|"I think my husband's very favorite meal is meatloaf. He would eat it every day if he could. I think it's a 'man-thing', because my step-dad loved meatloaf too. I have made it in so many different ways, but I think (and so does my hubby) this combination is my favorite!" |
1 medium onion, finely diced
1 clove of garlic, finely minced
1 Tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
In a small skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté onions until tender. Add garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside (you will add the onion and garlic mixture to the meat mixture in the next step).
2 pounds hamburger
2 slices of white bread, torn into small pieces
6 ounces (1/2 of a jar) chili sauce*
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Mix hamburger, bread pieces, eggs, chili sauce, reserved onion and garlic mixture, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper together (I have found that the easiest way to combine the ingredients is with my hands). Form into a loaf and place into a loaf pan. Top with sauce (recipe follows) and bake.
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Combine ketchup, barbecue sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Spoon on top of meatloaf.
Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until cooked completely.
*Chili sauce can be found on the condiment aisle of the grocery store by the cocktail sauce. If you are unable to find the chili sauce, you may substitute ketchup.
