Meatloaf with Fried Onions and Ranch Dressing

Got this recipe from  We absolutely LOVE this recipe.  So moist and flavorful.  No picture since you know what meatloaf looks like :)

1 1/2 lbs ground beef (or any combo of meat you like)
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup ketchup
3/4 cup seasoned dry stuffing crumbs (like Stove Top)
1/2 of a 1 oz package of Ranch Dressing Mix
1 6oz can French's Fried Onions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients (it will seem like there are way too many onions, but I promise, add the whole can!).  Shape into a loaf and fit into a greased 9x5 inch pan.
Bake, covered loosely with foil, for 50-60 minutes or until a meat thermometer measures 145-150 degrees.

Serve with ketchup on top if you like.

Important note:  Don't be tempted to skimp and only use 1 lb of meat, definitely use 1 1/2 lbs of meat.  I usually just brown up the other 1/2 lb and freeze it for later.  Use the stuffing crumbs, don't substitute bread crumbs, the stuffing crumbs help make it really moist.
