Pimento Cheese, Not Your Grandma's Spread

Pimento cheese is one of those foods that has been so corrupted by the food industry that it has become synonymous with other crappy foods like Spam.  I'm not even certain what store bought pimento cheese might contain, nor do I want to find out.  It's a shame because pimento cheese can be a delightful treat, even if it does Read the full post…

Shingles Vacine and Treatment

A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with shingles so I felt I should discuss this nasty virus once again.  If you ever had chicken pox, you are at risk for getting shingles and believe me, you don't want it.  Shingles is a painful rash with blisters that scab over and may take 4 weeks or more to heal.  The Read the full post…

Time For Comfort Food – Brown Sugar Meatloaf

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on November 2, 2010 ][ In Beef, Chicken & Other Poultry ]

Finally cooler weather is here and that means time for some of our favorite comfort foods.  My menus change drastically with the weather and season, to take advantage of seasonal fruits and vegetables and also because some foods seem too heavy and hot for summer.  Comfort foods can be quick to prepare though they may need longer cooking times, like a pot of beef soup.  I have two family favorite meatloaf recipes I use most of the time.  I have already featured my meatloaf with shredded veggies so today I am sharing my other recipe which is actually easier too.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
1 to 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef or ground turkey
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1 small onion chopped
3/4 cup finely crushed saltine crackers
Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 5×9 inch loaf pan.  Press the brown sugar evenly over the bottom of the pan.  Spread the ketchup over the sugar.  Thoroughly mix remaining ingredients together and press on top of ketchup.  Bake for an hour or until lightly browned on top and juices run clear.

Serve this with the roasted fingerling potatoes which also cook for an hour (recipe on blog) and a fruit or other vegetable.  This meatloaf is sure to be a hit with your family.
