Meat Loaf (close to Dad’s)

Hi guys, here is a oldie but goodie recipe.  Over the years I have been trying to replicate my father’s meatloaf but just have not been able to get it to taste like his.  There was one key ingredient that he did use but they no longer sell in the store which was a can of steak and mushroom gravy.  It was in a small blue can ,and I have searched the internet and just not able to find this little blue can of steak and mushroom gravy.   This is as close as I can get to his meatloaf.

I hope you give this a try and let me know what you thought of it.  It is really easy to make and all the ingredients and be purchased from Aldi.   There is also a video up on my channel on how to make this as well.  The link is below to my channel.





1 8 oz. can tomato sauce (or you can use Ketchup)

2 lbs. ground beef (turkey)

1 pk of brown gravy

1 to 2 cups of breadcrumbs (or crackers)

1 medium size onion diced

1 can black olive chopped

2 eggs

1 ½ tsp. garlic powder

1 ½ tsp. onion powder

1 tsp. A1 sauce

1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

Salt and pepper to taste



Pre-heat oven at 350 degrees

In a large mixing bowl add in the ground beef and then start adding in the listed ingredients one at a time.   With clean hands begin mixing all the ingredients together.

Once everything if well combined using a baking dish 9×11 put the meat into the dish.  Form the meat into a load as best as you can. Cover with tin foil and put in oven for about 45 minutes to 1 hour or until middle of loaf is completely cooked.
