    Sunday Meat Loaf

Sunday Meat Loaf Recipe

  • 10 Servings
  • Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1-1/2 hours


  • 1 cup stewed tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1 celery rib, diced
  • 2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 2-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • Ketchup


  • In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into a loaf in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Drizzle with ketchup. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1-1/2 hours or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160°. Using two large spatulas, carefully transfer meat loaf to a serving platter. Yield: 10 servings. 

    If you open up a whole package of bacon but don't use it all at once, freeze strips in a single layer on a baking sheet. When frozen, transfer to a large resealable plastic bag. Remove and thaw strips as needed.

My 12 year old DD brought this recipe home from school. It is real easy and very tasty.  Brown 1/2 pound of hamburger. Add 1 can of diced tomatoes and a can of corn. Add one package of taco seasoning. Simmer for about 10 minutes than serve and top with cheese.

If only my mother would have known :O) Yummy meatloaf

If only my mother would have known when I was younger how great Ragu was for me :O).  I was a difficult child who didn't eat to many veggies.  But I LOVED Ragu and still do.  I have found ways over the years to include the wonderful taste of Ragu into my dishes. This is my fast easy meatloaf made with Ragu you will never make it another way again I promise :O)




1 pound ground meat(you can use whatever meat you like)

1 cup breadcrumbs(may need more or less it varies :O))

3/4 cup Ragu pasta sauce(not just for pasta anymore)

1 egg

1 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder or salt

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning



Mix all ingredients together and form into loaf. Place in pan uncovered. Place in over on 300 for about an hour. Different meats take more or less time.  You will get a great crust on the outside when it is done :O)


****Also make GREAT meatballs for spaghetti****

  • My mom's recipe for meatloaf, we do it up in patties instead of a loaf, cooks faster, doesn't heat the entire house up AND everyone gets the yummy crunchy end parts!

    1 lb hamburger

    1 egg

    1 pkg saltine crackers, smooshed up

    splash of milk about 1/8 to 1/4 cup, just to have the meat moist

    If baking, but it in dish 350 degrees for about half hour -45 min ; If you wanna try the patties, do it up just like you would hamburger patties!! YUMO!
