Meatloaf

February 17th, 2009

meatloafNo, no, not Meatloaf…meatloaf.  (Although Bat Out Of Hell is an awesome road trip album.)  I don’t have a photo of my meatloaf because let’s face it – it isn’t a pretty food.  It is a yummy comfort food and we love it no matter how it looks.  Everyone has their own meatloaf recipe.  I have 3 but this one is the go to recipe because it is quick and easy.  It is a melding of the other 2.

Meatloaf

2 lbs ground lean beef (sometimes I like a pound of beef and a pound of ground pork)

1 box/bag herb seasoned croutons (5 or 6 ounces)

3 cloves of garlic, minced

1 can condensed tomato soup (I use about 3/4 of the can but you can use it all if you like your meatloaf really moist)

1 – 2 tsp ground chipolte pepper

Salt and pepper

Put the croutons into food processor and pulse until they are crumbs.  Pour into a metal or glass bowl with rest of ingredients.  Squish all of this together in a bowl.  Form into a loaf and put into a baking dish – 8×8 or 9×13 – whatever you have.

Topping

1/4 cup ketchup

1 Tablespoon honey

1 Tablespoon worchershire sauce

Couple of shakes of cumin

Couple of shakes of Cayenne Pepper sauce or ground cayenne pepper

Stir all of this together and pour over meatloaf.  Bake at 350 for an hour(ish).

Healthy?  Nope.  Just simple and oh so yummy when you need some comfort food.
