So, it has come to my attention that someone (we won't mention any names) doesn't know how to make meatloaf.
That is just terrible. :)
So, I thought I would share my meatloaf recipe, and our special sauce. :)
Grab two pounds of hamburger (thawed) - 2lbs will feed 6-8 people, so just gauge it on the size of your family.
Season with a little bit of salt, pepper, basil (basically anything that you use to season your hamburgers)
Throw in one sleeve of saltine crackers (or oats, whatever you have in the house)
3 to 4 eggs
Mix this all together in a big bowl. You will get messy. But don't worry. :)
Once you have combined all the ingredients split into two equal sections, and place into two greased bread pans.
Pop into the oven at 375 degrees, for roughly one hour.
While that is cooking up, we can mix up the sauce.
You will need brown sugar, ketchup and mustard.
Combine all the ingredients together until you get the taste you are looking for. I would say my normal ratio would be 2 cups ketchup, 1/2 cup of mustard, 1 cup of brown sugar.
Yeah, it is not healthy. But. A little goes a long way.
And I have to say, I have never measured the sauce (or the meatloaf for that matter)....so it might be off. I just like the sauce to taste most like the brown sugar than the mustard and ketchup.
After the one hour of cook time, top the meatloaf with the sauce. Bake for another 15-20 minutes, and it is ready to serve.
This is a GREAT recipe to hid veggies in. I often slip peppers or onions into the mixture. So feel free to go crazy. :)
Well, that is what we are having for dinner tonight. What about you?
