Lisa.. this is my meatloaf....

1 1/2 lbs of chopped chuck...or (80/20 mix)
1cup herb Pepperidge farm stuffing... ( more if you like)( blue bag)
1/2 cup diced green peppers (optional)
1/2 cup caramelized onion ( optional) or 1/4 teaspn onion powder
1 - 8 oz can Hunt's tomato sauce
1T Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspn pepper
3 eggs

Mix all ingredients with with 1/2 of the tomato sauce...

Put mix in loaf pan.......pour remaining tomato sauce over the meat loaf
Bake 400 degrees for 1 hour....

For gravy....

Melt 2 T butter in a fry pan, (If you have pan drippings add them) add enough flour to absorb the butter, cook a few min, then add 1cup water or low sodium beef broth. Stir and cook and if you want a thinner gravy, add more broth. Add a 1/2 teaspoon Kitchen Bouquet seasoning. Stir, taste... add salt and pepper if needed. Serve over meat loaf and potatoes.

I like this gravy because I can make it any time I want and control the salt content. I find packaged gravies too salty.

Thanks for the recipe Jeannie. I'm going to make your meatloaf soon and definitely try the gravy when I do. I'm starting a class two nights a week and I want to be able to cook some meals ahead and package them for my husband when I'm not able to be there. Thanks again!

kewl!.. let me know how you like it....

I slice and individually wrap the left over meat loaf in plastic wrap, and freeze in a freezer bag. This way, I just take out as many slices as I want.... *s*

I have a great pot roast recipe to make in the crockpot if you would lke that...*s*

3 1/2 -4lb rump roast or cut of your choice
1- McCormick or Schilling Bag 'N' season for pot roast {save the bag for another use]
1 1/2 - 2 cans of low sodium beef broth
1/2 package of onion soup mix
4 ounces Hunt's tomato sauce..

[Combine contents of seasoning packet with 1 1/2 cans
of beef broth and onion soup mix]
Enough carrots peeled and cut on the diagonal to cover the bottom of the crockpot4
Enough quartered potatoes to cover carrots and more if you need more potatoes
Place browned pot roast on top***
Pour liquid mixture over the roast
Cover and cook low 8 hours.

***Flour the roast l and brown in a little oil in a pan before placing in crock pot, this will enhance the flavor of the meat*

If you are home...let it cook 1-2 hours on high then put on low.....

Like to freeze meatballs so that I can eat them with spaghetti & sauce. If you cook meatballs they are a little drier than a meatloaf since they are cooked all around and added to sauce. Meatloaf is thicker & wider and baked in the oven making it moister in the inside. I usually add oatmeal,eggs,peppers & onion to meatloaf would not add these to meatballs. Guess everyone cooks different ways.

Hi Jeannie,
Have not been on for awhile had trouble with my computer. Called that I could not get online when they got thru with me erased everything. Said I had gone on 9,500 sites in three years erased them all even took out all my cookies to log back on. Made me download my program again still had problems getting on the web. After hours working with them just clicked on system restore to the last day it was working and here I am. Afraid to use the new program they sent me was terrible not being able to get online. Glad to be back enjoying myself with you girls.
