[Recipe Share] Caden's Meatloaf

Thursday, April 24, 2014

Hello All Y'all! 
Caden here from The Randomosity of Southern Fried Domestication and I am wantin' to share with you one of my most favorite dinners EVER. 
I am so glad Elizabeth invited me over to show you! 
She is just a doll isn't she! Yes, yes she is!

Anywhoo, I will be showing you how to make meatloaf, this never fails. I love it...and so does my Husband! 
And his picky eater of a brother. 
The real Chicken Nugget Man


 My husband absolutely loves my meat loaf. He would have me make it once a week if I let him. My mom was the one I learned the meatloafery from. I think my mom used the recipe on the back of the Lipton Box, I make mine a tad different but not much. Who Cares Anyway?! People LOVE THE MEATLOAF.

I always make loaded mashed potatoes and thick cut green beans with bacon. I am a creature of habit. Well, almost. Muley is always bringing home a new BBQ sauce and I am constantly trying all of them in different ways. I shake things up a bit in the topping and I add the "BBQ Sauce of the Week" in there. Just play around. I know Rudy's BBQ Sauce mixed in is AHHHHHMMMAAAAZING. I know I have had a few picky eaters over and had to go heavy on the ketchup for the taste, that alone with the brown sugar is the bomb.com.

 I also have been using a lot of meat so that I can make my DOUBLEWHAMMYDINNER the next night. Muley knows that where there is loaf...MeatloafSammiches are soon to follow.

I think it is a toss up between which one he likes more. I usually do tator tots or potato cakes from the left over mashed potatoes. Last time I happen to do the potato cakes - they were annihilated before I could even take a picture! 

Everything I Need!


  • 2.5 lbs Ground Beef 
(I make a large loaf, I make THE BEST Meatloaf Sandwiches)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3/4 Cups Water
  • 3/4 Cup Ketchup
  • Beefy Onion Soup <--- Lipton
  • I always add Garlic Salt & Onion Powder

If it seems watery to you simply add a little Panko until it is moldable! Then form it into a loaf and stick it in a pan that fits!

I was so excited when Caden agreed to share her meatloaf recipe with you all! I have a meatloaf recipe that I love (and it's one of the only things I will actually COOK so my husband loves it by default...but actually really does love it too!) but I'm excited to try hers as well!

Happy Eating!

  2. I think my go to is Contessa's recipe, but the glaze is what makes meatloaf!

  3. Looks so delicious! I can't wait to try it over the weekend. I'll commend you for such an amazing diy site!

    1. It does look delicious! I can't wait to try her version as well!

  4. This looks yummy! I'm always looking for new recipes. Last time I tried a meatloaf it took so long that we didn't get to eat until 9:30 at night. Ha! :)
