Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Meatloaf

This is the corporate recipe for Meatloaf. It makes three loaves, which is great if you would like to freeze a couple of them. Otherwise, it's fairly simply to pare the recipe down to make one loaf.

  • 30 ounces onion, chopped 1/4-inch square
  • 1 pound diced green bell peppers
  • 10 eggs
  • 5 tablespoons salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons pepper
  • 1 1/2 quarts diced canned tomatoes
  • 2 1/4 cups grated biscuit crumbs


  1. Place all in large bowl, mix completely with gloved hand.
  2. Place in 3 loaf pans. Press down with spoon.
  3. Bake at 300 degrees F in convection oven* for 60 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and invert each loaf over 8-inch wire rack to drain grease and juice.
  5. Spread 1/2 cup of ketchup over each loaf.
  6. Cut into portions 5 to 6 ounces each and keep warm.
* Or bake in a regular oven at 3r0 degrees F for 60 minutes.

Makes 42 five ounce servings.
