This is about as easy as meatloaf gets. Makes two meatloafs
3 lbs ground beef (I use 85% lean)
2 cups panko bread crumbs (Can substitute regular bread crumbs or oatmeal)
2 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce (Whatever brand and flavor you like best).
1 large chopped onion
1 package onion soup mix (I like Lipton, but use whatever brand you like)
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Ketchup to cover completely (I use Heinz, but again, use your favorite brand or even make your own)!
Preheat oven to 375
In a large bowl, thoroughly mix all ingredients together except ketchup. I use a strong wooden spoon, or even just go ahead and use your hands.
Divide in half and put half each in two bread pans.
Thickly top with ketchup. Top of meatloaf should be completely covered. I’ve never measured, I just squeeze it out.
Place on middle rack in oven, cook for 1 1/2 hours.
Insert baster at corner of bread-pan, remove excess grease.
Let cool for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
Makes 2 meatloafs. Can serve hot or cold.
Traditional: serve with mashed potatoes and gravy on the side.
My favorite: gravy on the mashies, more ketchup on the meatloaf.
Leftovers: There’s nothing like a meatloaf sandwich on your favorite bread, topped with mayonnaise.
