Granny’s Old Fashioned Meatloaf

Meatloaf. That word just conjures up images of comfort and times spent around grandma’s table for Sunday dinner. However, meatloaf isn’t particularly healthy and so a lot of people have put it aside for other kinds of food. And I’m going to admit right now that this recipe isn’t all that healthy although I have taken steps to make it more healthy than it might otherwise be. This is a variation of a recipe that is nearly 200 years old but it’s been given a modern update that has taken it from it’s roots in the Pennsylvania heartland. You will need the following ingredients:

Meatloaf

Two pounds of ground beef

One pound of ground pork

Four large eggs, beaten

3/4 cup panko bread crumbs

1 package beefy onion soup mix

1 package McCormick’s bourbon brown sugar marinade mix

Sauce

One small onion diced fine

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 can of Campbell’s Healthy Request tomato soup, undiluted

1/4 cup cold water

1 tablespoon Worchestershire sauce

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Heat the oil and saute the onion until it is brown and translucent. Add the water, soup, and Worchestershire sauce to the pan and bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer for ten minute. In a large bowl add the meatloaf ingredients and mix them together well. In a large baking pan or several small loaf pans shape the meat mixture into a loaf and top it with the sauce mixture. Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes and serve. This goes great with nearly anything from rice and gravy to macaroni and cheese.
