Our family really enjoys Meatloaf, especially since we started having our own grass fed beef waiting patiently to be used in our freezer. My recipe is my Mother's own famous recipe with lots of good spices, sauces and a bit of oatmeal, and bran in it. It is delicious, but takes quite a bit of time to prepare.
Today, on Pinterest of course, I came across this easy sounding Meatloaf recipe that I decided to try. You can find it and many other delicious recipes on my Yummy Recipes board.
The recipe calls for:
1 pound of ground meat (beef or turkey)
1 box of Stovetop Stuffing
1 cup water
Mix it all together and bake in a bread loaf pan at 350 for 45 minutes.
That amount might feed a smaller family, but we like having Meatloaf sandwiches from the leftovers so I doubled the recipe using:
2 pounds of grass fed, hormone and antibiotic free, Highland Beef
2 free range, home grown chicken egg
(probably from a Barred Rock hen, the one that likes to eat all of my Kale)
2 boxes of incredibly processed Stove Top Chicken made with Whole Wheat
2 cups of raw milk
I used the whole wheat to make myself feel better about using processed boxes of stuffing with so much other excellent home grown and raised ingredients.
When it's just about done baking, I'll smother it with our homemade Amish Tomato Ketchup from our homegrown tomatoes......YUM!!
To finish the table, we'll have some canned peaches, spiced applesauce and hopefully a small salad from the lettuce still growing in the greenhouse!
I promise, if the recipe isn't any good, I'll be sure to add on to this post to let you know, but since we love stuffing, I'm pretty sure we will enjoy it.
~ Much later.....this recipe is delicious. Our daughter said it was the best Meatloaf she had ever tasted! I will tell you that you can clearly taste the stuffing in this meatloaf, so if you do not care for stuffing, I wouldn't advise making it. If you love stuffing the way we do, you have GOT to try this!!
