Can I have your secret family recipe?!?!?
Do you have a secret family recipe that you could share? I want to know what recipe in your family has satisfied generations! :)
My Mom's meatloaf was good & even though I've tried other recipes I have found none better. My 2 daughters once had a meatloaf taste testing contest & Mom's recipe was a clear winner. Here's Mom's recipe.
Chop 1/2 of an onion.
Chop an equal amount of celery.
And chop an equal amount of green bell pepper
Saute vegetables in a small amount of oil till tender.
Let vegetables cool.
Place 2 pounds ground beef in a large bowl. Then add:
3 Tablespoons ketchup
2 Tablespoons horseradish (the grated variety stored in vinegar and purchased in a jar)
1 and 1/2 slices of bread (soaked in milk, squeezed dry, then pulled apart)
1 teaspoon powdered beef bouillon (or 1 beef bouillon cube crushed)
1 Tablespoon parsley
salt & pepper (to taste)
the cooled vegetables
Combine ingredients well. Place mixture in a foil lined baking pan & shape into a loaf
Bake at 400° for 20 minutes.
Lower heat to 375° and bake for 10 minutes
Lower heat to 350° and bake till done, about 50 minutes
