Our Family's Meatloaf

Our family's meatloaf recipe was just something we have been doing forever.  I am sure that it is similar to a recipe somewhere, but it was written down in Pam's recipe book probably for as long as we have been married.  This is a good staple for the family.  We will often make two loafs, one to eat and one to freeze.


Ingredients (adjust according to the amount of ground beef):
1 lbs Ground beef (we almost always use Ground Sirloin - works well with that)
1 Egg (add another egg is you end up with around 1.5 lbs of ground beef)
1 cup Bread crumbs
3/4 cup Ketchup (adjust to taste)
1/2 cup Water, warm
1 package Onion soup mix (Lipton or others...any variety)
1 tbsp Dried minced onion (if desired)

1. Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl (do not try to mix in the loaf will not me on this one).
3. Bake for around one hour. Check the loaf before serving. If you end up with more beef, let it go an extra 10 minutes.

Enjoy with potatoes and a green vegetable.  Or great on a sandwich.
