How do I make meatloaf? Well, I just throw in a little of this and that and pop it into the oven. O.k., O.k. you are twisting my arm to share, so here you are:
For my family of seven I use 3 lbs of ground beef (we bought 1/2 of a cow a few months ago).
Recipe: for large family - will feed seven healthy eaters with leftovers
- ground beef - 3lbs
- oatmeal - 2 cups
- onion soup mix package - 1
- eggs - 2 beaten
- tomato sauce 1/2 can
mix all together well and place in a large loaf pan - I have a special meatloaf pan that I love, love, love!
Preheat your oven to 350
mix the glaze for the top:
- brown sugar 3/4 cup
- ketchup 1 1/4 cup
pour and spread the glaze over the ground beef mixture
place the loaf pan in a preheated oven for an hour and 20 minutes for the family size - if you do not have a meatloaf pan that keeps the drippings, put a drip pan under the loaf pan to prevent spill overs.
Now Onto My version of scalloped potatoes: will feed seven healthy eaters.
- 5 lbs of potatoes, cleaned and sliced
- cheeze whiz - 2 jars
- cream cheese - one package
- butter - 1 stick
layer sliced potatoes in a buttered casserole or 9x13 pan
melt your butter, cheese whiz and cream cheese in a sauce pan and mix until melted and blended
pour over potatoes and place in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender
I hope your family enjoys this meal as much as mine do!
