  • About This Recipe

    “this meat loaf is sooooooo delicious…very moist, and with delicious gravy…It got raves in the Southern U S Cuisine..I promise it will be the only one you will ever make.. ok…just wait till you taste this..”


  • 2lbs ground chuck or 2lbsground round
  • 6slicesfresh bread
  • 1/2 cup milk or 1/2 cupcream
  • 2eggs, beaten with the milk or cream
  • 1smallonion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoongarlic powder
  • 2teaspoonssalt
  • 2teaspoonspepper
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup
  • Directions

  • put meat, bread (broken up in large pieces), both eggs beaten with the milk, onion, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • in a large bowl.
  • then mix about 1/2 the can of soup into meat mixture (if you are using 2 small cans mix 1 can into meat mixture).
  • mix thoroughly with VERY clean hands.
  • shape into a loaf (it will be soft, very mushy to be exact, a friend told me to say it is the consistancy of”tuna salad” or canned cat food”) don’t worry, it is a sort of flatter than most meat loafs.
  • Mix about 1 cup of water with remaining soup (if you are using the large can) and pour over loaf (or mix 1 cup water with the other small can and pour over loaf).
  • Bake at 375 degrees about 1 hour and 30 minutes (adding water periodically).
  • if the gravy looks too light — cook for another 30 minutes — it will never be too dry — but the gravy will have a little more flavor — keep scrapping down the sides.
  • It will be golden brown on top and you will have delicious gravy to use over rice or potatoes.
  • It is the best meat loaf you will ever eat (it is VERY moist and so delicious).
  • Reviews

  • “We just tried this recipe it was outstanding! Came out nice and most with just the right flavor. Thaank You! We well use these recipe often.”

  • “Sorry, but unfortunately my family and I did not care for this meatloaf recipe.I don’t know what went wrong since I followed the recipe exactly as was stated, but the end result was way too MUSHY and the meatloaf just fell apart.I am giving this recipe 3 stars since My daughter and I thought that the flavor was just alright.My husband and son did not like it at all.I thought that the cream of chicken soup would give the meatloaf a different twist, but I actually think that may have been what ruined this recipe for us.Sorry.”

  • “This is a very good meat loaf.I’m always looking for a meat loaf as good as my Mom made.This is close — very close.My gravy needed a little help.It tasted more like cream of chicken soup than gravy.I added some chicken stock, cream, pepper, a dash of worcestershire…”

  • “GREAT FLAVOR!!i used a pound of charolais and a pound of angus.My cream of ckn was a 15oz can so i guesstimated.used about 1/4t. minced garlic (jarred) instead of powder.didn’t have bread available so used the last 2/3c of plain bread crumbs i had on hand.i used a wide bread pan (think orowheat/arnold bread width) and it BARELY fit.baked for 45min then thinned a little bit of the remaining soup with some milk and smeared on top.ended up being REALLY salty…i think with the fresh bread it would probably be a good ratio of salty-goodness, but if you go another route, i’d recommend reducing the salt.we don’t do meatloaf often (i can get ten meals out of the same amount of ground beef), but if I end up making it this same way as tonight i’ll only do 3/4t-1t of salt.”

  • “I made this for dinner tonight and it was very good. I did change a few things. I used 2 cans of soup, one cream of celery and the other cream of mushroom. I mixed half of the cream of celery in with the meat. I didn’t use a loaf pan, I used a large casserole dish so I was able to mix the rest of the soup and pour it around the meatloaf. Doing this cut about 45 mins off the cook time. I cook my beef and pork to an internal temp of 160. Oh, and that is another thing that I changed. I used a pound of ground pork and a pound of ground beef.I will make this again for sure. Thanks for the great recipe!”

  • “Delicious. I have tried many meatloaf recipes and wasn’t satisfied. I wholly agree this will be “my” standard meatloaf recipe from now on. My only change was that I added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. Don’t forget about the meatloaf sandwiches the next day. They were super as well.”

  • “Glad you all enjoyed this…it is absolutely the BEST meat loaf..(or, dinner..for THAT matter) that my family and I ever have…and it does it a disservice to call it simply “meat loaf”..”

  • “I had relatives in from out of town and served this for dinner last night.The absolute, hands down BEST meatloaf I have ever tasted!My aunt begged me for the recipe! The “gravy” this recipe makes was so good over mashed potatoes!This will be my standard meatloaf recipe from now on!Thanks for sharing!”

  • “This was really good, my husband loves meals like this and he said he’d like this on a regular basis please, lol. I liked the way the soup made the gravy around the meat loaf. tasty dish, thanks for posting. =)”
