I invented my own recipe for meatloaf: hamburger, bread, 1 egg, dried onion bits, Worcestershire sauce, a bit of ketchup. Put into the oven at 350 degrees F.

Please advise the ideal oven temperature, and length of cooking time. Also, should I cover it with foil for part of the time?

it will be cooked when it reaches the internal temperature corresponding to the "done" temperature of whatever meat you are using. From the US food Safety Chart:

Category................................................Food.........................Temperature (°F)

Ground Meat & Meat Mixtures......Beef, Pork, Veal, Lamb.............160

Ground Meat & Meat Mixtures......Turkey, Chicken.......................165

I'd guess that it will take about 45min-75min depending on what size and shape of pan you are using. I personally don't cover my meatloaf with foil but I have a ketchup mixture I spread on the top so while that caramelizes it doesn't really "brown". If you have a "dry" top you may want to consider covering it, but I do find that covering with foil can increase the cooking time somewhat..

Depending on depth and placement within the oven, 45-60 minutes most likely.

You'll have to test it, but once you know then you'll know.

350 degrees for oven for around 40-45 minutes, I top mine with tomato sauce lightly and I cover mine with foil to keep it moist and remove foil the last 15 minutes
