I was not a fan of meatloaf until I tasted this recipe. My sister brought it to us on our first day home from the hospital with our daughter. It was right in the middle of one of the hottest summers ever and our swamp cooler had broken while we were in the hospital. All of us were hot, hungry, overwhelmed and in tears. This was the best dinner we could have ever had. It was also so nice that she helped with the baby while we took a minute to get back on our feet. This recipe has also become my go-to recipe when I'm out of meal ideas.
3/4 c. milk
1/2 c. dry bread crumbs, plain or italian style
1/4 c. finely chopped onion or about 1 Tbsp. dehydrated onion
2 Tbsp. snipped fresh parsley or about 1 tsp. dried parsley
1 tsp. salt
1 lb. ground beef, uncooked
ground pepper to taste
1 tsp. worcestershire sauce (or more to taste)
Mix all ingredients together and pour in a standard 8x4x2 bread pan. You could also mince some vegis and throw in there too. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour 15 minutes.
