My mom had a long day of cooking on Christmas so she did not want to make dinner on Monday so she told me I could make it. I immediately decided to make up a meatloaf recipe because I do not like meatloaf and I wanted to see if I could turn it into something I do like.
I knew what to get because I have seen my mom make meatloaf so I knew that there are traditional ingredients: ground beef, Italian style bread crumbs, pepper, salt, 1 egg, ketchup, and milk. My twist on meatloaf was to also add bacon and tomatoes.
I combined 1 1/4 pound of ground beef, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, 1/4 cup ketchup, 1 egg, and 1/4 cup milk. For seasonings I added 1 teaspoon of minced garlic, two shakes of Italian Seasoning, two twists of the pepper grinder, and one twist of the salt grinder.
Then I chopped 5 strips of bacon, cooked it and cooled it. After it was cooled I added it to the beef mixture and put it in a loaf pan. Then I diced the tomatoes and placed them on top and cooked it at 350 for 1 hour.
It was sooooooooooo good – it did not even need ketchup, both my parents said that!
If you try it tell me what you think of it:}
