This meatloaf recipe is one of my own recipes that I have been using for 30 years. I have tweaked it here and there. I have learned of the substitutions that I can use if I am out of something. For example, if I am out of bread crumbs, I substitute with oatmeal, saltines or club crackers. If I’m low on ketchup, I add tomato sauce instead. That’s one of the reasons I have always used this recipe. It’s easy. Click here if you would like the printable PDF.

How to make meatloaf

I make this recipe on a Sunday or Monday so there will be leftovers for the next day’s dinner. If you follow my blog, then you know I am all about the leftovers. My roast beef recipe and vegetables is one of my favorite meals where there are always leftovers. If I make the meatloaf and roast beef recipes back to back, then I only have to cook three meals through the week. This helps me so much through the busy work/school week. What are some of your favorite meals that you make through the week? Click here if you would like the printable PDF.
