Tired of meatloaf smothered in ketchup?
Why not try our new Creamy Mushroom Meatloaf !!!
Step 1: Assemble Your Ingredients
This recipe makes enough to serve 8 people. Scale amounts accordingly.
2.5 lbs of ground beef
1 cup bread crumbs (approx)
2 10.4 oz cans cream of mushroom soup
olive oil (to grease the pan)
In case you were wondering what is in the pink flower bowl in the picture ...
I didn't have any bread crumbs in the pantry so I made some by combining some Stuffing bread (dried bread used as a base for making stuffing), oregano, basil, parsley, and ground sage.
Step 2: Mix It All Together
Combine the following in a large mixing bowl
Mix it all together.
grease the cooking pan
put in your meatloaf mix
Add the cream of mushroom soup on top of the meatloaf. I poked several holes into the meatloaf to get the soup down into the meat as well as on top of it.
The pan that I used ended up being too small and I had a small overflow problem. I transferred the meatloaf to a larger pan and finished cooking it.
Learn from my mistake ... if your soup is up to the top of your pan, your pan is too small ... get a bigger one BEFORE you put it in the oven.
Step 3: Cook and Serve
375 degrees for about 45 minutes.
I made two different gravies to go with the meal. The first gravy was a basic beef gravy made from beef broth and Roux. The second gravy was a mixture of the basic beef gravy and the liquid from the meatloaf baking pan.
I served the meatloaf with some Cheesy Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and Creamed Spinach.
