Simple Ingredients for this Easy Meatloaf Recipe

Lean Ground Beef. Using leaner meat will work the best, for example, ground chuck will give you the best results. You can also use a meat mixture, by using your choice of ground beef, ground turkey, ground pork, or ground veal if desired. 

Envelope of Lipton Onion Soup Mix. This is a key ingredient in successfully making a delicious-tasting meatloaf recipe. You may choose to use a different brand of onion soup mix, or even make your own dry onion soup mix if desired, but Lipton is especially good!

Worcestershire Sauce. Adding a little Worcestershire sauce is optional, however, I recommend it, because it helps to enhance your overall flavor, making it delicious tasting. 

Large Eggs. Eggs are an essential ingredient in this meatloaf recipe as well because they help to hold everything together. 

Breadcrumbs. Using bread crumbs in your meatloaf is the traditional route, which also helps to hold it together. An alternative to breadcrumbs is to add oatmeal, preferably quick oats, in the same amount to your meatloaf mixture.

Meatloaf Sauce:

Ketchup. Depending on how much sauce you like to make you will likely need about ½ cup ketchup added into the sauce mixture. 

Brown Sugar. To make the sauce for your meatloaf a little bit sweet, you can use about two tablespoons of brown sugar in the sauce. 

Barbecue Sauce. Adding BBQ sauce to your sauce mixture will round it out and give it the full flavor.

How to Make Lipton Onion Soup Meatloaf Recipe

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

To make the delicious meatloaf, you will first want to start out by making the meatloaf mixture. Add the thawed ground meat of your choice to a large bowl. 

Add in the onion soup mix, Worcestershire sauce, eggs, and breadcrumbs on top of the ground beef mixture. 

Mix the meat thoroughly, then form it into a loaf shape.

I like to use a meatloaf pan, or bread pan, so that it has edges to help hold its shape, but you could also use a baking sheet if desired.

Line your meatloaf pan with parchment paper, or spray it with cooking spray to help keep it from sticking. 

Transfer the loaf-shaped meat to your prepared pan and place it into the preheated oven. Bake for approximately 1 hour. 

After one hour has passed, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature in the center of the meatloaf. Make sure that the internal temperature has reached an internal temperature of 165°F for it to be fully cooked, due to the egg contents.

When your meatloaf is nearing fully cooked, remove it from the oven, and make the sauce. 

To make this sauce, combine your catch-up, brown sugar, and barbecue sauce together. Whisk to combine. Then add the sauce mixture on top of the meatloaf. 

adding the topping to the meatloaf

Place the meatloaf back into the oven and continue cooking for an additional 10-15 minutes so that the sauce caramelizes.

After your meatloaf has been fully cooked, you can remove it from the oven and allow address for a few minutes before serving. And then serve and enjoy your delicious Lipton onion soup meatloaf recipe! 

Side Dishes to Serve with the Meatloaf

There are so many delicious side dishes that you can enjoy along with your Lipton onion soup meatloaf recipe. Some of our favorites include green beans, broccoli salad, and mashed potatoes.

How to Store Leftover Meatloaf

At Room Temperature. After your meatloaf has been cooked and should be left at room temperature for no more than two hours before it goes bad. After that, it must be stored in the fridge. It is going to be best if stored in the fridge as soon as you are done serving the meatloaf.

In the Fridge. After your meatloaf has a cold, you can store any leftovers in the fridge. First, transfer them to an airtight container, or wrap them securely in plastic wrap. After that, you can place your leftover meatloaf into the fridge for up to 3 to 4 days.

In the Freezer. You can also cut your leftover meatloaf into individual slices of meatloaf and place them into a freezer bag before storing them in the freezer. Your leftover slices of meatloaf can be kept in the freezer for up to three months.

Tips and Tricks for the Classic Meatloaf Recipe

Cover with Aluminum Foil. One of the best tips that I can share with you for when you are baking your meatloaf is to cover it with aluminum foil while the meatloaf bakes. This will help to keep the moisture inside of your meatloaf and help it to cook all the way through before browning the outside. When your meatloaf is almost done, you can remove the aluminum foil cover, and continue baking it for a few minutes to help the meatloaf brown.

Meatloaf is a classic comfort food, which is often enjoyed during cooler months of the year. Although this dish can be enjoyed anytime you have a craving. To make a superior meatloaf, you can simply use Lipton onion soup mix to help flavor your average meatloaf.

Recipe Variations

Bacon Wrapped. In addition to making a classic meatloaf, you could also mix things up a little bit by wrapping the meatloaf with bacon after your ground meat has been shaped into a loaf. You can then brush the sauce on the outside of the bacon, enjoy a delicious bacon wrapped meatloaf.

Gluten Free. Another good way to make your meatloaf a little bit different is to use quick oats rather than breadcrumbs. This will still give you the same overall texture meatloaf but allow you to make it so that it is gluten-free. If you need to skip the oats or breadcrumbs altogether, you can also do this as a gluten-free version. However, it’s important to note that if you are going to omit the quick oats and breadcrumbs, then you’ll want to cut back on the liquid so that your meatloaf doesn’t end up super runny.
