Mom's Secret Recipe Meatloaf
I have told you in the past, ANYTIME I post a recipe from my Momma, you all should immediately stop what you are doing and print or write it out!
They are ALWAYS wonderful, mouth-watering recipes that are not too fussy.
The surprising secret in this recipe is SALSA- but it only adds to the moistness and offers some added flavor. It does NOT make it spicy or Mexican-flavored.
The topping is DELICIOUS! You'll want seconds. Possibly thirds. Your Momma will not have to tell you to clean your plate!
For this recipe, you will need:
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 of small jar of mild salsa
1 cup finely crushed saltine crackers
2 lbs. ground beef
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped green pepper
Mix all together- put into a loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes (uncovered). Bring out of the oven and put on topping and bake 15 min. more.
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. dried mustard
Best served with mashed potatoes.
