Ever wonder what it takes to cook meatloaf for 100 people?

First... the ingredients, which includes 30 pounds of hamburger...
30 pounds hamburger
30 eggs
10 cups bread crumbs
10 packages onion soup mix
worchestershire sauce
house seasoning
Mix everything together... To make it easier, I did it in 3 batches.

3 pans... 2 loaves each

About done!


  1. Our small church feeds the elderly and hungry within our community each Wed night. We deliver 75 meals and prepare for 100 since there are about 25 of us each mid-week service. I'm always looking for good, easy, and inexpensive meals to prepare. We are able to get a good price on ground beef this week, so I considered making meatloaf and was tickled to come across this post on a web search. Can you tell me approximately how long you cooked the loaves? Any tips you have would be great. Thanks so much!

  2. Woo Hoo ~ I am trying this out at one of our ministry's Soup Kitchen in Barberton, Ohio next week. We serve approximately 100 hot dinners and I am hoping to incorporate several bags of frozen spinach into the loaves ~ amping up the nutrition while using up "leftovers" :) Thanks for an easy-peasy recipe!

  3. Hi, Also a question about feeding at a soup kitchen. Is that recipe for 100 or 175? We feed about 250 people every Wednesday here in Santa Ana Ca. I wanted to serve meatloaf too.
    p.s. how long do you bake and at what temp?

    1. My recipe feeds about 100 people. I also have a recipe for 50 people that you can search for on my search engine above. I cook them at 350 degrees for a couple of hours depending on the amount of pans in the oven. I rotate them half way through the cooking time and drain them if necessary.
