We all love Grandma’s recipes are so good, and Grandma A’s meatloaf recipe is always the perfect good old-fashion comfort food I crave during the colder months. The perfect Sunday dinner recipe for your family.
Grandma A’s meatloaf recipe – the next best ground beef recipe you will make this month! Meatloaf is such a classic recipe and is always one my family devours.
During the winter months, I am always wanting a taste of those hearty good old-fashioned comfort food meals. It is so simple to make and of course super delicious.
My grandma taught me how to make this recipe and I look forward to teaching all of my kids just how to make it like Grandma A! Family recipes are the ones I always tend to make for an easy yet memorable Sunday dinner recipe.
You can see more of Grandma’s recipe in our YouTube video that we made with the Best Home Cooked Meals from Grandma! In Memory of Grandma Virginia.
Serve this amazing meatloaf with some of our scrumptious side dishes. A few of my favorites to make are our Oven Roasted Green Beans Recipe, Twice Baked Potato Casserole Recipe, and some Easy Homemade Rolls Recipe.
Ingredients You Need to Make Our Grandma A’s Meatloaf Recipe:
- Ground beef
- Onion, chopped
- Canned tomato soup
- Worcestershire sauce
- Brown sugar
How To Make Our Grandma A’s Meatloaf Recipe:
To begin, start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Then prepare a 9×5 inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray and then set it aside.
Now, place the ground beef in a large mixing bowl along with the eggs, chopped onion, ketchup, salt, pepper, oatmeal, 1/2 of the canned tomato soup, and 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce.
You can either use a wooden spoon to mix it all together, or I tend to just use my hands as it mixes together so much easier that way.
Once it is all mixed together, mold it into a loaf and place it into the prepared loaf pan.
After you have the meatloaf in the pan, mix together the remaining brown sugar, tomato soup, and Worcestershire sauce together in a small mixing bowl until it is completely combined.
Then pour the brown sugar mixture over top of the meatloaf.
When that is all done, place the meatloaf in the oven uncovered, and let it bake for 90 minutes or until the internal temperature is 160 degrees.
Once the loaf is done baking, remove it from the oven and carefully slice it, serve it, and enjoy!
To Make This Classic Sunday Dinner Recipe You Will Need:
- Large mixing bowl
- 9×5 pan (THESE are great and even have little handles to grip!)
- Nonstick cooking spray
- Small mixing bowl
Do You Always Have Issues with Your Meatloaf?
While I love meatloaf as much as the next person, sometimes I am off my game it does not come out exactly perfect. My guess is that I am not alone!
If you have had issues in the past with your meatloaf, take a look over Kichn’s list of 5 Common Mistakes to Avoid When Making Meatloaf.
You might find them helpful and end up making your best meatloaf yet!
What is the Secret to Moist Meatloaf?
It is actually quite simple! In order to create a moist meatloaf, you need to make sure there is enough fat in the meat you are using.
While I tend to like to use a leaner meat for a lot of recipes, this is not the recipe for leaner meat. You will want to make sure that the meat has at least 15% fat content to keep a nice and moist meatloaf.
What is Traditional Meatloaf Made of?
I would say that Grandma A’s meatloaf is like the traditional meatloaf recipe with a little bit of flare. You need to make sure that you are using ground meat (like ground beef), eggs, a combining agent (like oats or bread crumbs), onion, ketchup, as well as salt and pepper if you don’t have another way you’re adding flavor.
Our recipe adds the Worcestershire sauce, tomato soup, and brown sugar for added flavor and deliciousness!
Should I Cook Meatloaf Covered or Uncovered?
Generally, I cook meatloaf uncovered. But, if you are worried about the meatloaf burning (especially if you are using a type of meat with a lower fat content) then you can always cover the meatloaf with aluminum foil and then remove the foil for the last 15 minutes to make sure that the glaze gets a nice caramelization going.
