although my kids love my cooking/baking, my daughter wins in the meatloaf catagory! i asked her to write down 1 of her many recipes. this recipe is 1 of my favorites!
AMBER'S CONFETTI MEATLOAF
1 each of carrot,onion (or 1/2 a leek),stalk of celery
and a clove of garlic(or 2 tbsp jarred garlic)
saute until softened. when cool add a beaten egg and 2/3 cup ketchup.
make crumb mix,grind in food chopper,1/3 cup wheat germ,2 slices
of bread and 1/2 a sleeve of ritz crckers. add to liquid mixture,then add
1 1/2 - 2 pounds ground beef 85% lean.
pack lightly into a bread pan,cover with a thin layer of ketchup.
bake @ 375f for 45-60 minutes
i sprinkle 1 tbsp of brown sugar on the ketchup,but amber does not!
she says this is her recipe so dont tell ppl 2 put brown sugar on it! lol
if u r trying 2 hide vegtables from ur kids,mince them finely or run them
through the food chopper,after they r COOKED.
