Vivian’s Onion Meatloaf Recipe

Vivian's Onion Meatloaf by Dish Ditty

Meatloaf is an American standard, and I think everyone has their own version. In my family alone, we probably have 5 different ways that we make meatloaf. I think my recipe is the best.


Main Dishes: Beef

Ingredients
Directions
Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2

Combine ground beef, onion, bread crumbs, egg, milk, salt, pepper and paprika. I usually just mush it together with my hands making sure the spices are evenly distributed.

Step 3

Spray casserole dish with Pam cooking spray.

Step 4

Form the meat into a loaf as shown in this picture. This is a very saucy meatloaf and there needs to be room for the sauce, so don't use a loaf pan otherwise you won't have much sauce.

Step 5

Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.

Step 6

While the meatloaf is cooking, in a medium bowl, combine the hot water and beef bouillon base to dissolve.

Step 7

Add the tomato soup and mix well.

Step 8

When the meatloaf is done cooking the first 45 minutes of baking, remove from oven and pour sauce over the meat and return to oven. Bake an additional 45 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.

Step 9

Remove from oven. Look how yummy!

Step 10

Separate the meat loaf from the sauce. Slice and serve, using the sauce to pour over the meat and mashed potatoes.


I can’t take 100% credit for this meatloaf. I just followed what I think my mom used to do. I adjusted it a little by adding the beef base to the sauce (really kicks it up). But again we had a complete mix of what each of us kids thought the recipe was. I had three different recipes that my siblings had ‘written down’ from mom, none of which is the recipe I use regularly. Here’s a quick glimpse at one of my mom’s written recipes for meatloaf:

So, again I give you multiple versions in one post. The first recipe is my version which is tested and pictured. The others are different versions coming from my dad and siblings.

So, take your pick of recipes. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of these recipes. Enjoy!
