Something was wrong with my meatloaf
I decided to make meatloaf today. It has been a while since I have made it but honestly over the last 40 years I have made a lot of meatloaf. This is the first time that I really ever blew it. How can you mess up meatloaf? Pretty easy it turns out if you don't put in the breadcrumbs.
I make a recipe called Susan's Meatloaf. I have made the same one for so many years that I never use a recipe anymore. I take about two pounds of ground beef, chop half a large green pepper and a medium size onion, add a tablespoon of horseradish and a few squirts of ketchup. I mix it with my hands then place it in a stone loaf pan and cover the top with more ketchup. What I forgot was about a cup of seasoned breadcrumbs. I cook it at 375 for about an hour.
First, I have to say, the meatloaf tasted fine but it just didn't hold together very well. It was then that I realized I had forgotten something. I guess that is what happens when you think you know a recipe and you don't even have to think about it. Evidently, I do need to think about it in the future.
