This recipe, besides of course the vegetarian "meat" is an old recipe's of my mom's that no one can remember where it came from... She thinks it was just something she threw together one day with what she had on hand. Whether you try it with real meat or vegetarian style... I guarantee you will LOVE this dish!
1.5 of Ground Beef or Morning Star Farms Griller's Original Burgers thawed (8 patties or two boxes)
1 package of saltines crushed
1 envelope of Lipton Mushroom Onion dried soup
1/4 cup water
Worcestershire sauce (a generous amount of splashes)
1 diced small or medium onion
1 diced small or medium green bell pepper
Throw all of these ingredients together in a LARGE bowl and mish mash away with your hands.... Yes your hands... it's better if you just get dirty! Just keep kneading away till everything is combined perfectly. Then pat everything together (it'll stick together a little easier if you are using real meat... if you are going vegetarian style continue patting together softly and it'll be just fine). Transfer your meatloaf to a glass baking dish and form into whatever shape you like. Pop it in the oven for 35 minutes (both for the real meat or vegetarian meat) at 350 degrees. After 35 minutes take it out and pour one small can of tomato sauce over it and then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Pop it back in the oven for another 15 minutes and VOILA! A delicious meatloaf at your fingertips!!!
