The good beef loaf is one of my favorite foods!!! And this Copycat Cracker Barrel Meatloaf does not fall short of expectations either! This meatloaf dish from Cracker Barrel will undoubtedly become a staple in my cooking repertoire.
This meatloaf recipe asks for ground beef, onions, and a binder, much like the majority of meatloaf recipes. Ritz Crackers are the name of the game in this case. It also contains a little amount of finely chopped Green Bell Pepper.
The Ritz Crackers used in this recipe instead of saltines or bread as a binder give the meatloaf a buttery sweetness that I really like. I’m thinking about incorporating it into some of my other meatloaf recipes.
2 lbs. Ground beef
1 Small onion finely chopped
2 Large eggs
¾ C. Milk
25 Ritz crackers crushed into crumbs
½ C. Shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

1 tsp. Dijon mustard
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, onion, eggs, milk, cracker crumbs, shredded cheese, and salt and pepper to taste.
Form the mixture into a loaf shape, and place it in the center of a 9×13 baking dish.
In a bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard until well blended.
Bake for 35 minutes, remove and spread half of the ketchup mixture over the top.
Return the meatloaf to the oven and bake for another 15 minutes.
