If your family dislikes tomato based meatloaf like mine does then this is the meatloaf for you! Sour cream and onion dip keeps the meat moist and it is served with a delicious sour cream and mushroom sauce. My family usually adds a bit of Cajun seasoning blend since we Louisianians like our food spicy. This recipe just might change your family's mind about meatloaf!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, 1/2 cup of the onion dip, bread crumbs, celery, onion, dill, salt, pepper and eggs. Use your hands to mix until well blended. Press into a 9x5 inch loaf pan, or form a loaf and place it in a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the internal temperature of the loaf is 160 degrees F (72 degrees C).
  4. While the meatloaf is baking, prepare the sauce. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the remaining onion dip and cream of mushroom soup. Cook, stirring until heated through. Spoon over servings of meatloaf.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This was the best meatloaf I have ever made, but I did make a few changes. First of all, I didn't use dip, I used a half cup sour cream and added a packet of beefy onion soup mix. Also, I made my own gravy because my family prefers beef gravy. It was very moist and flavorful and I will be making it again tomorrow.




Is the mother of invention sprouted sometimes from desperation?? lol. I found myself w/out onion soup mix for this going through my packets I found a seasoning packet from a box of stovetop stuffing (in which I had used the bread crumbs for another recipe). This was the only change to the meatloaf recipe. WE LOVED IT! What a nice variation from having to use ketchup or tomato sauce, etc. Will be a 'for sure' rotation in our dinner menus! Thanks for sharing this recipe w/us! :) The gravy was 'icing on the cake'..very creamy and yummy on mashed potatoes and the meatloaf!! Ok, I'll stop gushing now lol. (honestly the submitter and I are NOT related lol)




Outstanding! Such a wonderful change of pace from the *sweeter* meatloaves I tend to make. This held together wonderfully and the flavor was out of this world. The taste reminded us of a mix between Salisbury Steak and Beef Stroganoff. I left out the celery and dill weed. I also cut down the bread crumbs to about 3/4 cup. This helped to keep it from drying out. My meatloaf was done in 45 minutes. So, I topped it with the sauce and baked it for another 10 minutes. I will make this again and again! Thanks, TRAVLEE! :o)
