Watching the oven...making meat loaf for fifty for our Living Water monthly dinner at Blessed Hope Church. He should be called Pete Loaf.
I've been cooking instead of working, just this one guy this week. He is cuter than his picture. He has watched me cook and we are sharing my recipe. It's better than Ann Lander's recipe, which Mammy sometimes used. This is my mother's recipe.
Recipe for My Meat Loaf
In a large bowl put four slices of white bread, cover these with milk, enough to absorb and make soft. Add salt, pepper, a medium to large chopped onion, a dash or so of catsup and three large eggs.
I use a half pound of sausage (like house brand or Jimmy Dean) and near three pounds of ground chuck. Mix this all together and make a long loaf. Bake it at 400 until it browns well. Usually takes about 40 minutes.
After it is done, I make a glaze of tomato catsup and brown sugar enough to cover the loaf and put it back in the oven for just a few minutes. I know this is not an exact measurement recipe, but it works, just have faith.
Everyone really liked it, even those who don't like meat loaf.
If you are in the Detroit area, pick up a Free Press this morning. It's worth the buck, to read Mitch Albom's article about Haiti. Happy Thursday everyone.
