Earlier this week I came across a recipe for Tantalizingly Tangy Meatloaf at allrecipes.com. I had all ingredients on-hand with the exception of pineapple preserves. There was no way I was going to the store with the kids for one ingredient (besides that, I've never seen pineapple preserves and who knows if the grocery store would even have it). I did, however have canned pineapple...the wheels started turning. I wonder what would happen if I were to blend the pineapple a little and use it instead of preserves. It was worth a try. If it sucked....well, I'd know never to do that again, right?
1lb ground beef
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
garlic powder to taste (I used 1.5 teaspoons--we love us some garlic)
1 dash Worcestershire sauce
Another thing you should know: raw meat totally grosses me out. I do my best to avoid touching it. Unfortunately, this needed my hands.
Once all ingredients are combined, the recipe says to bake it in a 9x5 inch loaf pan at 350 degrees for 30 to 50 minutes.
1/3 cup ketchup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup pineapple preserves (I used puree and hoped for the best)
Add the sauce on top of the loaf 20 minutes before removing it from the oven.
|It smelled pretty good.|
Have you tried any more recipes lately?
