I’ve been on a huge sweets-kick here lately with the holidays being in full swing. I looked back at my recent recipe posts and realized that most of them were sugary concoctions, so I thought I’d throw a little savory into the mix and share one of my go-to, fool-proof recipes that my family absolutely loves. I love to prepare it on nights when I don’t feel like doing a whole lot of prep work in the kitchen, and when I need something that’s totally easy to pair any sort of side dish with.
This super simple meatloaf recipe only requires 4 ingredients, yet it’s loaded with flavor and is super moist & delicious! There’s nothing worse than a dry meatloaf, but this one is totally perfect every time!
I’ve shared before how my family very rarely buys beef. My husband is a hunter and provides nearly all of the red meat that our family consumes throughout the year. Venison can be used just like hamburger meat, so if venison isn’t your thing, just sub in 1 lb of ground beef for the meat! 🙂
In addition to 1 lb of ground meat, you’ll also need a box of stuffing mix (I normally use cornbread flavor, but chicken works great), an egg and 1 cup of water. Simply combine all of the ingredients together and bake in a greased loaf pan for 45 minutes at 350 F. Voila! Dinner is served!
Here’s a free printable version of the recipe if you’d like to save it and share it with your family this week. I betcha it’ll become a staple dish in your meal reservoir that your family will love!
