This easy to make beef meatloaf recipe is so flavorful from buttery, salty Ritz crackers instead of breadcrumbs!



  • 1 package (2 ounces) dry onion soup mix
  • 1 cup crushed Ritz crackers (about 20 crackers)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon mustard (dijon, yellow or spicy brown)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef or meatloaf mix


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add the soup mix, egg, crackers and milk to a large bowl. Mix together and let sit for 5 minutes for the milk to absorb. Then stir in the ketchup, mustard, salt, pepper, garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce.
  3. Add the ground beef to the bowl and mix gently to combine. Don’t overwork the meat because you’ll end up with a tougher meatloaf.
  4. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray and lightly add the meatloaf mixture, don’t pack the meatloaf mix into the pan.
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes until the beef is cooked through and no longer pink. Let the meatloaf rest for 5 minutes, turn out of the loaf pan, slice and serve.
