Mine is pretty plain but it is gobbled up...
2 pounds of ground beef - I usually don't use the leanest as I think it is to dry.. I got for the middle'ish... 2 eggs 1/3 cup of Italian bread crumbs 1/3 teaspoon of thyme Some onion, depending what your family likes..(I usually just use dry onions as I have a ton that I bought from the Amish people... but either is fine of course)
Mix and Bake at 350 for about an hour or a little longer (seems like Colorado it takes longer to cook.. I would check it maybe at 50 minutes)
I top with ketchup about 10 minutes before done.
Nothing fancy but we are not fancy eaters.. lol.. I saw one made with cheddar cheese and would like to try it sometime.

I like mine with ground turkey. I usually put in crumbled saltine crackers instead of bread crumbs. eggs, shredded cheese(what every flavor you want I usually use colby jack or cheddar), I always dice onion and saute them before adding them tot he meat (better texture for the family that hates onions), Seasoning is usually garlic salt, pepper, and onion powder. I use Heinz 57 sauce and Heinz ketchup mixed to half and half. I put some in the meat and then I safe some for the top but I let the meat loaf cook for 3/4 of the time and then put the sauce mix on top. My husband only likes ground beef so I usually do meatloaf muffins in our jumbo muffin pans. I mix up the meat loaf in large portions usually 2 pounds of each meat and then I proportion them into muffin size and freeze them raw. then I can take them out when we want meat loaf and make a couple meat loaf muffins each. We really like left over meat loaf.
2 pounds ground beef 1 package of meatloaf seasoning 2 eggs plain bread crumbs diced onion and celery 1/2 can of petite diced tomatoes mix together and separate into 2 loaves top with the remaining diced tomatoes and ketchup bake It is delicious!

Loc: Northern Indiana...Fighting Irish Country
1 ½ lbs. ground beef ½ c. bread crumbs (Italian style) 1 onion, finely chopped (I sometimes use onion flakes, works just as well) 1 egg, beaten 1 ½ t. salt ¼ t. pepper 2 - 8 oz. cans tomato sauce ½ c. water 3 T. vinegar 3 T. brown sugar 2 T. mustard 2 t. Worchestire sauce
Mix together beef, bread crumbs, onion, egg, salt, pepper and ½ can tomato sauce. Form a loaf and place in loaf pan. Combine rest of tomato sauce with remaining ingredients and pour over loaf. If there is sauce left, pour into small bowl and bake along with the meat loaf. Bake in 350° oven for 1 hour, 15 minutes.
The best I have ever had was at Cap City Diner in Columbus OH. They are famous for their meatloaf. They actually gave me the recipe when we ate there once. Years later I found it on the internet. I never even made meatloaf before I acquired this recipe. Now I make it often.
