Some friends and I were talking about meatloaf and how gross most of them are. I was able to say that I love my meatloaf! Again, this recipe comes from my mother and I have no idea where it came from to give proper credit.
1 1/2 pounds ground beef or turkey
1 1/4 cups dry bread crumbs (seasoned if desired)
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 can condensed tomato soup
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 tsps chopped parsley (you can use dehydrated equivelants of the last two ingredients)
1/2 tsp salt
dash of pepper
BBQ sauce (optional)
Combine all ingredients, mix lightly. Shape into loaf in 12" x 17" baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Pour BBQ sauce over top of loaf. Bake for 30 minutes longer.
I have to admit, my siblings and I were weird when we were younger. We didn't like BBQ sauce. Mom put ketchup on our part.
So, in closing, give meatloaf a chance. You will love this one! Let me know what you think!
