This is the meatloaf we grew up on as kids. I love this recipe, it's easy and delicious. It also makes great sandwiches for the next day.
1 lb of ground beef
1 package of onion soup mix
1/2 cup bread crumbs
3/4 cup ketchup
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix ground beef, onion soup mix, egg, bread crumbs and 1/2 cup ketchup together until combined (do not over mix). Form into a loaf and put into a ungreased loaf pan. Spread remaining 1/4 cup of ketchup on top of meatloaf(optional). Bake for 45 min - 1 hr. Let stand for 15 minutes before slicing.
