•2 pounds ground beef
•5 slices of bread torn into small pieces
•1 envelope onion soup mix
•3/4 cup of water or milk
•1/3 cup of ketchup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Thoroughly combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Shape into a large loaf pan or 2 medium size loaf pans.
Bake uncovered approximately 1 hour or until done.
I take the meat loaf out of the oven after about 45 minutes to remove any excess grease. Then I swirl ketchup on top and put back in the oven until browned and done.
