  • 1 cup crushed saltine crackers 20 to 22 crackers
  • 3 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 4 tablespoons taco sauce
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 medium onion chopped fine
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 lbs ground meat—beef beef & pork, or meatloaf mix (beef, pork, & veal)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until fully incorporated.
  • Pack the meat into a loaf pan that has been sprayed with cooking oil, or form into a loaf and place it into an oiled, 9 by 13 baking dish.
  • Place into the oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until the internal temperature is 160 degrees.
  • If desired, glaze the meatloaf with 1 or 2 tbsp of ketchup about 10 minutes before the loaf is done.
  • Remove from the oven and let rest for 15 minutes before cutting to serve.
  • To make a gravy, reserve any juices from the meatloaf. Add 3 tbsp butter to a skillet on medium, then add 3 tbsp all-purpose flour and whisk together for 1 minute. Slowly add 1 1/2 cups cold beef broth and whisk to prevent lumping. Add any meatloaf juices and stir in. Cook for several minutes to thicken if necessary.
