Are you like me? Always switching up your meatloaf recipe?? I use a few of the same ingredients all the time like the eggs, mustard and Worcestershire sauce, but change up a few things almost every time I make this! Here is a base, but feel free to add/subtract what you do/don't like. The stuff I always use will be in bold print and the other is just a suggestion!

1-2 lbs hamburger meat (I use Turkey a lot too!)
1 egg
Tbsp or so of mustard
Tbsp or so of ketchup
Approx 1 cup of bread crumbs (I run out of this a lot, so I substitute stuffing mix often!)
A few shakes of Worcester sauce
Onion to your liking

-Mold and place in baking dish and bake at 350* for 45-60 min depending on size.

As you can see I really only use about 4 things regularly! I know some people use crushed ritz or saltine crackers as a sub for bread crumbs, but I have been using the bread crumbs from the stuffing box more and more...it gives it a nice flavor. Just be sure to crush the stuffing mix like you would anything else. I have also used Panko (Japanese style bread crumbs) before and that works well too! I am a fan of ketchup, but my dad enjoys BBQ sauce in his loaf! Have fun experimenting!
