This recipe came from an old Food and Family Magazine by Kraft Recipes. I was looking for a recipe that would be easy and fast but with a kick. This one doesn’t disappoint! You can substitute veal or turkey for the ground beef to make it healthier. This time of year that is a big PLUS in my home. I use a little trick to blending that ground beef without a mess. Using plastic gloves (or baggies) over my hands I don’t need to touch the meat as I blend and form it. That is a big win win for me! I also use a loaf pan that has a raised strainer to allow any juices to sit in the pan below the meat. If you’re one of those people that loves a good meatloaf, this recipe is for you! And if you’re one of those people that finds their self with a dry loaf that’s hard as a rock, this one will surely make your kids turn and ask you for more. I hope you enjoy!
