    Now that the search function didn't help any, I ask this question.

    I need a meatloaf recipe. Im a meat and potatoes guy, and nothing pleases my stomach more than a ton of meatloaf and mashed potatoes with butter, and a side of corn.

    Any care to share? or point me in a specific direction?

    The last two times I made meatloaf I did it this way and it was fantastic!
    I invented it...
    Crazy, but it works!

    A coupla pounds of ground Chuck...
    A 1/2 - 3/4 can of Spam cut into 1/2" cubes...
    2 large onions diced, sauteed golden...
    10 or so pitted prunes cut into quarters...
    Envelope of Onion Soup Mix...
    Some Monterrey Jack, Mozzarella, or Fresh Mozzarella cubed...
    1/4 cup of Worcestershire...
    Salt, pepper, garlic powder...

    Top with Ketchup and bake for an hour at 350...

    The prunes give some bites a sweet creaminess...

    This is kind of artisinal "boutique Loafage"...

    Family sized meatloaf:

    3-4lbs ground beef.
    1/3-1/2 cup of ketchup,
    Fresh finely chopped garlic--amount to taste
    1 medium sized onion, chopped
    1/3 cup grated parmesan chese
    2 envelopes of your favorite beefy dry soup mix.
    3 eggs
    6 slices of white bread, cubed.
    1-2tbs worchestershire

    Mix all of the above in a bowl. Mix with your hands until everything is well combined. Shape into a loaf (personally, I go for a long wide loaf about 1 1/2" thick.) Mix 2tbs brown sugar, 1/3cup additional ketchup, and 1tbs additional worchestershire in another bowl, and top loaf with mixture. Make sure everything is nice and covered.

    Put in 350* oven and bake, periodically draining off the fat, for about an hour and a half.

    Serve with mashed potatoes, gravy, veggie of choice.

    No gravy recipe, unfortunately. I've always found the "pan drippings" from meatloaf to be WAY too greasy.

    I would almost always prefer to have meatloaf over a steak.

    I enjoy a good Santa Maria tri-tip, GOOD rare prime rib, or a Filet Mignon from time to time... pork now and again, but usually I'll prefer some great meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy.

    2 Lbs. 80% ground beef (lil more fatty but makes more taste and juicier)

    1 Lbs. ground sweet sausage/pork
    1 large white or vadallia onion chopped coarsley
    1 bunch italian flat parsley chopped
    6 laerge stalks celery chopped coarsley
    3 cloves garlic chopped
    1/2 loaf of stale day old bread. italian baggette or italian crusty style bread preferred but most any good bread would do. cut bread into cubes or small pieces and wetten them with milk slightly for moisture.

    1/2 cup ketchup
    tablespoon dry mustard
    salt and pepper to taste
    4 x-large eggs slightly beaten.
    optional: 1 large red bell pepper chopped

    ***mix all ingredients lightly just till ingredients come together and mixed through, in bowl ....but dont over mix for makes for tougher more dense-like meatloaf.
    Form into a large loaf pan or baking pan that has been sprayed with pam thoroughly.
    Bake at 375 degrees for 75 to 90 minutes depending on your oven.
    Let stand counter for 15 minutes to half hour before serving.
    Goes great with scalloped potatoes casserole or creamy garlic mashed potatoes.

    enjoy....;f ;f ;f ;f ;f ;f

    1 egg, beaten 1 can cheddar cheese soup

    1/2 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper

    Combine egg, 1/3 Cup soup, crumbs, onion, salt and pepper. Add beef and mix well. Shape into loaf. Bake in baking pan at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Mix catsup with the remaining soup and spread on top of meat loaf for the final 20 minutes of baking time.
