1-1/2 pounds ground beef
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup ketchup
3/4 cup herb-seasoned stuffing mix
1/2 ounce ranch seasoning for dips
1 6-ounce package fried onions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine meat, eggs, ketchup, stuffing mix, ranch seasoning and fried onions. Shape into a loaf and fit into a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan.
Bake, covered loosely with foil, for 50 to 60 minutes, or until meat is thoroughly cooked. If desired, brush with ketchup the last 10 minutes of cooking and finish baking uncovered.
