Took a little break over the holiday weekend from blogging. Jon got a new grill, so he’s grilled a lot of meals lately. Finally got back into the kitchen. This week, I’ve got meatloaf up.
1 lb ground beef
6 oz ground sausage or pork
15 Ritz crackers crushed into crumbs
¼ cup onion chopped
¼ cup ketchup
2 eggs beaten
1 tsp Worcestershire
1 tbsp spicy garlic wing sauce
Pinch ground black pepper
¼ cup roasted garlic breadcrumbs
Extra ketchup for topping
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Prep a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil and placing a baking rack on top. Spray the rack with cooking spray.
Chop the onion.
Crush the crackers.
Place all ingredients into a mixing bowl (except the extra ketchup). Mix with your clean hands until combined well.
Divide the meat mixture in half, and form two loaves. Place each loaf on the prepared baking sheet.
Top with the extra ketchup…however much your little heart desires!
Bake for 1 hour or until internal temperature of each loaf reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove from oven and allow to rest for about 10-15 minutes. This will help keep your meatloaf from falling apart when cutting into slices.
Serve the meatloaf! The second meatloaf is great to wrap up and put in the fridge to make leftover sandwiches (if you aren’t planning to eat both loaves in one sitting).
