Mom's meatloaf...add your own.

dragonfare | Jul 19, 2007 12:58 PM

Makes a non-dense, mildly spicy and very juicy meatloaf with a ring of cooked carrots and potatoes.

2 lbs ground beef
cup of diced green pepper.
2 whole eggs
salt, pepper to taste.
cornflakes as needed.
Heinz Chili Sauce
big bowl
oven at 325.
small carrots
small potatoes.

put beef in bowl, add pepper, whole eggs, salt, pepper. Hand work until mixed [use latex gloves.]
Add a cup of cornflakes: handmix and if you feel you need more, add more.
Work in half a cup of chili sauce.

Mold into a loaf.
Top with Chili Sauce.
Ring with raw carrots and potatoes [peeled or not, your choice: I recommend Irish]
Bake at 325 until carrots and potatoes are well done.

You may serve this in slices if you've been stingy with the cornflakes. If you added a lot, you may need a spoon, but the end result is a real comfort food in either case, and cold, it does well in sandwiches for the next week.
