Easy, Pleasing Meatloaf


We like meatloaf of all varieties because it is easy to put together, budget-friendly and pretty darn tasty.  Personally, I am a big fan of the leftover meatloaf sandwich.  When I saw this 5-ingredient recipe in a women’s magazine, I thought to myself that it was too easy and too simple to possibly taste good.  Well, I am very OK with admitting that I was wrong.  The recipe has been passed along to several friends and family members who all agree that it is remarkably good and easy and simple.  Maximize the oven and serve this main course with baked sweet potatoes.  At Casa Mayone, steamed green beans round out the menu.

Easy, Pleasing Meatloaf adapted from Kraft Foods
Serves 8

1 pkg.  (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken
1 cup milk
2  eggs, beaten
1/2 cup favorite bottled Barbecue Sauce, divided
(for the fussiest eaters, substitute ketchup)
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 lb. lean ground pork
HEAT oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, mix together the stuffing, milk, eggs and 1/4 cup of the BBQ sauce.  Mix the meat into the seasonings.  It does not have to be a smooth mixture.  Overmixed meatloaf can sometimes be tough.


SHAPE into oval loaf in 13×9-inch baking dish; brush outside of loaf with remaining sauce.

BAKE 1 hour or until cooked through (160ºF).  Let meatloaf rest for about 10 minutes before slicing.

Leftover Meatloaf Sandwich

2 slices white sandwich bread, toasted
2 tsp. ketchup
2 tsp. mayonnaise
1/2 inch slice leftover meatloaf, warm or cold
(to warm meatloaf, heat slice in the microwave for about 30 seconds)
1 – 2 slices cheddar cheese
thin slices purple onion or Vidalia onion

Spread the ketchup and mayo onto the inside of the bread.  Top with meatloaf, cheese and onions.  Slice in half.  Serve with a pickle and some potato chips.

Flavorista Note:  These sandwiches are not just for lunch.  They would work nicely as a great, no-cook, easy dinner.
