Here is a classic dish that everyone should know how to make.  It is a cheap and easy dinner that is very filling.  It’s perfect for a tight budget family, which, unfortunately, is most Americans during this year of mandates.  But on a brighter note, this recipe is also delicious!  Who said cheap food couldn’t taste good?  Not this lady.  I’m all about cheap and easy.  Take a look at this recipe and let me know how you like it.  I plan on making it again real soon.  This will be a staple in my recipe box.









  • 1 large egg
  • 1  medium to large onion, chopped (Your choice of onion.  I like sweet onion, myself.)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup crushed saltine crackers (You can use bread crumbs if you like.)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • ⅓ cup ketchup
  • dried parsley

  2. In a large bowl, combine the beef, egg, onion, milk and cracker crumbs.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. place in a lightly greased 9×5-inch loaf pan, or form into a loaf and place in a lightly greased 9×13-inch baking dish.
  5. In a separate small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard and ketchup. Mix well and pour over the meatloaf.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.
  7. Garnish top with parsley, mostly for color.

Tip:  If you have any leftovers, you can freeze it for a later date, or even better, use it for lunch the next day.  Slap a slice between your favorite bread, add some barbeque sauce as a condiment and enjoy!
