My husband makes the best meatloaf out of a recipe handed down from his ex-girlfriend’s mother. It isn’t written down, he does it from memory each time he makes it. Meatloaf is his thing, the way devilled eggs or pulled pork is mine.
I don’t want to take it away from him, but I also don’t want to end up on meatloaf duty once I know the secret recipe. So, I struggled. Then I broke down, how could I keep this amazing meatloaf from the world?
After much drama, here it is. Before you make it though, be sure to check out this Kids in the Hall skit about a meatloaf that has fallen from grace.
The Best Meatloaf Ever (via Rilla Rutherford)
1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
1 can mushroom soup
1 large onion chopped fine
1 cup bread crumbs
a few shakes of Worcestershire
- Mix everything together and shape into a loaf. This makes a fairly large meatloaf, enough for a family of 4 with leftovers for meatloaf sandwiches the next day.
- Put in oven at 350 for 2 hours.
- After 1st hour, brush with some ketchup mixed with a little soy sauce.
