As a child, I did NOT like meatloaf. In fact, it was my least favorite thing to eat next to stuffed bell peppers (yuck!!). It wasn’t until just a year or so ago I would even LOOK at meatloaf. Then one day while shopping for groceries in the seasoning aisle, I ran across a meatloaf seasoning mix by McCormick and thought I would give it a try (knowing there would be no bell peppers in it since I would be the one making it : ) It is about the easiest meal I make and Keith and I love it. Most of the time I half the recipe so we won’t have a lot of leftovers and other times I’ll make it so Keith will have plenty of leftovers for meatloaf sandwiches (which he loves!). So here is the easiest recipe there is for a very delicious batch of meatloaf!
Easy (I mean EASY) Meatloaf
Recipe courtesy: McCormick.com
Printable Version: Easy (I mean easy!) Meatloaf
- 1 pkg. McCormick Meat Loaf Seasoning Mix
- 2 lbs ground beef or ground turkey
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs (I use Saltine crackers)
- Ketchup or tomato sauce for topping
Mix seasoning mix, ground beef or turkey, eggs, milk and bread/cracker crumbs in a large bowl.
Shape into a loaf. Place loaf in a shallow baking pan or 9X5 loaf pan (I line mine with foil for easy clean up)
Top with ketchup or tomato sauce.
Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 1 hour or until cooked through.
**A lot of times when I half the recipe I will still put the whole packet of seasoning in the meat. It really gives the meatloaf a great flavor. And of course, you can always put those nasty veggies like bell peppers or onions in yours : )
