This is my favorite traditional meatloaf recipe.  I have to admit, I haven't tried hoards of meatloaf recipes.  The few I've tried I didn't care much for, so I've stuck with this same recipe for years.  If you love ketchup and brown sugar on top of your meatloaf, then this probably isn't the recipe for you.  There is no special kick to it, but it's moist, flavorful and the kids all love it AND it's super easy!
1 envelope lipton onion soup mix
2 lbs. ground beef
3/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
2 eggs
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup ketchup

Preheat oven to 350.  Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.  Shape into loaf in 13x9 inch baking or roasting pan.  Bake uncovered 1 hour or until done.  Let stand 10 minutes.  Serves 8.

Thanks for this recipe! It was super easy to make AND my kids loved it! I have never had and easier and better recipe for meatloaf before! Now my kids expect it at least once a week or at the very least once every two weeks! You are my saving grace!
