Goode & Gooseberry Project: Marvelous Meatloaf

Nov. 10: (Again, missed yesterday): I am thankful for my family. A dear friend and cousin just lost her father--my uncle.

Nov. 11: I am thankful for all the Veterans and extremely proud of my nephew who was recently sworn into the United States Air Force.

This little gem of a meatloaf--Marvelous Meatloaf to be exact-- is the next recipe in our Goode & Gooseberry Patch Project.

So, I started by putting 3/4 cup bread crumbs in a large mixing bowl.

Add 3/4 Cup Milk

1 T Salt and 1 T Pepper

1 Onion Chopped

Mix 'er up and add in your beef.

1 1/2 lbs to be exact

Then mix 'er up. (I used my Mix N' Chop and then used my Switchit Spatula (by Chef'n) to scrape it clean--lovin' me some kitchen gadgets...)

Then I put it in my meatloaf pan and gots down to business making the sauce.

I mixed 1/2 Cup Ketchup, 2T Brown Sugar and 2T Mustard up...

And mix 'er up

And put 'er on top. Then bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour.

Now cut 'er up and serve.

Puddie really loved this version of meatloaf. It is a little tangier and a different flavor than My Awesome Meatloaf and definitely going on the list for future meals.

7 GOODe Thoughts:

What a yummy, stick-to-your-ribs, comforting meal :)
My sweetie pie loves meatloaf and I try to make it for him every so often. I thinks the worcestershire sauce is the 'secret' ingredient :)
Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe!!
So sorry that I have been MIA for a bit....lots and lots of irons in the fire at this time. I'll try to do better :)

I struggled for years to find the perfect meatloaf. I finally found a Paula Deen one that is similar to this only has canned tomatoes in it too. I use Ro-Tel because I'm from Texas and I like that kick. The topping is the same and I agree, it makes it way more flavorful.

I confess that I hated meatloaf until I started cooking it for myself. There must be something to my mom's that I just don't like.

First, I am sorry for your loss! Hugs!

Second, I am not a huge fan of meatloaf, but I may just have to try this. It looks sooooo goodE! ;-)

I love meatloaf! good idea for dinner tonight - especially with one of those great buttercup squashes from my garden. :-)

Great minds think alike, Cris...look for another yummy meatloaf this Sunday on our blog!

PLUS, did you know that we're only 700-something Facebook fans from getting the next chapter of the downloadable cookbook? It's ALL meatloaf (25 ways!) so you know it's gonna be good. :)
