MMM Meatloaf!


 This is our family recipe for meatloaf…you’ll notice the addition of ketchup in the mixture and on top….my mom added ketchup to most foods she made.

Meatloaf is a staple in our family. If I ate some ground beef and just want simple ‘don’t have to watch it’ meal then meatloaf is the answer for me!

Always good served with a side of mashed potatoes and peas.

Here is the recipe 

 Tenen Family Meatloaf 


 2 lbs ground beef

1 medium onion, finely diced  ( approx.1 cup)

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 bread crumbs

1/2 cup ketchup- divided

1 tsp garlic

salt & pepper


 1. Put the ground beef into a large bowl.

2. Add the diced onions, beaten eggs and 1/4 cup of ketchup

3. Add the rest of the ingredients and mic well, I lie to use my hands

4. Place beef mixture into a 9 x 13 baking dish and form into a solid loaf shape

5. Brush the reserved 1/4 cup of ketchup all over the top

6. Bake at 350F for 1 hour or until throughly cooked

Let the meatloaf sit for a bit before cutting it

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
