Add It To The Thumbs Up Menu List!
I made meatloaf for dinner and it was a hit!! I loosely followed the Classic Meatloaf recipe in The Joy of Cooking. I used 2 lb of ground beef, 1 box of stove top (classic sage), 1/2 a chopped onion, 2/3 c ketchup, 3 eggs. The recipe calls for a variety of spices and using oats. I used the Stove Top in place of all that. I mixed all ingredients by hand (which was really gross) and smooshed the mixture into a loaf pan. Baked at 350 for an hour and then took it out and added a "drizzle" of ketchup on top and then cooked it another 15 minutes (until the loaf reached an internal temp of 160). I think I actually overcooked it a smidge because it fell apart a bit when I served it. But it was darn tasty. I had mine with A1. Jeff and kids had ketchup. Brian was here to hang out and enjoyed it as well with no added sauce. Zach ate a few bites and liked it fine. Teagan ate every bite. I enjoyed all of mine. Jeff declared it "good." Brian had 2 pieces. Jeff went back and had more after the kids were in bed. So I'd say we have a hit on our hands! Simple, classic and home cooked!
