Meatloaf Dinner

Meatloaf Dinner

Last night we made meatloaf with roasted carrots, new potatoes and homemade biscuits. All the main ingredients: Photobucket 1 lb ground beef 1 lb mild ground sausage 1 pack instant onion soup mix 2 eggs 2 or 3 kinds of leftover chips (we used bbq, sour cream and onion, and nacho cheese doritos) bread new potatoes carrots (not shown: bbq sauce)* Carrots: Cut the ends off the carrots and give them a good rinse. Then place them in a pan (a pre-heated cast iron pan is what I use) and pu them in the oven at 350F Photobucket Meatloaf: Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl with a little bit of water. Then add the onion soup mix, about a handful each of crumbled chips, and 2 slices of torn up bread.

Photobucket Grr! Argh! Photobucket Once it's thoroughly mushed, turn it out onto the pan and form the loaf. Photobucket Potatoes: These are easy. Just quarter them with a knife and arrange them around the meatloaf. Photobucket Photobucket *BBQ sauce I forgot to buy some, so I had to make it. The ingredients are: Photobucket 1/2 cup ketchup 1/4 cup honey 2 tbs spicy brown mustard 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp onion powder 1/4 tsp garlic powder chili powder to taste red pepper powder to taste Just whisk it all together and pour it on top of the meatloaf. Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Cover with foil and stick it in the oven. Photobucket Photobucket Biscuits David's the bread maker in the family, and the kids love it when he makes something to go with dinner. His ingredients are: Photobucket 2 cups sifted all purpose flour 3/4 cup milk (we use skim or you could use buttermilk, which we always forget to buy) 4 tbs shortening (you can also use butter) 2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt Mix flour, salt, and baking powder and cut in the shortening. Add the milk slowly, until a soft dough is formed then turn it out onto a floured surface and lightly kneadd it for 30 seconds. Roll it out to about 1/2 inch thickness and cut out the biscuits with a floured cutter. (Davis uses a can with both ends cut out.) Also, if you spray the pan with butter spray it'll help keep them from sticking. Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Raise the oven temperature to 400F and pop them in. When they're done the meatloaf and carrots will be, too. Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket You may need to let the potatoes cook a little longer, which is fine since you want to let the meatloaf sit for a few minutes. Just transfer the carrots onto a plate and cover them with the meatloaf foil, then move the potatoes over into the carrot pan and pop them back into the oven on 400F for about 10 minutes or until done. And the finished meal: Photobucket I know I went a little crazy with pics in this post, but we had so much fun doing this I really wanted to share the whole process. :)
