras in the freezer, ready to bring out and put directly into the crockpot for a quick-fix meal. Perfect for a day of quilting!!

    I am interested in this - as my mom (and me as her proxy cook) always made good meatloaf. We have tried many times and it isn't good. Of course my husband insists on buying ground chuck, we weren't that picky, we always bought hamburger. I remember hamburger, some oatmeal, seasonings, egg and tomato sauce on top. Couldn't remember how long we baked it. Now I think I will try again with plain ground hamburger and bread crumbs. Crock pot may help.

    MartiMorga ... I sometimes use oatmeal instead of the bread crumbs. Ketchup or BBQ sauce can also be nice toppings. The crock keeps it nice and moist and makes for a nice tender meatloaf too. Chopped onions and celery can be nice in the mix too.

    LilDinks2013 ... oooooh that has got to be good with cheese and all those mushrooms!

    My family got sick and tired of the same old tomatoey topped meat loaf recipe. So i had to come up with one on my own without the tomatos etc. I use to be a cook/housekeeper for a priest and i made this often for him and when he would have guests or church meetings. Never failed. When I retired, lol he wouldn't let me go until i gave him my recipe for his next cook. rofl.

    Okay, I just have to say how impressed I am, that y'all actually use recipes. I usually just throw stuff together, so that it's never exactly the same, twice in a row.

    Anyway, I've always used Progresso Italian breadcrumbs in meatloaf, along with an egg and whatever else I think of, while putting it together. Maybe a bit of Romano cheese . . . chopped onion . . . minced garlic . . . and whatever extra herbs/spices I happen to grab from the cabinet. Always used extra lean ground meat . . . and if the ground meat didn't look lean enough, I'd have the butcher put a lean roast through the grinder. I was never a fan of the tomato stuff on top, either.

    This is pretty much how I make meatloaf as well. Our grocery store sells a 'meatloaf mix' which is ground beef; pork; veal all mixed together. I use that as my base, use oatmeal vs breadcrumbs, 1 egg to hold everything together. Toss in whatever spices come to hand as well as chopped onion and minced garlic. Bake at 350 for somewhere around an hour - give or take, doesn't seem to matter. Never dry and usually quite tasty.

    I have to say, this was delicious. Tried it last week, the first recipe here, was posted on this board not long ago. Hubby loved it, he was tired of my old recipe which was my mom's (just tossed together). I did add onion as I can't eat a meatloaf without that flavor. This was really good and will probably be the one I make from now on. Next time though, am going to try a can of beef gravy or a packet and the water. Was also great in a hot dog bun as a sandwich, with the left overs.
