We're getting our use out of this giant egg! Today Pierce had my grandmother's meatloaf recipe. I make it several times of year, but I also healthy it up a tad by using ground turkey instead of meat, and this time I also used Panko crumbs instead of bread crumbs. It was very good. He also had some bowtie pasta salad I had made, and a bear muffin cup of caramel mousse (by far, the most popular event of this meal).
1 1/2 lb. ground beef (or turkey)
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 can Hunt's tomato sauce
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 can Hunt's tomato sauce (again!)
1 cup water
2 tbsp. prepared mustard
2 tbsp. vinegar
2 tbsp. brown sugar
Lightly mix first 7 ingredients. Form into loaf and place in a shallow pan. Place in moderate oven at 350*. Combine the remaining ingredients. Pour over meat loaf in oven, bake for 1 1/4 hours, basting occasionally. Serves 4-6.
This recipe freezes very well too - I made 4 batches when I was about 35 weeks pregnant with the twins, froze it, and then it made for easy dinners right after they were born.
