The "i Don’t Like Meatloaf" Meatloaf Recipe

June 10th, 2014 by alice  Tags: , , , | Print This Post Print This Post

INGREDIENTS

  1. 2lbsground beef
  2. 1lbpork sausage
  3. 1cupbreadcrumbs
  4. 3teaspoonscream of mushroom soup
  5. 1/2cupketchup
  6. 2eggs
  7. 2teaspoonsworcestershire sauce

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl- mix together well (using hands, as gross as it may be).
  3. Mold mixture into a”loaf”, place into 8×11 baking dish (I try to make sure the meatloaf doesn’t touch the sides, it makes for easier cleanup).
  4. Spread more ketchup on the top of the meatloaf.
  5. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes to an hour.
  6. My favorite sides to go with this are mashed potatoes and green beans.
  7. You can be creative with this recipe- use spicy sausage if you like spicy; sage if you like that taste, etc You can also add chopped onions, green peppers, or salsa- I don’t, but only because my kids won’t eat it.
  8. (Bonus: if your kids are veggie haters like mine- they never even notice the mushrooms).

  2. 1/2cup rawwheat germor additionalalmond meal
  3. 1 1/3cupsoatmeal(uncooked)
  4. 1cupwhole wheat flour
  5. 2/3cupsugar-free maple syrup

  10. 1/4cupsugar-free strawberry jamor sugar-free raspberry fruit spread

DIRECTIONS

  1. Prepare almond meal: using raw almonds, place in blender and pulse until flour consistency (use less than the desired amount- they explode) taking care not to overprocess into almond butter!
  2. Place all ingredients (except for jam) into a mixing bowl and blend until dough forms.
  3. Do not overprocess or the almond butter pops up again.
  4. If this happens, do not be alarmed– just just a dinner knife to remove the mixture from the beaters!
  5. Roll dough into golf balls, place on parchment lined cookie sheet, flattening to about 3/4 inch thickness.
  6. They will not spread, so can be placed close together.
  7. Using a spoon, make a small indention in the center of each cookie and add a little jam!
  8. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.
  9. Overcooking will result in a dry cookie!
  10. OH NO!
  11. Let cool for about 10-15 minutes.
  12. The jam centers may (or may not) dry during cooking.
  13. Store completely cooled cookies in a single layer in a large zip-lock plastic bag.
