Stick the thermometer into the center, cook until center is 145-155, 162 if you're paranoid about ground beef.

Best feature I ever saw on a stove is on the Bosch we have (others probably have this too) - plug the probe in to the oven, insert it into the thickest portion of the food, set the "done" temp, and let the oven do the work for you - turns off automatically when the temp is reached. Love that.
Still in there. This kid is taking a hell of a dump. Either that, or he's busy wiping with his socks and hanging them inside the stall like Xmas stockings. - Evilgrin72

I don't have a meat thermometer. I should invest in one considering I call my mom every time I have to cook anything significant.

That was just because I am curious. :D Now, Are you using a loaf pan? Your cook time is 50 minutes to an hour. Depending on what kind of pan. Look on the back of the onion soup mix box... I am guessing it tells you.

Good call, baby!

It says 1 hour for a 2 lb loaf, so I'll give it an extra 15 minutes or so.

Right now brush some BBQ sauce on top for the last 10 minutes or so. Gives it a nice crust.

Homer>if you feel like making this better

Get a couple onions. Carmelize the crap out of them until they're almost liquid. Put 'em in the meatloaf with a cup or so of buttermilk.

Get a GD meat thermometer while you're at the store. It has a little thing on there that says "beef" "chicken" and so forth so you don't even have to know anything. Take it out when the little thingy gets to "beef"

I've cooked more meatloafs (loaves?) than some of you have had hot meals and never used a meat thermometer. When it looks done take it out...cut into the middle. If it's not done put it in for another 5 minutes. It's not beef freaking Wellington.
