Maretta’s Favorite Recipe - Meatloaf
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 1 lb ground sausage
- 2 cans diced tomatoes (Italian style)
- 3/4-1 cup can milk (I use it to rinse out the tomatoes)
- 3 eggs
- 2 sleeves saltines
- 1 and 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 3 tsp salt
- 1 and 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 2 Tbsp onion flakes (use 2 sm onions if baking immed.)
- 1/4 cup mustard
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- 1/3-1/2 cup BBQ sauce
Topping: squirt ketchup, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce on top. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Mix while spreading over top of meat loaf.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Maretta’s Transport Tips
Use disposable containers, bags, etc., that the recipient does NOT have to return. Receiving meals is wonderful, but then to put the extra headache on the person to return all the dishes? Absolutely not (if at all possible)!
If taking something that might spill, use a container/dish larger than the recipe calls for. If that isn't convenient, put it in a box lined with a towel, or if you have a plastic tub of some sort, that would work too.
Maretta’s Meal Disaster
This isn't a disaster, but once I was sick and another time I was just too busy and didn't have an evening free to cook, so I had pizza delivered. A bit more expensive perhaps, but so easy.
