Aunt Peggy’s Perfect Recipe

First things first, let me introduce you to Aunt Peggy’s famous meatloaf recipe. This is the one that captures everyone’s heart and taste buds. And guess what? It’s super easy to make!

Now, you might be wondering why I’m putting bread down in the pan. Well, it’s a little secret trick that Aunt Peggy taught me. By lining the pan with bread, it soaks up any excess fat from the ground beef. Trust me, this makes a huge difference in the final result.

The Ingredients That Make It Irresistible

To make this meatloaf truly special, we’re going to add a few unexpected ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1/2 cup of instant oatmeal (the quick-cooking kind)
  • Chopped onion and bell pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 8 ounces of diced tomatoes (or tomato sauce)
  • Bread slices to line the pan

The Secret Ingredient: Onion Soup Mix

Now, here’s where the magic happens – the onion soup mix. Simply mix it in with all the other ingredients, using your hands to make sure everything is well combined. The soup mix adds incredible flavor and enhances the overall taste of the meatloaf.

The Perfect Topping

Who doesn’t love a deliciously caramelized topping on their meatloaf? I know I do! For the perfect finishing touch, mix together 1/2 cup of ketchup, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, and a tablespoon of mustard. This sweet and tangy topping will take your meatloaf to the next level.

Bake and Enjoy

Once you’ve mixed everything together, mold the meatloaf on top of the bread-lined pan. Smooth it out and make sure it’s tightly packed. Then, pour the topping over the meatloaf, spreading it evenly using your fingers. Pop it in the oven at 350 degrees for one hour, and get ready for your kitchen to be filled with mouthwatering aromas.

Your Meatloaf, Your Way
