Mother’s Meatloaf Recipe

Meatloaf is a comfort food that most of us can be taken back in time with.  My mother used 57 as her special ingredient.  What about your family, what is their secret to their meatloaf recipe?  If you don’t have a favorite already try Faylee’s moms recipe.  It contains ingredients that once combined should make a delicious combination! 

1 lb Ground round

1/2 lb whole hog sausage
1 potato [medium] shredded
1 8 inch carrot [shedded]
2 eggs [large, lightly beaten]
1/2 cup celery [finely diced]
1 small onion [diced]
3/4 t salt
1/2 t black pepper
1 T dried Parsley
1/2 cup Ketchup

Mix all ingredients, except ketchup, together in a large mixing bowl.  Taking care to fold together, not knead, as not to toughen the meats.  Place mixture in a loaf pan, pressing lightly to push out all the air pockets.  Use the back of a spoon to flatten the top.  Using the same spoon, spread the ketchup on the top to within 1/2 inch of the pan sides.
Place in pre-heated 350 degree oven and bake for 50 minutes.  Let cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing.

    This is a great way to get some carrots and celery into a meal. I never thought of that! My mom taught me to make meatloaf by using a "little bit of this, and a little bit of that," so I'll have to remember the trick to get a few extra veggies in there!
