Here is a very economical, traditional meat loaf recipe. I personally LOVE meat loaf. I really LOVE sandwiches made with leftover meat loaf. Is that goofy? Don’t knock it ’til you try it! (And, it is EASY to make).
Mimi’s Meat Loaf with Tomato Sauce
2 lbs. ground chuck
½ large onion, chopped
2 celery ribs, chopped
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 cup oatmeal, uncooked
salt, pepper, celery salt, garlic salt and season salt to taste
Mix all ingredients well and form into a loaf. Bake in a large baking dish at 350 degrees for about one hour. Pour sauce over loaf and continue to bake for about 10 minutes.
½ cup brown sugar
¾ cup ketchup
2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
¾ tsp. ground nutmeg
2 tsp. dry mustard
Place all ingredients in a small saucepan and mix well. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Remove from heat and pour over meat loaf.
