    My favorite meatloaf is still my mom's from when I was a kid.....I don't even know the exact measurements...she just always did it...& I do too.

    about 1 1/2 pounds gound beef
    about 1 cup of oatmeal (not instant, real oatmeal)
    1 egg
    an onion chopped very fine
    a bit of minces garlic
    a few squirts of ketchup to paste it all together

    mush it all together, form into a loaf, create a crease down the middle...pour some more ketchup.....

    cook at 350 until done (usually about 60-70 minutes)

    I never used to measure & just added stuff "until it looks right" as my grandmother would say. But a few years ago I started writing out DS's favorite recipes for DDIL, so I made a point of at least trying to measure for my meatloaf. The one thing I never got a measure for was the bread crumbs. :confused3

    Meatloaf
    1 lb ground beef (I use 90% lean)
    1 egg, beaten
    ¼ c? ketchup or BBQ sauce
    1 - 2 Tbl A-1® sauce
    1 Tbl? Parmesan cheese
    2 - 3 tsp? Worcestershire sauce
    several drops, maybe 1/8 tsp Liquid Smoke®
    ½ tsp cardamom
    ½ tsp coriander
    ¼ tsp ginger (dry, ground)
    1 tsp garlic powder
    bread crumbs

    Mix everything together except bread crumbs until evenly distributed. Add bread crumbs until you can make a loaf out of it without having it stick to your hands. I'm guessing at least ¼ cup. I usually have to add several times until it "looks right".

    I'm another who doesn't have a recipe.

    Combine:
    about 1 1/2 lbs ground beef (I use lean)
    1 lb. sausage
    instant rice
    milk (or evaporated milk)

    Squish the meats together until well mixed. (Add some milk until it is easier to mix.) It's okay if it's a little more wet than normal meatloaf because the rice will absorb the extra moisture. Then shake in a bunch of dry rice, maybe a cup? Mix it in really well. Dump in a baking dish and form a loaf with wells around the edges for the oils to cook off. I bake at 350 for an hour or a little more. I like to cook until it gets a little brown and crusty. My family loves this meatloaf and it's good the next day sliced on sandwiches too.

    I've never heard of adding oatmeal - I'm going to try that next time around.

    I try to use as little meat as possible so I like to add substitutes. Besides bread crumbs, I usually add a cup of mashed lentils.

    this is very interesting to me - i usually make a meatloaf about once a week - and dont really use a recipe - just this and that - but i always make mine with the "meatloaf mix" meat which is beef/pork/veal - i never thought anything about it since that is what my mother always used - then i mentioned something about it to a friend and she told me not to make that whenever she eats over since she doesent eat veal - anyway - here is basically what i do

    ground beef/pork/veal
    mustard
    ketchup
    worcheshire sauce (sp?)
    basil
    oregano
    salt/pepper
    garlic powder
    onion flakes
    1 egg
    parm cheese
    italian bread crumbs

    mix and shape into loaf
    mix more ketchup/mustard/worcheshire sauce (mostly ketchup) and spread on top of loaf and sprinkle with garlic powder

    bake one hour at 350

    Nanny's Meatloaf​

    Before the recipe, and by way of explanation-my grandfather had heart problems, so she didn't use egg.

    1 1/2 - 2 lbs ground beef
    1- 12 oz can of tomato juice or V-8(reserve about 1/4 of the can)
    Progresso Italian bread crumbs(enough to mix)
    onion salt to taste
    pepper to taste


    I use the same pan I cook in to mix above ingredients, when well mixed, form into a loaf, I turn and knead it a few times so there's no hole in the middle. I use a large frying pan with lid(12" chicken fryer) heat pan on med/high heat-on TOP of stove-and brown both sides. Once it is browned, I add 1 large sweet onion, cut in half, then sliced, around meatloaf. Take remaining tomato juice, and add enough water to make about 2 cups of liquid. Pour over and around meatloaf. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 1-1 1/2 hours-I usually turn once during the simmering time, so it doesn't get too brown on the first side. I serve with either egg noodles(the juice is wonderful on the meatloaf and the noodles) or mashed potatoes-this comes out very moist, and makes great sandwiches later. Enjoy.
