Mexican Meatloaf Recipe
1-1/2 lbs. ground round (or ground beef)
1 med. onion diced
3/4 c. breadcrumbs
1 tsp. granulated garlic
2 tsp. Lawry's Seasoned Salt
2 eggs slightly beaten
1-8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 can Rotel "Extra Hot" diced tomatoes
Mix all ingredients except for 1/2 of the tomato sauce and form into
a loaf pan. Top with the remaining tomato sauce. Bake at 350 for 45
minutes or until done. I also use 1 small drained can of mushrooms in
the loaf because my husband likes them in about everything but they
are not necessary. As soon as I remove the loaf from the oven, I
drain off any excess grease from the loaf pan to keep it from
reabsorbing into the loaf.

My Favorite Meatloaf
The Pioneer Woman
- 1 cup Whole Milk
- 6 slices White Bread
- 2 pounds Ground Beef
- 1 cup (heaping) Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
- 1/4 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
- 3/4 teaspoons Salt
- Freshly Ground Black Pepper
- 1/3 cup Minced Flat-leaf Parsley
- 4 whole Eggs Beaten
- 10 slices Thin/regular Bacon
- 1-1/2 cup Ketchup
- 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Dry Mustard
- Tabasco To Taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour milk over the bread slices. Allow it to soak in for several minutes.
Place the ground beef, milk-soaked bread, Parmesan, seasoned salt, salt, black pepper, and parsley in a large mixing bowl. Pour in beaten eggs.
With clean hands, mix the ingredients until well combined. Form the mixture into a loaf shape on a broiler pan, which will allow the fat to drain. (Line the bottom of the pan with foil to avoid a big mess!)
Lay bacon slices over the top, tucking them underneath the meatloaf.
Make the sauce: add ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, and hot sauce in a mixing bowl. Stir together. Pour 1/3 of the mixture over the top of the bacon. Spread with a spoon.
Bake for 45 minutes, then pour another 1/3 of the sauce over the top. Bake for another 15 minutes. Slice and serve with remaining sauce.
Serve with mashed potatoes. Yummy!
