Ma – the Meatloaf!

Any Wedding Crasher friends out there?! **crickets** My dear friend Kelly passed along her mom’s meatloaf recipe and it was delicious!

I made a lot of meals over the weekend including Ms. Ann’s Meatloaf. I didn’t follow the recipe in its entirety because I didn’t have a green pepper and I totally forgot the cheese. Instead of baking as a loaf I divided the meatloaf into muffin pans then froze the little minis for later consumption.

*Original Recipe
1 lb. ground beef
1 egg
¼ cup oatmeal (instant is fine)
¼ cup onions
¼ cup green pepper
1/3 cup cheese
a squirt or 2 of BBQ sauce
¼ (or more ☺) cup brown sugar

Mush ingredients together very well. “When you think you’ve mushed enough, mush some more ☺”

Pat into baking dish until it’s about 1 ½ in. thick, and not touching the sides of the dish.

Pour1/4 in. of water onto the sides of the meat.

Drizzle ketchup all over the top of the meat so that you can't see the top.

Cook at 350 for 1 hour. “It will always be done after an hour.”

Thanks Kelly! If anyone is interested in the freezer method, just let me know.

Great idea. I made this last night with ground turkey. Yummy! The barbecue sauce was a good flavoring.
