my secret ingrediant is lots of ketchup, and a ketchup glaze. I probably use a cup of ketchup in the meatloaf with 1 lb ground beef? I'm not sure. I also use oatmeal, or bread crumbs, but oatmeal more often. Who has enough bread crumbs to actually stretch the ground beef. I also make sure there is a generous layer of corn syrup free ketchup on top of the meatloaf before I bake it, this makes a nice sweet rich glaze, and those top bites are the best part.
My basic recipe is :
saute 1 onion in olive or coconut oil or beef or chicken fat, cook up a little oatmeal (still don't have the right proportions yet, but tastes good). Let these cool a bit.
Add 1 egg, bread crumbs, oatmeal, onions, salt and pepper, a lot of ketchup, and 1 lb ground beef (fatty is good). put in a loaf pan, cover with lots of ketchup, bake at 375 for oh 30-45 minutes.
