These cold winter nights really beg
for Meatloaf and Mashed Taters!!
What a Comfort Meal....Meatloaf fills the menu for me!
I have started roasting meatloaf on a broiler pan...and all the grease drips away. I never cared for a meatloaf swimming in the grease!! I found this technique a few years ago and love to have the loaf covered with bacon....y'all can't go wrong with bacon, can we? And the sauce topping adds that extra punch of flavor since I go heavy on the Tabasco.
Ready for the oven!!

My Favorite Meatloaf
Beef, Main Dish
1 cup whole milk
6 slices white bread
2 pounds ground beef
1 cup (heaping) parmesan cheese; grated
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
3/4 teaspoons salt
black pepper; to taste
1/3 cup flat-leaf parsley; minced
4 whole eggs, beaten
10 slices thin/regular bacon, as needed
1 1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
Tabasco to taste
2 dash Worcestershire sauce
Preheat oven to 350°F. Pour milk over the bread slices. Allow it to soak in
for several minutes. Place the ground beef, milk-soaked bread, Parmesan,
seasoned salt, salt, black pepper, and parsley in a large mixing bowl. Pour
in beaten eggs.
With clean hands, mix the ingredients until well combined. Form the mixture
into a loaf shape on a broiler pan, which will allow the fat to drain.
Line the bottom of the pan with foil for easy cleanup.
Lay bacon slices over the top, tucking them underneath the meatloaf.
Make the sauce: add ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and
hot sauce in a mixing bowl. Stir together. Pour 1/3 of the mixture over
the top of the bacon. Spread with a spoon.
Bake for 45 minutes, then pour another 1/3 of the sauce over the top. Bake
for another 15 minutes. Slice and serve with remaining sauce.
Serve with mashed potatoes.
