Easy Meatloaf Recipe

Meatloaf is a quick and easy recipe / meal for me to make around here and the kids actually eat it. I usually serve it with Baked Potatoes and a Vegetable of some sorts. Brent is not the biggest fan of Meatloaf – no he is a pretty picky eater – but he will eat this. So here is the Recipe for The Greer’s Meatloaf.


Greer’s Meatloaf Recipe
Recipe type: Dinner
  • 1-2lbs of Ground Hamburger Meat (Or Turkey Meat If You Please)
  • ⅓ Cup of Ketchup
  • 3 tbsp of Sour Cream
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 to 1½ Cups of Ground Cornflakes
  • 3 tbsp of Tomato Paste
  • 1 tbsp of Lipton Onion Soup Mix
  1. Preheat Oven to 400 degrees. Mix Everything besides Cornflakes and Meat – stir up very well. Grind up the cornflakes and mix them into the meat. Add the mixture to the meat and put into a bread loaf pan and put into the oven. Sometimes I lightly grease the bread loaf pan but not often. Add salt and pepper and cook for about 45 mins to an hour. You can always check the meat to make sure it is no longer pink inside in the middle while cooking and it won’t dry out. I don’t add ketchup to the top of the mixture like most. Do. Serve and enjoy!

    My family’s Mexican Meat Loaf Recipe is this:
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    2 lbs. lean ground beef
    2 eggs lightly beaten
    1/2 cup of Salsa, we like mild salsa (I generally use Old El Paso or Pace’s brand)
    2 slices of soft bread torn up into very small pieces (I don’t use dry bread crumbs)
    Mix all ingredients together in large bowl until well blended.
    Shape the mixture into a loaf and place in a foil-lined baking pan.
    I don’t use a loaf pan because I want as much grease to come off and out of it as possible. There are loaf pans that have an insert pan with holes in the bottom, so that grease will drip through. Those would be good too, but I don’t have one, so I use my large rectangular pan I use when making a sheet cake.
    Bake in a 375 degree oven for 1 hour.
    Usually about 5 to 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time I either sprinkle on top grated cheddar cheese to melt, or I spread on
    1/4 cup of Ketsup that has 1/2 teaspoon of Chili powder mixed in it,
    then let it finish cooking. The cheddar cheese topping seems to be a bigger hit around here than the chili powdered ketsup.
    If I do use some turkey instead of hamburger, I will still use at least 1/2 hamburger to give it the flavor my family wants.

    • That sounds delicious. I am definitely going to have to try this out!!! Thank you for sharing!
