Doing a couple of meat loaves today. Here is the recipe I used, (it is not my own - someone posted it here) Easy Meat Loaf Recipe â€¢2 lbs. ground beef â€¢1 small onion finely chopped â€¢1/2 green pepper finely chopped â€¢2 cloves garlic minced (optional) â€¢1 C. fresh bread crumbs or saltine cracker crumbs â€¢2 eggs lightly beaten â€¢3/4 C. ketchup â€¢1/4 C. milk Mix all ingredients in a bowl. blend the mixture about 4-5 minutes and then form onto a flat cookie sheet. You can finish the top with ketchup if you like about 30 minutes before the meatloaf is finished smoking.
