Sunday my husband decided at 3:30pm to tell me, “Hey, I’m gonna invite everyone over for dinner.” Panic!! That means I have 2 hours to clean my house and get something made, and not to mention that I hadn’t been to the grocery store in about a week. So, my cupboards were pretty bare. In this situation, this is one of my go to recipes, or in other words, when I have no time to plan out my meal. I’ve made a couple meat loafs from scratch, but I seem to always come back to this seasoning mix. It’s easy, it incorporates ingredients that you will almost always have, and it’s really good! One thing that I do just a little bit differently then the recipe is I put about 1/4 cup of ketchup in the meatloaf itself, and I don’t scrip on the ketchup I put on top. Basically, I put as much as I possibly can put on top without it dripping down the sides. This just helps give the inside that little extra moisture, because I feel like meatloaf can easily be too dry, and the ketchup on top bakes to become a little sweet and is so yummy with the beef and seasoning. It’s just perfect. The best meatloaf recipe I have ever had.
