Meatloaf "to Die For" -- Cooking 101 - Fast, Foolproof...
Here is an unusual meatloaf recipe that’s tried and true and will keep them coming back for more!
This recipe is so simple that even the most cooking-challenged person in the world can make it. It is so good that the most experienced cook will want to serve it over and over again.
There are about as many ways of making a meatloaf as there are cooks, so what makes this one so uniquely special that I would publish it? It’s all in the ingredients of course. And, easy part? No messy crackers crumbs, no chopping onions, and no ketchup to mess with…unless you’re a die-hard and insist on ketchup as a topping.
I have had this recipe for years, and it is the only one I use. I’ll bet you’ll love too! Here it goes:
2 lbs lean ground beef
1 reg. size pkg. Lipton's Onion Soup
1 small can evaporated milk
1 heaping cup of grated cheese
1 small can chopped mushrooms...drained
Preheat oven to 350
Place all ingredients in large bowl and mix well with gloved hands. Place mixture into chosen baking dish, loaf pan, or muffin tin.
Place meatloaf into the 350 degree oven and set timer for one hour.
Check the middle with a fork to see if it is done enough for you. If using a loaf pan, you may need to cook it longer.
1 Be sure to keep some of the juices from the meat in tack so your meatloaf will not dry out. You might even add a bit of red wine to the existing juices should it appear dry.
2) For hygiene purposes, be considerate and cautious and wear plastic gloves when preparing any meatloaf recipe.
Thanks for the recipe....I am gonna give it a try!
Margaret, Feta cheese would certainly be an interesting twist. Why not try it and give us all a report? It might be awesome!
Do you think you could use Feta as the cheese?
I love it. I have found me a new recipe. I love meatloaf, and have been trying for years to make the perfect meatloaf, to no avail. Even my picky sister loved it. And no one even noticed that there was cheese it. I ended up using a cup of whole milk because I didn't have any evaporated milk, but it still turned out great. Eventually, I'll add bell peppers and onions, but for right now, I'll keep it as it is.
Yes, cooking meatloaf in a muffin tin will cut your cooking time. Plan for 20-25 minutes if using muffin tins. Normal baking dish cooking time for this meatloaf will be about about 1 hr. and 15 minutes. Of course this depends on how well done you like it and your particular oven. I would check the muffin tins at 20 min and go from there!
Are the temp and cook time the same for the tins? by the way great idea for good portions thanks, maybe my diet will work this year; )
