Italian-style seasonings and dry onion soup mix are used in this meatloaf rendition. The loaf is basted with ketchup before baking.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1/2 packet dry onion soup mix
- 3 slices leftover bread (heels are great), torn into bite-size pieces
- 1 teaspoon Italian-style seasoning
- 1 tablespoon water
- water as needed
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
In a large bowl, combine the beef, ketchup, soup mix, bread, Italian-style seasoning and water. Mix well. Shape into a loaf and place into a 9 inch pie pan OR a 9x13 inch baking dish. Baste the top of the meatloaf with ketchup.
Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for one hour, or until the edges are just crispy and the top has a crust.
Cool for 15 to 20 minutes before cutting.
