I have been making it this way for 49 years. I usually add an extra egg and 1 to 1-1/2 lbs extra lean ground beef. I also put a layer of catsup on the top before cooking. The tomato soup makes a great tasting sauce. I still have my old Campbell Soup cookbook that I received as a shower gift almost 50 years ago. Read More

My husband LOVES meatloaf but complains that I put too much onion in it. The onion soup mix eliminated that problem! Delicious! We put ketchup on top instead of the tomato soup. Read More

I made this as written except that I mixed all of the tomato soup in with the meatloaf. The recipe lives up to its name. Read More

This meatloaf was pretty good. I mostly followed the recipe. I only had 1.5 lbs of ground beef and I added a one chopped up bell pepper. Also I didn't use the other half of the soup for the topping because I used ketchup instead. Read More

Love this meatloaf and so does my 7 year old picky eater! Only change I make is in the sauce. I use the remaining condensed soup but mix with ketchup and honey and drizzle over the meatloaf when there's about 20 minutes remaining of cook time. Read More

This was incredible! It was the first time I ever made meatloaf and it was surprisingly simple. It came out extremely moist and my husband and son completely inhaled it! Definitely recommend! Read More

This was awesome!! made it as written but instead bred crumbs I used crushed seasoned croutons left over from a Thangsgiving stuffing mix. I also used 2/3 of the soup in the mix and laid 1 full strip of apple smoked bacon along w/remaining 3rd of the soup across the top before baking. Moist and delicious! I served it w/oven mac and cheese and steamed veggies. It created a perfect hearty Wisconsin winter plate! Read More
