The Best Meatloaf (or Meatballs) Ever!!

Ok so I’m sure some of you are probably thinking eww yuck…meatloaf!! But seriously this is the best meatloaf I have ever had! It’s my grandma’s recipe and my mom made it when I was growing up and now I make it.

Since I’ve been talking about once a month cooking I thought I’d share some of my favorite recipes for freezer meals. To catch up on my freezer meal series you can go here and here


  • 4 lbs group beef
  • 1 lb sausage
  • 2 cups onion, chopped fine
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups oatmeal or breadcrumbs 
  • 1 1/2 cups milk

Combine all ingredients in mixer and mix with dough hooks until full combined.

Meatloaf: Divide in half and put in two loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 90 minutes or until they reach 160 degrees in the center.

Meatballs: Shape into meatballs and brown on both sides in an electric frying pan. Add 2 cups of water mixed with 2 tsp beef soup base. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. The broth can be strained and thickened to make gravy.

Serve with ketchup on the side!

For all you Meat Loaf lovers out there here is a video to take you back to 1993!!
