A quick and flavorful meat loaf

This is my own adaption of a recipe I got many years ago from a Campbell's soup cookbook. It usually gets rave reviews from guests:


(serves 4-6)




  1. Preheat oven to
  2. Mix all ingredients together well, shape into loaf and put into a pan. If you use a roasting rack instead of a bread pan, the loaf will be less greasy, and you can use some of the drippings to make the sauce.
  3. Bake 20 minutes uncovered at Turn down the oven to and continue baking, uncovered, for 55 more minutes.
  4. Make the sauce: Fry the mushrooms in the drippings and then combine the drippings and mushrooms with the mushroom soup and sour cream. Heat this mixture in a sauce pan. When meatloaf is done, put on a plate, cover with sauce, slice, and eat.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 15 minutes preparation, 1 1/2 hours cooking.
Precision: approximate measurement OK.
