An Old Standard!

Meatloaf, an easy meal and the true definition of “comfort” food.  Growing up we had meatloaf on a rather regular basis (with fresh veggies, baked potato, and homemade bread on the side) — and mom’s was the best (especially the tomato piquant sauce used to top it all off)!  Here is a tasty variation of mom’s recipe (using stuffing mix instead of bread crumbs and onion soup mix instead of the salt, pepper, and other seasonings).  Yum!

Everyday Meatloaf

2 cups herbed stuffing mix
1 cup water
½ cup dry milk
1 package dry onion soup mix
2 eggs, beaten well
½ cup catsup
2 pounds ground beef

For the Sauce
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons prepared mustard
½ cup water
2 Tablespoons vinegar
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Combine the stuffing, water, milk, soup mix, eggs, and catsup and mix thoroughly.  Add the meat and mix until it is all well blended.  Press into a loaf pan (9x5x3 inches) or form into a loaf.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1½ hours.  When it has cooked half the time, spread the tomato piquant sauce over the top and continue baking.
