Miss Betty's Meatloaf

We really love this meatloaf ! I have the recipe printed out, just to make sure I always have it.

This is from a lovely lady - Miss Betty who got the recipe from Recipe Hall Of Fame Cookbook--1999. 


1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/2 can tomato soup
1 cup pepperidge farm herb stuffing- I pulse 1/2 cup in food processor and add the other half from the bag. 
2 ribs celery- chopped
1 egg
1 large onion- chopped
1/2 cup American cheese,grated- I add a Mexican Blend
1/2 cup bell pepper,chopped- if it's a small pepper I add the whole thing
1 1/2 tsp.salt- didn't add. Soup has enough sodium in it.
1/4 pepper
bacon slices

2 tbsp.butter,melted
2 sauce
1 (8-oz.)can tomato sauce
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vinegar


Mix all meat loaf ingredients except bacon,form into a loaf and top with bacon slices to cover meat loaf.Pour sauce over top and cook at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes.Baste with sauce.

Why is the bacon missing on the meatloaf? I ate it when it came out of the oven!


  1. I have that book-haven't pulled it off the shelf in I don't know how long....and I have the second volume too. Great recipes in both-easy with easy to find ingredients.

    Bob loves meatloaf. I've made one with stuffing mix in it before and really liked the flavor-I tried it without grinding it once and we liked it better when I ground it up-didn't see the big pieces of bread in it......Bob said they looked like hunks of fat in the meat. OK then...........

    Thanks Linda and Miss Betty-another one I don't see posting on TOH any more...........

    1. This looks good. I love meatloaf. I will sure try this one. Thanks Linda.
