{secret indulgence} - meatloaf sandwich




ok - it is one of many! My main list of secret indulgences might go something like this: a bath during the day, popcorn with real butter, going to a movie alone, sitting outside with a glass of wine, reading in bed until wee hours, fresh flowers. But I have an entire list of secret indulgences that have to do with food. This is one. First, I am going to start you with the recipe for the meatloaf - a classic, a basic a go to recipe for sure. Which is good ... don't get me wrong - I love a good loaf. But I really love a meatloaf sandwich the day after. So don't miss the addendum at the end of the post. Meatloaf sandwich - I can't believe I am telling you this - what next?

Meatloaf by ann west

2 lbs ground beef or buffalo
1/2 cup catsup
2 eggs
1/2 cup water
2 good tbls worchestire sauce
garlic powder (or fresh minced)
dash of hot sauce (or 2 or 3)
bread crumbs (or Panko or omit all-together)
salt and pepper
steak seasoning

Preheat over to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl place your meat and all spices. Mix eggs in a bowl to the side. I think meatloaf should be handled as little as possible. So I put all the ingredients in a bowl and fold them in gently. Like dough if you handle it too much it turns out tough or like mush. We all remember our schools version of loaf - not so good. Once you have them mixed in shape into a loaf and place in a shallow roasting pan. I like to sprinkle the steak seasoning on top - my kids like catsup with hot sauce on top too. Bake in the oven for 45 min or until done.

**Now for the sandwich.
The basics: soft bread, catsup, mayonnaise. I also like to add a slice of red onion or a pickle. Yum. Ok this maybe a recipe for just me but I love it!

what is your secret indulgence?
enjoy!

i am So going to try this recipe! I adore meatloaf sandwiches. And it's funny how we both like the same toppings. This makes me smile.
You know i haven't been able to find a really great, steak seasoning. The one in the grocery store here, is just a bit salty.
This is really bad of me to say but~ i do love to indulge in a nice plate of fried potatoes with onions and green peppers. Bliss~

SO...I've just been over to Amy and read her post a couple of days ago about Risotto...that's mine.I could eat it at any time of day...and don't mind standing over the stove stirring for 20 minutes either.
Love the sound of the sandwich the next day...I better make enough!

hello fellas. I'm actually into shoes and I have been searching allowing for regarding that particular brand. The prices due to the fact that the boots are about 350 dollars everwhere. But for all I set this site selling them for half price. I really love those [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will probably order them. what is your opinion?
