Just Plain Cooking is BACK!

Do you think I used a bookmark to find my stopping place in Memaw's cookbook? As a former English teacher I never use a bookmark ( well almost never). And I never know where I stopped reading! Pretty stupid, I know. I have the most beautiful and interesting bookmarks, so don't send me one. I won't use it. In fact, I have begun to regift my bookmarks. Be warned.

After searching my blogs for the last couple of months, I think I have found my place. If this is a repeat, sorry.

Company Meat Loaf (Memaw's)

1/2 cup bell pepper (chopped)
1 toe garlic (minced)
2 onions (chopped)
1/2 cup celery (chopped)
1 cup bread crumbs
1 pound veal ( ground)
1 pound beef ( ground)
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

1 can cream of mushroom soup
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons horseradish
2/3 cup catsup

Add bell pepper, garlic, onion, celery, and bread crumbs to ground meats. Work in eggs and milk along with salt and pepper. Shape and put in loaf pan. Bake at 325 degrees F for 45 minutes.

Mix soup, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, and catsup and pour on top of loaf. Bake 30 minutes longer. Sprig with parsley before serving.
Serves 8.

((((Mom, is this the meatloaf that my son loves? I use Ann Lander's recipe, and he likes that, too.))))

The only thing I would change is to BROWN THE ONIONS!!! You know me! I would beg Memaw not to put them in anything!!!

I agree that the onions should be cooked in some way. Bet she never thought about doing that. I hate to crunch down on a raw onion in baked dishes.
