Another great recipe from Deborah Vogts at Country at Heart - it looked too much like a "Homeplace" recipe to pass it up - Thanks Deborah! Be sure to see her new Book out shortly, Seeds of Summer, as well as Snow Melts in Spring... a favorite of mine!
Here's a good old-fashioned recipe for Sunday Meatloaf.
3/4 cups milk
1 1/2 cups crushed saltine crackers
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup catsup
1 tablespoon mustard
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, combine eggs and milk. Stir into egg mixture crackers, onion, parsley, salt and pepper. Add ground beef, catsup, mustard, brown sugar and liquid smoke. Mix well. Spoon mixture into greased loaf pan. Bake covered for 45 minutes. Pour 1/2 cup catsup over meatloaf and bake uncovered for another 10 minutes. Serve warm. Good with scalloped potatoes and green beans. YES, it is great that way!
