Grandma's Amazing Meatloaf Recipe: A Moist Ground Beef Recipe From Back in the Day by Donna John
Sometimes simple is better. Less is best. This easy meatloaf recipe like my grandma and mom used to make is the perfect example. This budget-friendly recipe has just a few simple ingredients. No expensive ingredients here.
The simple, old-fashioned meatloaf recipe is made with ground beef, eggs, breadcrumbs, onion, Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper. That's it. The ingredients are mixed together, formed into a meatloaf and baked in the oven for about 45 minutes or until cooked through.
If you like a sauce on top of your meatloaf, you could add ketchup, barbecue sauce or your favorite meatloaf topping right before the end of cooking time. Serve grandma's meatloaf with your favorite side dishes. Mashed potatoes and a vegetable were my grandma's top choices.
