In need of a simple supper? I know these days I am! I have never been one for menu planning, mainly because I am indecisive and I am one of those that makes what she wants when she wants it.
For some reason when Pregnant I crave meat loaf.... I had never had it until I met Robyn and now its something we have regularly! I used to use a recipe that was given by his mother but it just wasn't hitting the spot for me anymore, so I started to look for another one. I found one on allrecipes.com called simply "easy meatloaf" but it was a bit too plain and the sauce was way too sweet... so I switched it up and thought that I would share it here!
1lb ground beef
1/2 cup milk
1 to 2 cups of bread crumbs (I usually use 2 cups)
1/2 cup of cracker crumbs
Salt and pepper to taste
2 slices of bacon
1 clove of garlic
1/3 cup of ketchup or bbq sauce
2 tbsp mustard
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fry bacon and then saute the onion and garlic in the bacon fat allow to cool for 10 to 15 mins, mix the meat, egg, milk, and bread crumbs and add the onion, bacon and garlic to the meat. Place on a sheet pan (I line mine with foil for easy clean up) and make it a loaf shape. Mix topping and pour over the meat loaf bake for 1 hour.
I usually serve this with Ranch Mashed Potatoes... Basically boil your potatoes as usual and mash them up when cooked add 1 to 2 tbsp of both butter and Ranch salad dressing, makes them so smooth and very yummy!
Sorry there are no pictures in this post but this meat loaf doesn't last... as soon as it's out of the oven its gone I keep making it to freeze because it's so easy to just pull out, reheat and go, but we just keep gobbling it up time after time! (luckily its just as easy to make from scratch)
I hope you like it! I know I sure do, and I think Robyn is in love!Do you have a simple supper go to recipe? Wanna Share? Leave it in the comments and I might just give it a try!
