Best Meatloaf

Dish: DInner
Dish Type: Meats
Cooking Method: Baked
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Servings: 6
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1hr 30 min

  • pounds 2 - Ground Chuck
  • Package 1 - Dry onion soup mix
  • can 1 - Cream Mushroom soup

Take large sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil.

Mix Ground chuck and dry onion soup mix together.

Form into loaf shape and lay on aluminum foil.

Place cream of mushroom soup on top of meatloaf.

now wrap up and seal all the edges of the aluminum foil so it will not leek out.

Put on a shallow pan and bake at 375 for 1hr & 30 Minutes.


I use two cans of the soup as that is what makes the gravy to serve over rice or mashed potatoes.

I use part of a can of Tomato Puree and use any leftover bacon.

This is a nice simple recipe and very good. I love meatloaf. I also tried it with Golden Mushroom Soup. It was really good too with chunks of mushroom and a nice brownish gravy. Could also cut up some red peppers either for the meatloaf itself or in the gravy. Thanks for sharing, Cathie. Lorraine

Sounds very yummy. And easy. Did you ever try this in the crockpot?

I would think you could substitute cream of chicken soup in place of cream of mushroom.

My family does not like anything with mushrooms included, what can I substitute?

My family does not care for mushroom soup. Does anyone know what I can put in its place?
