Tomato Soup Meatloaf
I’m always on the look out for new ideas. Some times I just experiment or I surf the web to see if any one else has a comparable idea. I found a few recipes that had my idea so I was pretty sure it would work first time out. The “web” is a great place for lessening the “trial and error” time. I also feel that there are a few things in life that just can’t be improved upon. In the food world Campbell’s Tomato Soup is one of those. I think, for a lot of people, this soup includes a lifetime of memories with every spoonful.

Directions for Tomato Soup Meatloaf
In a saute pan with the butter, saute the onion, carrot, and celery until all are slightly softened. Remove from heat and allow to cool .
In a large bowl combine the ground beef, the softened vegetables, about 2/3 of a can of tomato soup, Worcestershire sauce, egg, salt and pepper, and ½ cup of flavored bread crumbs. Stir to combine all the ingredients. Continue to add the Panko crumbs until you have a not quite totally dry mixture.

Directions for Tomato Soup Gravy
This is a strictly optional addition but does keep the theme of the loaf in the same ballpark and makes a welcome accoutrement to the dish besides ketchup.
In a sauce pan melt the butter and then put in the shallot and cook until the vegetable is softened. Add the flour and stir to combine and cook off the raw flour.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stirring to combine bring up to a boil. Allow to thicken and serve on the side. Also goes great with other meat and poultry dishes.
