Remember “Mrs. Loaf”? Her Husband Was Asked To Write This Post :)


Hello everybody – Mrs. Loaf here (alias Loving Loaf).   Today Dave and I stirred up another meatloaf, but we created our own recipe as we went.  I’ll let Dave tell you about it:

I insisted on a homemade recipe to expand the horizons of Mrs. Loaf.  🙂    We both feel we need less MSG and less preservatives that so many soup mixes have.  We thus endeavored to keep the basic recipe of fresh meat, ketchup, oatmeal/breadcrumbs and two eggs, but no commercial mixes or flavorings.  We proceeded thusly:

2 lbs. fresh ground beef

1/3 cup ketchup (low sodium, no corn syrup type)

2 eggs

1 Tablespoon Lawry seasoning salt – with no MSG added

2 teaspoons Lawry seasoned pepper

1 teaspoon of “natural” seasoning mix we got at the State Fair

1/2 teaspoon of “natural” seasoning mix for beef we got at the State Fair

2 cloves garlic (Debb used cut up garlic that you can find in the grocery store sold in small glass jars; equivalent is 1/2 teaspoon for 1 clove garlic)

Enough uncooked, old fashioned oatmeal to cover the top of the mixture

350 degrees for 45

It’s nice to be asked to write this today.  🙂  It’s nice to share my Mrs. Loaf with you, because I know she loves you all and WordPress.  (Some days it seems I only have half a loaf, but it’s worth it!  haha)

From the hearth of our Safe Haven (what Debb named this house years ago), we baked our loving loaf and wish you well!
