Looking for an Old Fashioned Meatloaf Recipe? I Am Focused on Family Recipes Only!?

Question from Lauretta R: Looking for an old fashioned meatloaf recipe? I am focused on Family Recipes only!?
I am trying to re-create my grandmothers meatloaf. I know it had onions, corn flakes (crushed), egg, ground beef, I think ketchup on top, chile sauce?, green pepper, milk?, worcestershire sauce? I really can’t remember. I am searching for family recipes that YOU have been using for years. I have researched many recipes but have never found the exact one.
Thank you so much!

Answer by doereen69
Yep you got it same one my granny made!! 1 lb. ground beef, 1/2 pound ground pork, 1 egg, 1/4 cup of crushed cornflakes, 1/4 cup of ketchup, and a dash of worcestershire sauce. Mix egg with a splash of milk and beat. Add egg, ketchup, worcestershire sauce, cornflakes to meat and mix thoroughly. Put in loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 min. or until done. My granny used to put bacon strips ontop to keep meat moist and then add ketchup to the top about 10 min. before it is done to add a bit of extra flavor. Bon appetite!

Answer by princess buttercup
put what you want inside yours. then mold it into your loaf pan and bake at 350 for 1hr. i always use bread crumbs or crackers (instead of corn flakes) that i first soak in milk and then mix with meat (i now use ground turkey),ketchup, worcestshire,onions,garlic powder,parsley,eggs and bell peppers. right before putting in the oven i spread ketchup over the top. it carmelizes and makes the meat loaf look awesome!

Answer by bugs280
Here’s one from my family. Mom calls it Sicilian Meat Roll.
2lbs ground beef.
1 egg
1 cup Progresso Italian seasoned bread crumbs.
1 can tomato soup
thin sliced ham
shredded mozzarella cheese

Mix the meat, egg, bread crumbs and half the tomato soup. On a sheet of waxed paper, flatten it out like a rectangle pizza crust. Place a layer of ham on, then the shredded cheese. Roll it up and pinch the ends tight. Put in a pan, top with remaining tomato soup and the parsley.

Bake like a regular meat loaf.
Best served with garlic toast.

Answer by grdangel
This is a recipe that has been in my family for over 30 years.

Moms Famous Meatloaf

2 small cans tomato sauce
1/4 cup worchestershire sauce
1/2 onion chopped
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 cup brown sugar

Mix all sauce ingredients together in bowl, set aside.

Ingredients (Meatloaf):
2 pounds ground beef
1/2 chopped onion
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup or more if needed, quick oatmeal (not instant)
1 teaspoon garlic salt

In another bowl add ground beef, 1/2 chopped onion, egg, oatmeal, garlic salt, pepper, and 1/3 of the sauce mixture. Mix together well.

Place in pan, making space between meat and pan around edges with fingers. Flatten top, spread more sauce over top and cook 1 hour, at 350F. Drain off grease half way (30 min) and add more sauce. Reserve some sauce for adding when served. The oatmeal disappears, is healthy and you can’t taste it. It just holds it together better. Add more if you need it.

Answer by pindulidog
Are you positive that she used corn flakes? I have a recipe that uses Worcestershire, but it calls for Wheat Chex cereal.
1/2 c. ketchup
2 Tbs.brown sugar
1/2 tsp.powdered mustard
4 tsps. Worcestershire sauce
2 tsps.seasoned salt
1 1/2 tsps.onion powder
1/4 tsp.garlic powder
1/4 tsp.ground black pepper
1 egg
2 Tbs. finely chopped green pepper
1 1/2 c.Wheat Chex cereal
1 1/2 lbs.ground beef
In a large bowl combine ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard. Reserve 4 Tbs. mixture for topping. To remaining mixture add Worcestershire sauce, salt, onion, garlic powder, pepper, and egg. Blend well. Stir in green pepper and Wheat Chex. Let stand 5 minutes. Add ground beef. Mix well, breaking up Chex. Shape into loaf in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350 for 65 minutes. Spread top with reserved ketchup mixture. Bake additional 15 minutes. Aprox.6 servings.

Oh, wait, I just realized that there are no real onions in that. This is probably not too helpful now. You sound like a really good cook though. Do you think you can add real onions, or would you have to add extra dry cereal? My family usually substitutes Lipton dry mushroom onion soup mix for some of the dry ingredients if we are missing some.
Have you tried looking in any old Three Rivers Cookbooks?

Q&a: Everyday Sweet Potato Recipe?

Question from Hannah: Everyday sweet potato recipe?
Hello and thank you in advance! I’m looking for a good, STOVETOP, savory, sweet potato recipe besides the usual mash. What are some of your favorites?

Best answer:

Answer by Sew What?
I like to microwave sweet potatoes. Slice them into rounds when done or just cut in half lengthwise.
A little butter and lemon pepper seasoning is all you need.

Sweet potato fries are good too. Scrub or peel the yams. Slice into lengths or rounds. Fry in a skillet of hot oil These cook faster than white potatoes.

Answer by Janet
Do a sweet potato hash. Boil the potatoes first to get them just at fork tender. Dice them and add bacon, onion, garlic and red bell pepper…all diced. Fry until tender and crispy in a little canola oil.

Answer by Jodi D
Baked Sweet Potatoes
Bake just like regular potatoes, 400 degrees F for about an hour or until fork tender. Dress with butter, sour cream, chopped green onions, bacon, shredded cheese — all the trimmings you use on baked white potatoes

Recipe for Bisquits and Gravy? Like You Get in the Deep South?

Question from Mr. Panky: Recipe for Bisquits and Gravy? Like you get in the deep south?
I can’t seem to replicate the bisquits I get at rural diners in Memphis, Georgia, NC. How do you make your bisquits crumbly? How do you prepare sausage and gravy? Internet recipes suck.

Best answer:

Answer by phllipe b
tradtional brings corn meal to the gravy,,,,,, i dont,,,,you do know the more you mix your bisquit dough the tougher the bisquits become? and to use cold butter,lard/shortening
i have screwed the gravy up mpre than once but butter always brings the repair
you asked it is corn meal,,,,,,not flour, meal

Answer by Jim
Oh kay…I will school you!

Get a lb of hot pork sausage and break it apart into small pieces and fry it till it is crispy. Keep the hot grease. Put the fried sausage aside.

In the pan you are going to make a white sauce. Add butter until you have enough and then fry flour in the pan. Use a pan scraper and scrape the flour and let it cook a bit, but not browned out. Just a little cooking to cook that flour. Then use half and half cream 50% and whole milk 50% (mix the two) and pour it into the pan small amounts at a time with reduced heat. Keep adding it while mixing with the scraper until it becomes a thick white sauce. Add salt and black pepper to your liking. Then when the white sauce is done, add the fried pork back to the white sauce. You can also use some bacon fat from frying bacon, which I serve on the side. In the mean time, you have some bisquits just hot out of the oven, right? I like Pillsburry Buttermilk buisquits, serve piping hot pork white sauce over the top of opened bisquits with bacon on the side.

You might also want to think about serving grits with this. I would make the grits first.

Two eggs over easy on the side or on top of the bisquits and gravy.

In the late summer, pick green tomatoes and serve fried green tomatoes with it.

This is a true Southern recipe.

Answer by Nathalie K
2 cups flour
1 T baking powder
1 t salt
1/4 cup lard or shortening(I prefer lard)
3/4 cup milk

stir flour,baking powder and salt together.cut in lard (I use my fingers) add milk stir to form a dough .place on floured surface.turn to coat with flour, do not knead.press or roll out to 1/2 inch thickness.cut out biscuit.bake at 350 for 20 mins or until golden brown…you can brush with butter if you like.

for a 2 cup serving of gravy

3 sausage pattiesor 4 oz of bulk… brown sausage in pan ..add 3 T butter,or lard let melt ,stir in 4 T flour let cook 1 min then slowly add 2 cups milk …stir until thick. add 1 t salt 1 t pepper to start…add more if need be.

Answer by Lost and Found

Answer by Kracker
I don’t do biscuits well either & I’m southern born & raised. The life saver for me is “Jiffy” Buttermilk biscuit mix. Sometimes difficult to find but Wal Mart usually has it. Ask your grocery store manager, they can order it. Its easy, good & always works. BTW an old lady who makes wonderful biscuits told me
“Give it up, your hands are too warm to make good biscuits.” Might be true as I seem to have better luck if I dip my hands in ice water before kneading. Maybe you have the same problem?

Q&a: I Have to Do a Function for School… Do You Have Any Good Finger Food Recipes?

Question from Kiss_Kris_xo: I have to do a function for school… do you have any good finger food recipes?
Send a a recipes to seaweed_puppy@yahoo.com.au or can you give me a site or leave a good one one as your answer, thankyou so much!!

Best answer:


Answer by jeannette p
Fingerfoods can be sweet or savory. For the sweet ones consider:

bar cookies

For the savory ones, here’s some of my favorites:

mini orange muffins with cream cheese and thinly sliced honey ham
mini croissants with spinach and cream cheese
salami rollups: pepper salami smeared with goat cheese and
rolled around a cornichon and skewerd with a
cheese platter with cold green grapes
fresh asparagas, cooked crisp tender and wrapped with prosciutto or thinly sliced ham
mini cocktail smokies in barbecue sauce
mini meatballs in barbecue sauce
roast beef thinly sliced and spread with horseradish mixed with cream cheese, rollups

Have fun!

Answer by greengirl
try making some wraps with assorted flavored cream cheeses and soft flour tortillias, they are called pinwheels and they are really easy and great finger food. Spread the cream cheese on the tortillias, roll them up and cut them into 1 inch rounds. Also try some basic stuff like cheese and cracker and some nice homemade brownies. Simple is best.

Answer by Gillipoos
It really does depend on the actual function.
Is it formal or casual, sit down buffet or stand and nibble as you talk??

I don’t have any specific recipes as such but my advice is to keep it simple and healthy.
Any food looks great if it is presented well.
If making sandwiches, use 3 layers with a brown slice as the middle layer. Cut off the crusts and slice them into bite size slices.
Make the food colourful with lots of salad garnishing.
Have a selection of cold meats and some french bread with small packets of butter so they can make their own sarnies.

Many people nowadays like cold pasta with a spicy sauce or rice. Try adding some apples, pineapple, sweetcorn and sultanas to a plain bowl of cooked rice. It is colourful, healthy and filling and the flavours compliment eachother beautifully!
This also caters for vegetarians!!

I hope this has helped and good luck with the function.

Cheese-Filled Mushrooms
1 1/2 pounds white mushrooms
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup mayonnaise
Crumbled cooked bacon, to taste (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a large cookie sheet; set aside. (If desired, line cookie sheet with aluminum foil to save on cleanup.) Wash mushrooms thoroughly; dry and remove stems, hollowing out a hole where the stem was attached to the mushroom. Set aside. Mix together cheeses, mayonnaise and bacon (if using). Pack the center of each mushroom with a mound of the cheese mixture. Arrange mushrooms on cookie sheet. Bake until cheese is browned and mushrooms are shiny, about 20 minutes. Mushrooms may be stuffed and refrigerated ahead of time, then baked as needed.

Baked Crab Rangoon
1 can (6 oz.) white crabmeat, drained, flaked
4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup KRAFT Mayo Light Mayonnaise
12 won ton wrappers

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Mix crabmeat, Neufchatel cheese, onions and mayo.
SPRAY 12 medium muffin cups with cooking spray. Gently place 1 won ton wrapper in each cup, allowing edges of wrappers to extend above sides of cups. Fill evenly with crabmeat mixture. BAKE 18 to 20 min. or until edges are golden brown and filling is heated through. Serve warm. Garnish with chopped green onions, if desired.
