Grandma's Prize-Winning Meatloaf Recipe: This Meatloaf Recipe Has Braggin' Rights by Donna John
Prize winning. That's what my grandma wrote on her recipe card for this old-fashioned meatloaf recipe. What prize I'm not sure, but if my grandma said so, it must be true (the woman could cook!). This moist meatloaf was a staple at her house and much loved by the whole family.
The easy meatloaf recipe has simple ingredients: tomato juice, oatmeal, an egg, chopped onion, ground beef, salt and black pepper. The ingredients are combined, put into a loaf pan and baked for about one hour or until cooked through. Be sure to let the meatloaf sit for about five minutes before slicing.

- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Here's how to make it:
