Simple Weeknight Classics- Toasted Onion Herb Meatloaf

One of my favorite recipes to make after a long and tiring day is Easy Classic Meatloaf using Victoria Gourmet's Toasted Onion Herb Seasoning. This recipe only calls for six ingredients, all of which I often have on hand, and requires minimal preparation time. Preheat oven to 350°

I choose to use 85% lean ground beef when making this recipe but you could easily substitute a meatloaf mix consisting of ground beef, pork and veal or even ground turkey depending on your particular taste. Use your favorite brand or style of Ketchup and Mustard. I used Heinz and Grey Poupon but yellow mustard will work fine if that is more your style. When I am looking to make a quick and easy meal I go to the breadcrumbs that can always be found in my pantry. You can certainly make your own if you have the time or use unseasoned Panko bread crumbs if that is what you have on hand. One of the many highlights of this recipe for me is the lack of dishes, just one mixing bowl and a large baking pan or casserole dish.  Once all of the ingredients are placed in the bowl I mix them together with my hands.  If you have an aversion to getting your hands all slimy then by all means use a spoon or fork. Once the ingredients are all mixed together you will want to transfer them to the center of a large oven safe pan that has sides. Form the ingredients into a round loaf to ensure even cooking. A plain old baked potato is always a good accompaniment to meatloaf.  You will want to allow an hour for a baked potato so place it in the oven 10 minutes before the meatloaf. Make sure the oven has reached 350° and pop in the pan. The next 50 minutes you are free to do as you please, this recipe requires no babysitting. Once the meatloaf is out of the oven you will want to let it sit for 5-10 minutes before serving. Slice it up, serve  and enjoy! Best,                 Victoria
