Remember Meatloaf?

Do you?
Do you remember meatloaf?
What the heck happened to meatloaf, anyway?
I would wager a bet that there is even a population of our younger generation who has no idea what meatloaf even is.
I plan to change that today.

Growing up, my mom made the best meatloaf.
When my friends would hear “meatloaf” for dinner, they would make groaning noises.
“Meatloaf? Icccck. No thanks, I will stay home and eat Lucky Charms for dinner.”
That is until they had my mom’s meatloaf.
It was a definite game changer when it pertained to meat in a loaf form.

 

Mom's Meatloaf

1 pound of ground beef

2 eggs

1/2 C. breadcrumbs

1 onion, chopped

1 tsp. garlic powder

Preheat your oven to 350.
Mix all of the above together with your hands.
Form into a loaf pan.
If you don’t have a loaf pan, you can use a casserole but just form the meat into a loaf.
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

That is it!
It will make you miss your childhood.
But not your annoying neighbor.
Remember the one?
Who always teased you on the bus?
Yes, that one.

I love to write about my family, John Hughes, tacos and Bruce Hornsby. Not necessarily in that order.

    We have "monthly meatloaf" at my parents ' house every month. My kids definitely know what meatloaf is. Yay for meatloaf!

    You are so funny.

    Now, I say that every single time I come here, don’t I? I must sound like a broken record. Wait–remember broken records?? According to my kids, a great deal of what comes out of my mouth is an anachronism.

    Anyway, my mom was not a meatloaf master like yours. Thank you for sharing your goodness. Now I’m wishing for cooler weather so that I’d actually feel like turning on the oven!

    Thanks so much for joining the Grace at Home party. I’m featuring you this week!
