I was on Pinterest the other night and pinned a meatloaf recipe from Campbells Soup — Onion-Crusted Meatloaf with Roasted Potatoes.  I made it last night for dinner.  OMG.  Best meatloaf I have ever made or eaten. Period.


1 1/2 pounds of ground meat (your choice)
1 can of tomato soup
1 beaten egg
1 TBL Worcestershire Sauce
One can of French-Fried Onion Rings
6 small potatoes

I took liberties with the recipe and used Trader Joe’s Organic Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper soup and their version of French-Fried Onion Rings.  And I also used small red, purple and white potatoes.

You mix the meat with 1/2 cup of soup, egg, Worcestershire Sauce, and 1/2 can of the onions.  Shape into a loaf in a greased pan.  I cut up the potatoes in even quarters and placed them around the meatloaf.  Pour 1/2 cup of soup on top of the meatloaf.  Bake for 1 hour at 400 degrees. 

About three minutes before it’s done baking, sprinkle more onions on the meatloaf and return to the oven for another 3-5 minutes.  Be sure to watch it because the onions can burn.

We served the potatoes and meatloaf with English peas.  The meatloaf had the best flavor and the onions added a nice seasoned, crispness to the meat.

Miss Bee hates meatloaf, more the word “loaf” I think.  So, Mr. Bee told her it was Beef and Onion Melange (melange is a French word for mixture).  She bought it until she saw it in the oven.  But, she admitted it was pretty good and she ate her entire portion.  So, I think we have a winner.
