Meatloaf is one of my husbands favorite meals. Me on the other hand, not so much. I am not a big lover of ground beef unless it is rare or smothered in sauce and pasta. When I take my clients out to eat I like to make dinner for my husband before I leave. I make the meatloaf in the morning, cover it and let it sit in the refrigerator letting all those flavors meld into the ground beef. Then all my husband has to do is pop it into the oven. I adapted the Lipton Onion Soup Meatloaf recipe to our liking so my version of their recipe is what I will post. It is not that different than the Lipton recipe. The Lipton recipe makes two loaves and my recipe makes one loaf. If you wish to have the Lipton recipe just go to their website. This only takes about five minutes to prepare this meatloaf. Not only is it quick, but easy and delicious too.
Six ingredients for a delicious meatloaf.
Place ground beef in a large bowl.
Stir in Lipton Onion Soup Mix.
Stir in the bread crumbs
In a small bowl, using a fork, whisk water, egg and ketchup together.
Pour liquid into ground beef mixture. Stir just until completely combined.
Pour the mixture into a meatloaf pan (I use a bread pan).
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate if you aren’t going to cook it right away. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 55 minutes.
