Hi choco...
here's one I made up since I didn't like my dads...I don't measure anything ..I just eyeball to what I think is a good amount...

Hamburger meat 1 or 2 eggs
seasoning salt pepper
garlic salt Worcestershire Sauce
Instant potatos Colby and Monterey Jack Cheese
tabacso sauce

Put the Hamburger in a bowl add seasoning salt, garlic salt, pepper, tabasco sauce, eggs. Then add instant potatos and worcestershire to make the desired consitency. I put have down in pan then add some cheese on top...then put the other half of meat on top of cheese.
Bake at 350* until it looks done about 35 minutes to an hour...

How much hamburger I use is what determines how much of the other ingredients I use is....

Hope you like it if you try it...let me know....

Hi ChocOsweet,

No, you do not need a loaf pan.

My mom's meat loaf was the best I have ever had. Whenever I make it everyone raves about it. I don't really measure either.

1 1/2 to 2 pounds ground beef (ground buffalo is wonderful for this--I call it "Buffaloaf"!)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 egg
approx. 1/4 cup canned evaporated milk
a couple good-sized handfuls of uncooked oatmeal
salt and pepper to taste (I omit the salt, actually)

Mix all ingredients well (You're going to have to get your hands messy to do this right!). Form into a loaf. Bake at 350 degrees about an hour. You can play with it and add things for variety, such as cheese in the middle, or mushrooms. My mom put a big dill pickle in the middle once!

If you have any leftovers, this makes great meatloaf sandwiches. I like it best cold, with Miracle Whip, ketchup, and dill pickle slices. Yum!

:) Barbara

Christy that sounds GREAT!!!!!!! :) I like the spice ya put in there and the instant potato mix sounds like a good idea. I usually cook mine like Barbara, but without the oatmeal. I usually put in romano cheese and lots of cracked pepper. I wonder how it would taste with the oatmeal.

I was thinking of trying the oatmeal..I hear of more people who are doing that...Do you mix the romano cheese all through it or just put it in the middle. I am very picky so to eat a lot of items i had to come up with my own versions...

I mix it through out the meatloaf. I will use other hard cheeses too. Parmesan and the like.

The oatmeal helps bind it together, like bread crumbs (which a lot of people use), but it makes it firmer than bread crumbs, in my opinion.

I never use oatmeal in mine, but eggs to bind it.

2 pounds ground beef (85% lean)
2 eggs
1 cup plain bread crumbs
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
salt & pepper
2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
1/2 C chopped onion
1/2 C chopped bell pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until they're well combined. Form a loaf and place on a greased baking shallow baking pan, or in a greased loaf pan. I usually line the bottom of my loaf pan with parchment paper so nothing will stick at the bottom. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until meat is cooked through.

I know I have posted this somewhere here before - but my son decided for awhile that he didn't like meatloaf - BUT he liked meatballs.....so I just used the recipe for meatballs on the can of Progresso or the one on another bread crumb box and I just make a meatloaf out of it - it's pretty good!!!!
