Mixture For Meatballs, Meatloaf and Burgers

This meat mixture is great for meatballs, meatloaf or burgers!


2 lb. ground beef
4 slices white bread, soaked with water, squeezed out and broken into tiny pieces
3 eggs
1/2 C. grated Romano cheese
1 tsp. dried parsley
1/4 C. minced onion (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
3 Tbs. ketchup
4 Tbs. steak sauce


In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, bread, eggs, cheese, parsley and onion and season with salt and pepper to taste.

For meatballs: Form mixture into golf size balls and brown in a large skillet over medium heat for 5-10 minutes, or until well browned. Add to your favorite spaghetti sauce and simmer until meatballs are completely cooked through, about 15-20 minutes.

For meatloaf: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add 3 tablespoons ketchup to mixture, mix well, form into a loaf and place in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 75-90 minutes.

For burgers: Add 3-4 tablespoons steak sauce to mixture, mix well and form into patties. Saute in a large skillet over medium heat for 10-15 minutes, or to desired doneness.

Notes: Feel free to substitute ground turkey or omit the cheese!
