Trudy’s World’s Best Meatloaf

This is one of the best meatloaf recipes that we have ever made; in fact, Mert’s uses this recipe if we have somebody that wants us to make a ready-to-bake meatloaf for them.  Trudy is Nancy’s mom – Nancy gave us permission to use several of Trudy’s recipes – check them out at the recipe wall at the stores.

Trudy’s World’s Best Meatloaf
Ingredients:
Meatloaf ingredients:
2/3 cup dry bread crumbs
1 cup milk
1.5 pounds lean ground beef
2 slightly beaten eggs
¼ cup fresh chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
½ teaspoon ground sage
Topping ingredients:
3 tablespoons brown sugar
¼ cup ketchup
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon dry ground mustard
Ingredients:
Mix all of the meatloaf ingredients.  Mix well, but not excessively (over handling the ground beef makes it tough.)  Put the meatloaf mixture in a greased or lightly sprayed loaf pan.
Mix all of the topping ingredients.  Spread on the top of the meatloaf mixture before baking.
Bake at 350 degrees until center of meatloaf is done – approximately one hour.  To test for doneness, cut into the center of the meatloaf
Remove the meatloaf from the loaf pan immediately and place on a plate or serving platter.  Allow to rest for about 5 minutes.  Leaving the meatloaf in the loaf pan will allow it to absorb the grease from the baking process.
Optional ingredient – pre-cooked bacon on top of the meatloaf mixture before the topping is applied.
Optional ingredient – fold into meatloaf mixture chunks of sharp cheddar cheese.
Serve with fresh salad and baked potato.

Ingredients:
2 to 3 pounds boneless country style ribs
Kosher salt to taste
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
1 can (10.75 oz) condensed cream of mushroom soup
8 oz thickly sliced fresh white mushrooms
½ teaspoon sweet paprika
1 envelope (approx .88 oz) mushroom gravy mix
1 heaping tablespoon flour
Directions:
Place the boneless ribs in the slow cooker.
In a bowl, combine the soup, sliced mushrooms, gravy mix, and paprika. Pour onto the ribs in the cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for about 3 to 4 hours.
Remove the chops to a warm platter and keep warm.
Make a smooth paste with 1 heaping tablespoon of flour and 2 tablespoons of cold water. Add the flour and water mixture to the broth and stir to blend.
Turn to high and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
Serve the ribs and gravy with mashed potatoes with your family’s favorite steamed or fresh vegetables. Also great with noodles instead of the potatoes.

Curried Chicken and Orange Kabobs

Curried Chicken And Orange Kabobs
Ingredients:
½ cup canola oil
2 tablespoons dried minced onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 to 2 tablespoons curry powder
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon coriander
teaspoon cinnamon
1 ½ pounds chicken breast
1 large sweet red pepper
1 large sweet yellow or orange pepper
1 small onion
1 large unpeeled navel orange
Directions:
In a small bowl, mix oil, minced onion, garlic & spices; reserve half of mixture for basting kabobs while cooking.
Cut chicken, peppers, onion & unpeeled orange into 1 inch pieces. On four metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread pork, vegetables and orange; brush with remaining curry mixture. Save a couple orange slices to squeeze over the meat as you eat it.
Lightly oil grill grates. Preheat grill to medium heat. Grill kabobs, covered, 10-15 minutes, or until vegetables and chicken are tender, turning occasionally. Chicken internal temperature should be 165 degrees F and juices should run clear. Baste frequently with reserved curry mixture during the last 4 minutes of cooking.
