Perfect Tender Meatloaf with Gravy

Perfect Tender Meatloaf with Gravy



I’ve had a lot of meatloaf that I didn’t care for, and I finally decided I needed to develop my own recipe for a really good one.  I wanted it to be soft and tender, not chewy.  I wanted it to have plenty of flavor and a great tasting gravy to go with it.  It wasn’t easy.  It took me several attempts before I was on the right track.  At one point, the meatloaf tasted good, but it didn’t hold together and just fell apart when I tried to slice it.  I continued working on it, making changes to it each time.  Then one day I switched out the bread crumbs for cracker crumbs and added another egg.  That was the right move.  Now the meatloaf tastes even better, thanks to the buttery crackers, and it holds together while still being nice and tender.  I named it Perfect Tender Meatloaf, and I think you’ll agree that it lives up to its name.


Here’s a look at some of the ingredients used in this recipe.

Also, you’ll notice in the recipe that I suggest using a food processor to crush the crackers and to finely chop the onions.  That’s to keep from having anything chunky in the meatloaf so that the consistency will be as smooth as possible.  Enjoy!  Meatloaf
