From the Recipe Box {The Easiest Meatloaf Ever}

I found this recipe for meatloaf in a magazine a few years ago.  I have tweeked it a few times, and it is always a hit!  Even with Miss Ellie…

You only need six ingredients, it doesn’t get much easier than that!

You will need:
Ground Turkey or Ground Beef  roughly 1 1b.   (I have made it with both and they both are just as yummy!)
1 cup of Italian Cheese Blend
1 2 oz. envelope onion soup mix
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups saltines ( about 4 oz.), finely ground
1 cup fresh parsley chopped
1/3 cup water

Throw the cheese, soup mix, eggs, water, and parsley in a bowl, along with your meat of course!!

Enjoy!

Directions: 
in a large bowl combine the beef or turkey, soup mix, cheese, parsley, eggs, and saltines.  Add water and combine.  Transfer the meat mixture to a baking dish and form into a 9 inch loaf.  Bake until cooked through, about 40 to 50 minutes.

You can also add BBQ sauce to the top, cook for 25 minutes, pour the sauce over the top, and return to the over for 15 more minutes.

De-lish! And if you ever have the time to try a meatloaf that takes a little longer, I have to recommend Tyler Florence's. It's a yummy special little treat with a tomato relish.
