Wednesday's afternoons are busy for us. Ella has dance from 5:30 to 6. Then Eva has CCD from 6:30 to 7:30 (also her bedtime). So I have to make dinner ahead of time and either keep it warm in the oven or be reheatable. Tonite, I made meatloaf and mashed potatoes. (no veggie because I haven't gone to the store in ages, so the freezer is out!)
SOUPERIOR MEAT LOAF
1 envelope Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Onion Soup Mix
2 lbs. ground beef
3/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs*
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup ketchup
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Combine all ingredients in large bowl.
2. Shape into loaf in 13 x 9-inch baking or roasting pan.
3. Bake uncovered 1 hour or until done. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
*Substitution: Use 1-1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs or 5 slices fresh bread, cubed.
Peel one potato per person plus one. Cover with cold water and cook until a fork slides in easily. Drain, return to pot and mash with a masher or a hand mixer. Add 1/2 stick butter, 1/2 cup sour cream and about a 1/4 cup (or less) of milk. Mix together and serve.
