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.

Ingredients for Tomato Soup Meatloaf

  1. 1 can tomato soup
  2. ¼ cup milk
  3. 1½ pounds chopped beef
  4. 2 carrots finely chopped
  5. 1 medium onion chopped or 2 shallots
  6. 2 stalks of celery finely chopped 
  7. 1 -2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
  8. 1 whole egg
  9. 1 tsp each salt & pepper
  10. 1 cup approximate panko bread crumbs
  11. ½ cup  flavored bread crumbs
  12. 2 Tbs butter

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.

Spoon into a loaf pan and press to level.  Add the milk to the soup remaining in the can and stir to combine, then pour over the top of the loaf.

Place into the center of a 350º oven and bake for about 1 hour.  Remove from the oven once cooked and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes,  Then slice and serve.

Tomato Soup Gravy

  1. 1 can Campbell’s Tomato Soup
  2. 1 shallot finely diced
  3. 1 Tbs butter
  4. 1 Tbs flour
  5. 5 oz. whole milk
  6. 3 Tbs Worcesterhire Sauce
  7. 2 Tbs Dark Brown Sugar

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.

Meatloaf

While still on the quest to find affordable housing, we are definitely using up every thing in the freezer and pantry.  So here’s a meatloaf recipe to add a little flavor to a simple dish.  For years we had a recipe for meatloaf that used wheat germ in it.  It was tasty but had a number of after effects, so I’ve worked a different version that’s a little less unbinding.

This one like many recipes is not written in stone.  I probably would have added onions, that had been sautéed, if we had them.  The amounts of ingredients are also subject to interpretation, the bread crumbs could vary quite a bit, it’s really all about cooking by “eye”.  You could also vary the meat by adding ground pork or veal into the mix.  Feel free to experiment.

Ingredients for Meatloaf

  1. 2 #’s ground beef fairly lean
  2. 2 eggs
  3. ¼ cup whole milk
  4. 1 Tbs garlic salt
  5. 1 Tbs pepper
  6. 3 -4  Tbs Worcestershire sauce
  7. ½ cup ketchup
  8. 3 – 6+ cups Italian style Panko bread crumbs
  9. ¼ – ½ cup BBQ Sauce

Directions for Meatloaf

Mix the beef, eggs, milk, salt and pepper, Worcestershire sauce and ketchup thoroughly.  Begin to add the Panko bread crumbs and combine, continue until you have slightly moist not wet mixture that holds together well.

Place into a loaf pan and press to even out.  Pour a layer of BBQ sauce about ¼ of an  inch thick over the top.  Bake for 50 – 60 minutes in a 350° oven.  When done remove from oven and let sit to rest for a few minutes before slicing.

Be adventurous try adding finely diced carrots, or diced green chilies, celery, diced pepper of any color, sautéed onions the list goes on.
