Meatloaf Recipe

This easy meatloaf is very flavorful thanks to the homemade onion soup mix!  The pan drippings also make a divine gravy…you’ll never use ketchup again!


2 pounds ground beef
1 recipe onion soup mix (or 1 envelope)
¾ cup bread crumbs
2 eggs
¾ cup water
¼ cup flour
½ teaspoon browning sauce (such as Kitchen Bouquet)


1.  Heat oven to 350°.  Combine all ingredients except the flour and browning sauce in a large bowl.  Place in a loaf pan.  Bake uncovered for 1 hour or until done.  Let stand 10 minutes.

2.  Remove loaf from pan, cover to keep warm.  Strain the pan juices into a 2-cup glass measuring cup.  Spoon off fat, reserving 3 tablespoons.  Add water, if necessary to make 2 cups of pan juices. 

3. Pour pan drippings and juices into a sauce pan.  Whisk or stir in ¼ cup of flour until smooth.  Bring to a boil.  Cook and stir for 1 minute.  Remove from heat; add browning liquid.

Serve with mashed potatoes, if desired.
