Today, we post our 150th blog. We're not sure why, but both of us LOVE meatloaf. It's our comfort food, so it seemed fitting that it had the distinct position of 150th post. Now, you may wonder why we've never blogged about this before. Well, the truth is, we both love our mothers' meatloafs so much, we never tried making it on our own. We had to remedy this and make meatloaf a go-to meal in our house.
As with a lot of our dishes, we didn't really measure, just threw in ingredients until the consistency looked correct.
Here's what you need:
1 1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 lb mild pork sausage
10-15 Saltine crackers (or oatmeal if you prefer)
1 15 oz jar of Meatloaf sauce (You can use tomato sauce, but you'll need more crackers)
1 large egg
1 medium onion
Ketchup to top
Here's what you do:
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.
Dice up your onion.
Throw your crackers in a plastic bag and roll with a rolling pin until they're crumbs.
Now, throw all of the ingredients except the ketchup into a large bowl.
Mix until it's combined, but don't over mix. Spray a loaf pan or casserole dish with cooking spray. If you use a casserole dish, you'll need to form the loaf yourself. We used a loaf pan, so it did the work for us.
Finally, top with the ketchup. Next time, we're going to add even more ketchup to the top.
Place in the oven for 30-45 minutes, or until the internal temperature of your meatloaf is 165 degrees.
Slice and serve immediately.
