A couple months ago I perfected this recipe and my boyfriend just can't get enough. We now enjoy "Meatloaf Tuesday" in our little apartment every week.
He has even asked me to make it for his friends and for dinner parties. I know, I know ... it's not the prettiest dish, it's MEATLOAF. But they don't care, trust me.
Men just want good meatloaf and mashed potatoes for the rest of their lives.
Ladies, write this recipe down.
He asked me to marry him about a week ago over a romantic dinner at home. Candles, caprese salad, and a princess cut diamond. It was perfect. I said yes of course, and we have been drinking champagne ever since :)

1.5 lbs Ground Meatloaf Mix (your grocer carries it, should be next to the ground beef)
1 packed Lipton Beefy Onion Soup Mix
1/2 Red Onion, chopped
4 oz. baby bella sliced mushrooms
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 cup ketcup
1/2 cup brown sugar
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Place your mushrooms in a food processor, pulsing them about 4 times until you have tiny mushroom crumbles. Pour them in a large bowl with your chopped onions. Add your ground meatloaf mix Lipton Beefy Onion Soup mix, eggs, bread crumbs, and 1/2 of your cup of ketchup.
Mix together with your hands until combined. Don't over mix.
Line the bottom of a large casserole pan with foil, leaving enough to fold over the top later. Place your meat in the foil lined casserole pan. Shape into a loaf about 2 inches high and 6 inches long. (if your loaf is too tall it wont cook in the center)
Sprinkle your brown sugar on top and then your remaining ketchup. Cover with foil and bake for 50 minutes.
Let sit for about 15 minutes before serving, your slices may not be perfect. If there is any fat that has cooked out of the around the loaf, remove with a spoon before serving.
