Meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Pure comfort food for me–although I have to admit it’s not one of my kids’ favorites. Still, sometimes they have to suffer! This came from one of the freezer cooking lists I’m on, although I, of course, modified it a bit. First I halved it. I can never figure out these two pound meatloaves. I mean, 1/4 pound of ground beef is a good serving size if there’s plenty of other food so a 2 pound meatloaf is about 8 servings for me. I don’t like leftovers that much! Someone should publish a cookbook of just meatloaves. Maybe they have already… If so, this should be in it! I’m instantly attracted to anything with Worcestershire sauce in it, of course, as I’ve admitted before. Worcestershire chicken, Worcestershire shrimp, Pulled Pork, Crab Cakes, Welsh Rarebit/Rabbit–even the family favorite hamburger recipe.
My mother’s meatloaf recipe had the right idea, but didn’t carry it far enough. More! I have must have more Worcestershire. And the topping idea of maple syrup and ketchup was inspired.0
