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
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
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?
