Marilyn's Meat Loaf Recipe

Our family of five loves baked ham.. so every time I make it, I set aside some thin slices to add delicious flavor to my special meat loaf.—Marilyn Gould, Belmont, Nova Scotia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the egg, tomato juice, bread crumbs, parsley, Italian seasoning, oregano, salt, pepper and garlic salt. Crumble beef over the top; mix well.

"I used cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella, and American cheese slices instead of mozzarella."

"After making this meat loaf recipe several times, I decided to try another. My family asked after tasting my newest effort, "Where's the ham?" They want and expect Marilyn's Meat Loaf, so I don't dare to make another type when my boys are home."
