The best recipe for meatloaf is on the back of the box for Lipton Onion Soup Mix. For the ground beef...make sure to get "meatloaf mix". Most food stores sell...its a mixture of pork, beef, and veal. Very tasty. Also the recipe says to put in 2/3 ketchup...forget about the ketchup and put in barbeque sauce. It is excellent!!!! Trust me, I make it all the time!!!!
