meat & potaotes...




I know, I know...to some a "loaf of meat" is not all that appealing...but in the world of comfort foods this is right at the top of the list...and let me tell you, this meal can deliver in the comfort department. There are many meatloaf recipes out there...here is one of my favorites.

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1/2 -1 can water
minced onion (to taste)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 pkg Mrs. Cubbison's seasoned dressing
1 Tbsp dijon mustard
2 eggs; slightly beaten

Combine all ingredients together with hands. Shape into a loaf on lightly greased baking sheet or place into greased muffin tins. Top with ketchup. Bake at 375 degrees for 40-45 min (or until thermometer reads 160)

Serve this bad boy up with some mashed potatoes & roasted carrots (olive oil, salt & pepper...400 degrees for 15-20 min) & call yourself comforted!!

Oh my gosh I am drooooooling all over my keyboard for the mashed potatoes and carrots. I could eat a giant vat of those right now!

That slice of meatloaf is too thin. You need a thick slice to make it more comforting.
