"No Ketchup" Meat LoafMy husband was the inspiration for creating this meatloaf recipe. He was never a big fan of meatloaf because he didn’t like the ketchup taste, so I came up with this recipe. It was an instant success, not only with my husband, but my “I don’t like meatloaf” daughter-in-law as well. Try it, you just might like it!

3 pounds ground beef chuck
2 eggs, well beaten
2 (10 oz.) cans diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained*
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
1 package meatloaf seasoning
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced celery
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients until well blended ( I find that using my hand is a faster, easier way to do this). However, you may use a large spoon if you prefer.

2. Press meat mixture in bottom of a 2 quart casserole dish. Make a ridge around outside edges of meat mixture. This will allow space to contain the drippings.

3. Bake in 350 degree F oven for about 1 hour. Drain the drippings twice during cooking. Cut into squares to serve.
