Stove Top Dressing Meatloaf

I remember growing up and dreading the odd time that my father would make meatloaf, I detested it. Judging by Blake’s reaction the first time I made this Stove Top Dressing meatloaf, he wasn’t a meatloaf fan as a child either. This recipe is going to change how you think of meatloaf, I promise.

We are such big Stove Top Dressing fans… well, my oldest claims she hates it, but she eats it when I make meatloaf or when I make Stove Top Chicken Casserole. She doesn’t just doesn’t know she likes it I guess. Or this Momma has gotten good at “hiding” the good stuff when cooking.

What You Need:

  • 1 box of Stove Top Dressing, prepared
  • 1 egg
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • ketchup, optional
  • BBQ sauce, optional

How to Make Stove Top Meatloaf

I dislike touching raw meat so much that I have other ways of dealing with it, like mixing ground beef and all the ingredients together for meatballs or meatloaf.

One of those ways is to use my potato masher. I love this thing, it is worth its weight in gold to me. It mashes my potatoes, mixes ground beef with whatever I need, I also use it when I am browning ground beef and want to break it up.

I like to mix together my ground beef with all the ingredients without the Stove Top Dressing first, just to get it mixed really well.

You are going to make your Stove Top Dressing according to the package instructions. Try not to just sit down with a fork and eat it all like I could, save some for the meatloaf.

Add the Stove Top Dressing into the bowl with your ground beef and the remaining ingredients, if you are mixing this with your hands, make sure to let the Stove Top Dressing cool down a bit first.

I would love to have a meatloaf pan, but in the meantime, I use a cookie sheet lined with tin foil, and a sprayed down cooling rack. Form it into a log, and place it on the cooling rack. All the fat drains off, and you get a crispness to it that I kind of like.

I like to drizzle a ketchup or bbq-sauce over the top of our before cooking.

Bake it, let it cool for a few minutes before cutting into it.

This is without a doubt our favorite meatloaf recipe.

  1. Mix together the egg, stove top, and ground beef, really well.
