I haven’t posted a recipe in a while so I wanted to let you in on the Best Meatloaf Ever! Not a pretty post, but oh sooooo good!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Two eggs beaten
2 cups soft bread crumbs, two pounds ground beef
About 1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons cream style horseradish
1 teaspoon dry mustard, 1/4 cup milk or cream
1/4 cup catsup, pinch of sea salt
2 tablespoons sweet jalapeno relish (you could probably substitute with regular relish and cayenne pepper) Now for the ugly part ~ take off your rings and mix all ingredients together with your hands, moosh and smoosh and goosh until it is all nicely mixed.
Form into a loaf and bake for approximately 1 hour 25 minutes
About half the way through the baking ~ spread about a 1/4 cup catsup over the top of the meatloaf, continue baking
The best meatloaf ever! Now for the mashed potatoes!
Approximately 8 red potatoes, peeled (I like to leave some of the peel on for color, texture and vitamins)
Cut into approximate quarters and boil in water (with pinch of sea salt) until they are tender, you will be able to pierce through them easily with a fork
Drain, do not rinse. In a bowl, put 1/2 a stick of butter and 1/2 cup of sour cream and then pour the potatoes
over them to melt the butter
Mash the potatoes and add about 1/2 cup of half & half (you can also use milk)
Continue mashing and add salt and pepper to taste. I use sea salt and lots of pepper! Then grab the mixer and whip
until desired texture! Aren’t they pretty with scattered red skins throughout?! Now don’t forget, I am not much
of a measurer and don’t follow recipes much, so add a little of this or that in any amount that tastes good to you!
Yum! Now that’s what we call comfort food! Happy cooking!!! ~ Cheryl :)
