Judy's Mom's Meatloaf

Thanks to loyal volunteer and board member, Judy Wright, for passing on this recipe from her mom! It's become an old-reliable in our kitchen, and is always a crowd-pleaser.

  • 12 cups bread crumbs
  • 4 cups milk
  • 6 envelopes onion soup mix
  • 12 eggs
  • 6 cups ketchup
  • 3/4 cup mustard
