Tales from the Sun

okay, well really this is just a spot for me to ramble on about random topics

Nothing says homecooking like Mom's meatloaf. Not having a clue (and I really mean no clue) about what goes in to making a meatloaf, I called my mother this morning for her secret recipe. Her secret recipe turned out to be my Aunt Verne's secret recipe.

Sorry, I do digress... so I made meatloaf for the first time. Amanda had never had meatloaf, frankly, I don't think she even wanted to try it! But she did, and it was fabulous!!

Let's just say, the secret's in the sauce! Here's the general recipe (you're instructed to improvise as you go):

My Great Aunt Verne's Meatloaf:
a pound or so of Ground Beef
small onion chopped finely
4 slices of fresh soft white bread (who knew)
1 egg
1/2 cup of Heinz Ketchup (don't you dare use anything else - oh and on a side note, we bought the collector's edition bottle with a quote from Mia Hamm)
several "dabs" of Worcestershire sauce

Mix all of the ingredients above, put in a loaf pan (or glass dish) and then make the glaze

Topping Glaze sauce
1/2 cup of Heinz Ketchup
1/4 cup of French's Yellow Mustard
1/2 cup or so of brown sugar

Mix these ingredients into a nice glaze, add more sugar as needed.

Pour glaze over the meat and bake at 350 for an hour or so. Potatoes of any kind should accompanying this dish.


it sounds so easy! I love meatloaf, I'm going to have to try this, it sounds easy enough for even me to cook. thanks for the recipe!
