What is on the Menu for today? Meatloaf and Cheesy PotatoesThis is a favorite in our home. A good MAN MEAL (meaning Men like it!). Traditional. Everyone loves it, so there are no left overs!!!I wanted to share this cheesy potato recipe after I shared canning potatoes last week. Why can potatoes if you do not have ways to use them? This recipe is very easy and it is REALLY good! You can bring this side dish to a pot luck and your pan will be wiped clean!
2 lbs. ground beef (venison or turkey)
1.5 c. rolled oats (bread crumbs)
1 chopped onion
2 Tbs Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Add all ingredients together, mix thoroughly.
Pat into large loaf pan. Bake 400˚F for 1 hour.
Slice and serve.
Watch my youtube video on making meatloaf with Junior. I had just drank a cup of coffee so I get pretty excited about making meatloaf. I sound like a chipmunk:) It is a funny video. It shows how easy it is to make meatloaf. Even a child could help.
I made my own catsup to can on our Homesteading for Beginners DVD vol. 4. You can watch the entire tutorial on the DVD. It is easy and great to have on hand. When you are looking to stay away from all the chemicals and artificial ingredients in store boughten brands, this recipe is for you…
1 bushel tomatoes
Wash tomatoes. Cut the tomatoes into quarters and run them through a food mill to remove seeds, skins, and stems.Pour sauce into a big stainless steal stock pot. For one bushel you get about 14 quarts of sauce.
Add to stock pot (you can add things to your taste):
1/3 cup garlic
1/3 cup onion
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup lemon juice
4 cups sugar or xylitol
2 gallons tomato paste
Stir all ingredients together and bring to a boil. If you do not use tomato paste, you need to cook the mixture down for 12 hours or until desired thickness.
Add jars to pressure canner. Pour water into the bottom of the canner to about 3 inches up (About 2 1/2 cups of water). 10 lbs pressure for 25 minutes.
Water Bath Canning:
Place jars into water bath canner. Fill water to the tops of jars, cover, bring to a boil and let boil for 45 minutes.
