Bob’s Meatloaf

I know meatloaf does not have the best reputation as being a family favorite, but my kids really do gobble this version up. It’s a favorite of adults too! Another one of my mom’s recipes…from the name you can guess that it’s one my dad’s favorites too.

What you need:

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 package dry onion soup mix
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 TBSP BBQ sauce (optional – this really makes the recipe sing, but I rarely have BBQ sauce. Whenever I can pick up a few extra BBQ dipping sauces at a fast food place I will bring them home to keep on hand for meatloaf. but the recipe turns out good even without BBQ sauce)
  • 1/4 lb Ritz crackers, crushed (that’s a whole sleeve)


  • 2 TBSP mustard
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1 TBSP honey

What to do:

Mix the ground beef and eggs. Mix in everything else (except the sauce stuff) and mix well with hands. Fold into meatloaf pan or use a muffin pan and fill each “muffin” 2/3 full – in this hockey loving house we call them meatloaf pucks. This recipe should make 10-11.

Mix all the sauce ingredients together and top the meatloaf or pucks

For a meatloaf pan, bake at 350 for 1.5 hours. If using a muffin pan, bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
