Vegetable Soup Meat Loaf Recipe
I found this recipe in a booklet that came with my new Hotpoint stove that my parents purchased in 1950. Mom tried the recipe and it has been a family favorite since. I usually serve meat loaf with baked potatoes and we also enjoy cold slices for sandwiches.
- 2 slices white bread, torn
- 1 can (10-1/2 ounces) condensed vegetarian vegetable soup, undiluted
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
- 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
- 1. In a large bowl, soak bread in soup for 5 minutes. Stir in the onion, egg, salt and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into an 8-in. x 4-in. oval.
- 2. Line an 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish with foil and grease the foil. Place meat loaf in pan; top with tomato sauce.
- 3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160° and meat is no longer pink. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Yield: 6 servings.
