Little Mama's Short-Cut Meatloaf

This is my super simple short-cut meatloaf.  I always prefer to make as much of my food from scratch as possible, but I also know that I do not always have time to do that.  Some nights, I need easy recipes that I can pull together to avoid eating out.  So, here is the meatloaf that I can actually get my picky eater to eat!

Gather Your Ingredients:

  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1 cup of your favorite instant stuffing mix (I like Stove-Top Cornbread)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 T milk
  • 2 T ketchup

Make It:

  1. Mix all ingredients thoroughly, I like to use the "stir" speed on my stand mixer.
  2. Form into a loaf in a baking dish.  I use my glass Pyrex dish.
  3. Bake at 375 for approximately 40 minutes.  Because ovens vary, check your meatloaf prior to the 40 minute mark (maybe around 30) to make sure it doesn't over cook.  If it gets overdone ... it will be dry!
**Notes:  This recipe easily feeds my family of 4 (2 adults and 2 young girls).  You can very easily double the recipe, but you will likely need to bake it longer.  In this case, you may consider lowering the temperature depending on how your oven bakes.  Personally, I try to make my meatloafs a little less thick so that I do not end up with a raw center and a dark outside. **  Also, try sauteing some veggies to throw into the mix if you have time!  Try onions and bell peppers.**
