Easy Lipton Onion Soup Meatloaf Recipe

Easy Lipton Onion Soup Meatloaf Recipe | Easy to prepare and … even though it is an old recipe – it’s still a good recipe. Now, obviously you can make your own brown gravy; but being an old school recipe … I figured I would stick to the original by using a jar or package mix. Where this came from – a small Church Cookbook from years ago. But, I am sure this same recipe is on thousands of websites and in thousands of cookbooks. Awesome meatloaf! I also subbed milk for the water, and it turned out awesome. Had leftovers with eggs for breakfast, where I discovered that meatloaf and peppered country gravy is the new best thing I ever had. Doubt I’ll ever be able to eat meatloaf again without it
I was shocked after asking my Grandmother for her lipton onion soup meatloaf recipe – it was this one! Very good, though we add milk instead of water, and 1 Tbsp of mustard too.

I don’t like meatloaf but I decided to try it and absolutely loved it…We will definitely be making this again

WOW! Very moist indeed. I think that we had to cook ours for about 1:15, but it came out yummy! Added a little extra ketchup on top before cooking. Served with steamed broccoli and butter-baked diced red potatoes (a little high in fat/calories). This meal will make its way back onto the table soon.

Minutes to Prepare: 5
Minutes to Cook: 60
Number of Servings: 8


  • 2 pounds ground beef (you can use all beef, or a mix of beef, veal, pork, or turkey)
  • 1 envelope (1 1/4 ounce) dry onion soup mix (Recipe Secrets Lipton Onion Soup & Dip Mix, it used to be called Lipton Onion Soup Mix)
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 eggs (extra large or large eggs, beaten)
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs (plain dry bread crumbs)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 jar (12 ounce) beef gravy (or 1 pkg gravy mix)
  • 2 teaspoons ketchup


  1. Meatloaf … Add the Onion Soup Mix to a large bowl along with the ketchup, eggs, bread crumbs, milk, and water. Mix well to combine. Then add the meat and gently mix until combined with the other ingredients; over mixing can create a dense tough meatloaf.
  2. Bake … I prefer to free form on a baking sheet lined with parchment or foil, but you can always use a loaf pan. Bake on the middle shelf at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hr. This will depend on what type of pan you cook the meatloaf in. A free form loaf usually cooks quicker than one in a loaf pan.
  3. Topping … If using a jar gravy, add the ketchup and gravy to a small pot and reheat on medium low heat. You can also use a package mix, follow the package directions, and add the ketchup at the end of cooking.
  4. About 15 minutes before the loaf is done, spoon on a little of the gravy on top of the loaf, then finish cooking in the oven. The rest over the gravy will be poured over the top when you serve it. Also, if you prefer to use your favorite tomato based sauce, please do so.
  5. Serve … Remove from the loaf pan or baking sheet, cover, and let it rest a few minutes before slicing. Then top with the remaining gravy, slice, and ENJOY!
