It's Just Meatloaf

There is absolutely nothing special about this... it's just meatloaf; however every time I make it my husband will say "What smells so good?", and then him and my son gobble it up. To me there's no sense trying to make meatloaf into something it's not, you can't really make it look pretty, or add extra stuff into it to make it fancy... so here is my very basic recipe.

Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 1 Hour | Serves: 6

1 pound ground beef
1 egg
10 vegetable thin crackers, crushed (or soda crackers)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons mustard

- Combine first 5 ingredients in bowl, form into loaf, and place in baking dish.
- Mix together the remaining ingredients, then pour over meatloaf.
- Bake 375° for 1 hour.


  1. Dad’s Meatloaf recipe
    About 5 pounds of Hamburger
    Four Eggs
    Real garlic wedge’s about put as taste about 4 of wedges cut into small pieces
    About a half of Onion if you use a small onion cut into small pieces
    About one and half tablespoon of Season all
    Put about three tablespoon of Wuerze sauce
    Put about one cup of Ketchup depends on how dry the meat is make sure it just moist enough.
    About a half teaspoon of Salt and Pepper
    Put About between 30 to 40 Crackers it depend how moist the meat is make sure that you crush them into small pieces
    Then mix the ingredients all together, after you done so put the meatloaf in a pan. Make sure that you foil to keep it away from sticking to the pan.
    Preheat the oven 340 Fahrenheit, after the oven has reached the correct temperature. Bake the meatloaf until all most done, then add ketchup on top .Put it back into the oven and finish baking it until done.
