Recipe of the Month: Meatloaf

Acts 16:28-34:  But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.  Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.  And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.

And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.  And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.

Ah, meatloaf!  What can you say about meatloaf?  My youngest son, whom is 7, says, “It is very good!”  Here is my version of a classic.


2 pounds ground chuck

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups bread crumbs or instant oats

3/4 cup ketchup

1/2 cup milk

1 package onion soup mix

4 slices uncooked bacon


1/2 cup ketchup

6 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Layer bacon in the bottom of a 2.5 quart or 3 quart baking dish.

Like this!

In a large bowl mix, or in other terms, squish together ground chuck, eggs, bread crumbs (or oats), ketchup, milk and onion soup mix.

Once you get it all squished together, place on top of bacon in baking dish

I use my Deep Covered Baker from The Pampered Chef.

Spread evenly over top of bacon.

Cover and bake for about an 1 hour.

Remove from oven and try to drain off most of the grease.  Be very careful, meatloaf my shift in the pan and cause grease to splatter.

Mix up your sauce to over the top of your meatloaf.

Just put all your ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk it together

Pour evenly over your meatloaf and return to the oven, uncovered.  Bake for about 30 more minutes.

Do Not Over Bake.  If it looks like its starting to burn remove it from the oven.

And here it is …. the finished product!

Make this meatloaf for supper tonight and then wait for the compliments.  And tell’em it’s just something you threw together!!
