An easy sauce made from just two ingredients, mushroom soup and red wine, transforms home-style meatloaf into company fare.


  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cups Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 can (10 3/4 oz.) condensed golden mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup red wine


1. In large mixing bowl, beat egg slightly. Stir in remaining ingredients except ground beef. Let stand about 5 minutes or until KELLOGG'S® RICE KRISPIES® cereal softens. Beat well. Add ground beef. Mix until combined. Shape into loaf. Place in shallow baking pan coated with cooking spray or foil lined.

2. Bake at 350° about 1 hour or until well browned and center is cooked (160 degrees F). Serve with Golden Mushroom Sauce.
