If you are looking for a simple Meatloaf Recipe, here is one that I made this past week. It was a hit with my family (including my son), and I hardly had any leftovers. It serves around 4-6.
All you need to create the Cream of Mushroom Meatloaf Recipe is:
1 pound of Lean Ground Beef*
1/2 Cup of Plain Breadcrumbs
1 Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
* FYI if it is a little over a pound of meat that is fine, however I would not go less than a pound. I have used both Lean and Ground Round for this recipe, and after some reader input it looks like a leaner ground beef with less fat works better versus a 80/20 ground beef.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the egg, breadcrumbs, ground beef, and half a can of Cream of Mushroom Soup. I first used a spoon, and then I put my fingers in to make sure it was mixed up really well. I then formed this into a loaf and placed it into my loaf pan.
I poured the other half of the Cream of Mushroom Soup on top of this and smoothed it out over the top. I cooked this in the oven for 1 hour. (You may need to cook it for as long as 1 hour and15 minutes.) As always, follow the USDA Guidelines for Cooked Meat.
It was easy to prepare and I paired this with Parmesan Broccoli and White Rice. It was yummy!
