Description

I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Brown Sugar Meatloaf (Molly Cash)

The kids ALL love this meatloaf, as do Jon and I. It really does taste phenomenal! 65 minutes. 
$5.92 w/tax


½ c packed brown sugar
½ c ketchup
1½ lb lean ground beef
¾ c milk
2 eggs
1½ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground black pepper
1 small onion, finely chopped or 2 tsp onion powder
¼ tsp ground ginger
¾ c finely crushed saltine cracker crumbs (~15)
½ c grated zucchini or other veggies (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease a 5x9 inch loaf pan. Press the brown sugar in the bottom of the prepared loaf pan and spread the ketchup over the sugar. In a mixing bowl, mix thoroughly all remaining ingredients and shape into a loaf. Place on top of the ketchup. Bake in preheated oven for 65 minutes or until juices are clear and internal temperature reaches at least 160° (half recipe: 40 min for 2 mini loaf pans). *Use leftovers to make Dirty Rice.



Try forming meatloaf into a heart for Valentine's Day or sometime during February. You can shape it one of two ways:

1 -- Press the brown sugar in the bottom of the prepared loaf pan in the rough shape of a heart and spread the ketchup over it. In a mixing bowl, mix thoroughly all remaining ingredients and shape into a heart on top of the ketchup.

2 -- Cut into a heart when finished baking.



This meatloaf included zucchini and tasted fantastic (even though the lighting is terrible).
