  • yes. i dont use ketchup, but i know people who do.

    here i the recipe i use:
    1 can of condensed tomato soup
    2lbs. ground beef
    1 pouch of dry onion soup mix (this is where you could use whatever spices you want)
    1/2 cup of bread crumbs (you can use crushed up stuffing or i bet you could toast some bread and crush that too)
    1 egg, beaten

    you mix it all together shape it and then bake it at 350 for 1 hour and 15 minutes. I love it. and so does my family. Although I add a garlic powder to mine. It really helps.

  • Add a little milk in place of the eggs. You do need a binder, and while I always use eggs, they aren't totally necessary.

  • Yes, the eggs help hold it together.
    I also like to use bread crumbs, cracker crumbs, or dry stuffing mix, but I don't think it's a big deal if you don''s just filler.

  • In place of eggs, you can use ground flax seeds mixed with water, tofu, bananas, and even yogurt.

  • Yes. But it might be a little plain. Here is a meatloaf recipie I found. I've never actually used it, but it looks good and I'm trying it something this week for dinner!

  • Directions In a small bowl, combine the bay leaves, salt, cayenne pepper, ground black pepper, ground white pepper, cumin, and nutmeg; set aside. Melt the butter or margarine in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, green onions, garlic, hot pepper sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and reserved seasoning mix. Saute until mixture starts sticking to the bottom of the pan, about 6 minutes. Stir in the milk and ketchup; continue cooking for 2 more minutes, stirring occasionally.
    Remove vegetable mixture from heat, and allow to cool to room temperature. Place the beef and sausage in an ungreased 9x13 inch baking dish. Add the eggs, the vegetable mixture, and the bread crumbs. Remove the bay leaves. Mix well by hand, and form into a loaf about 1 1/2 inches high. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 minutes. Then raise heat to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and bake for another 35 minutes. Let stan

  • You can make meatloaf with pretty much anything - all you need is some kind of ground meat, some kind of starchy filler (crackers, breadcrumbs, crushed cereal, rice), and some kind of liquid to bind it.

  • You can also use Applesauce. ;)

  • yes you can.

    my meat loaf.

    ground beef
    worstershire sauce
    garlic salt/ pepper

    If you have the oatmeal you can nix the eggs, because it can be used as a binder instead of the eggs. This goes for bread crumbs as well.
