Mother's Cream of Mushroom Meatloaf {Granny's Recipe}

Cream of Mushroom Meatloaf is a meatloaf recipe my Mother use to make as an alternative to the traditional meatloaf recipes made with tomato sauce or ketchup.

She made it with a can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup, a package of Lipton Onion Soup Mix, and oatmeal.  I used a half of a can of soup to create a moist and flavorful meatloaf, and we. prefer crushed saltine crackers instead of the oatmeal, but you are welcome to use oatmeal if you prefer.  I spread the rest of the soup over the meatloaf and baked it uncovered.

This recipe is as scrumptious as the Old Fashioned Meatloaf recipe I make all the time, and there were leftover meatloaf sandwiches made from this one too.  Enjoy!

Cream of Mushroom Meatloaf

2 lbs. ground hamburger (80/15)
1 cup saltine cracker crumbs (oatmeal or bread crumbs)
1 envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1 teaspoon coarse black pepper
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper  
2 eggs
1/2 cup evaporated milk (whole milk or half and half)
1 can cream of mushroom soup (divided)
1 can cream of mushroom soup for sauce
2-3 cups whole milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a large baking dish with a non stick cooking spray; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine saltine cracker crumbs, onion soup mix, black pepper, bell peppers, eggs, milk, and
1/2 can of soup, and mix all together until well blended.

Be careful not to handle the meat mixture to much.  Shape into a round bun and place prepared dish.

Bake in the oven for 1 hour or until meatloaf is done.   Spoon remainder of soup  over the meatloaf and return to the oven for another 15 minutes.  Cool 15 minutes and slice.

To make a sauce for the meatloaf--heat 1 can of mushroom soup adding enough milk to thin out for a sauce.  Serve over meatloaf slices.
