His and Hers Meatloaves
I bought a couple jars of pineapple salsa on clearance for 75c. As it turns out, they were on clearance for a good reason. It is nasty. I even tried cooking with it to disguise the flavor, but it still came through. Ugh. Hubby didn't seem to mind it though, so I figured I'd make some Mexican meatloaves in muffin tins for him. I didn't use the Rachael Ray recipe that I linked to, however I'm sure it's a good one (it is Rachael Ray, after all!)
I took two pounds of ground turkey, one pound of ground sausage, 3 eggs, almost 2 cups of cracker crumbs and some oatmeal to make up the difference, some pepper, and a chopped onion. I mixed well and divided it into two bowls.
To his meatloaf, I added 1/2 cup of nasty salsa and all the shredded cheese that was left (probably somewhere between a half cup and a cup). To my meatloaf, I added 1/2 cup of ketchup, almost a cup of chopped dill pickles, 3/4 cup of pickle juice, and a dab of brown sugar.
I put the meatloaf mixture into muffin tins and popped them in the oven for about 30 or so minutes at 350 degrees. Three pounds of meat makes about two dozen meatloaves. If we weren't such pigs in this house, we could pop the extras into the freezer. (We can eat 24 meatloaves lickety split).
What's your favorite meatloaf recipe?
