Old Fashioned Meatloaf

1 lb ground chuck


1 small onion, diced

1 egg

½ cup binder (dry oatmeal, wheaties, frosted flakes, corn flakes)

Salt to taste

Pepper to taste

¼ – ½ cup (depending on your tastes) Ketchup


Combine ingredient, except for ketchup in a large bowl.  My mom always mixed with her hands, so I do too!  Place the combined meat mixture into a loaf pan (I’m using muffin tins this time – something different.  I plan to freeze the remainder so that we have an easy meal in the future) or you can use any type of pan and form the meat mixture into a loaf.  Cover the top of the loaf with ketchup and place in an oven preheated to 350.  Bake for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.


We usually have mashed potatoes and cream style corn with this meal.

Ready for the oven
