Meatloaf, Beet loaf…

If you haven’t seen the movie “A Christmas Story”, that’s probably going to be a weird title! There’s a scene in it, where the younger brother doesn’t want to eat his Mama’s meatloaf, and he says “meatloaf beetloaf…”. We’ve seen it so many times, that’s what popped into my head, as I was writing this. 😆

We have a deep freezer full of beef and pork. Every time Adam’s brother sends a cow or pig to the butcher’s, we go in half. I’ve played around with different ways to make meatloaf, and discovered that 2 pounds of ground beef, and 1 pound of ground pork makes it amazing! I use these McCormick seasoning packets,

I use 2 packets, since it only calls for 2 pounds of ground beef. I beat 2 eggs in a bowl. That’s important to do, before you mix into everything else. Then, mix 1/2 to 2/3 cup of milk, 1/4 to 1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs, and the beaten eggs in with the meat. Lightly spray the bottom of a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray. Bake at 375 for about an hour. When it’s done, I like to spread ketchup over the top. It’s super simple, but everybody here loves it.

Note: Make sure to use lean ground beef and/or turkey. I’m also using the one pound of unseasoned ground pork.

I’m making honey cornbread, and green bean casserole, to go with. We’re also having some raw broccoli and carrots, with Ranch dip.

  1. I am a huge “Christmas Story”fan. So much so that I had to subscribe to HBO Max last year to stream the new “A Christmas Story Christmas”last year. So funny you mentioned that meatloaf/beetloaf. Lol

    My husband loves meatloaf. Kinders seasoning brought out a meatloaf seasoning that is really good but I want to try your blend. Also I learned a tip from chef Ina Garten a few months ago. She always puts a pan of water below the meatloaf when cooking. It helps it not dry out.

    Take care and don’t shoot your eye out 😊

  2. Ya know if I was going to Overeaters Anonymous I would have to give this blog up immediately. Actually, if I had to choose between losing weight and the blog I would just buy larger clothes!

  3. That sounds so yummy. The beginning with Adam is so romantic. I bet Jackie must have taken those photos! Hope Pj is doing ok.
    I thought as I comment so much I would do it under a proper name. So Annie from now on.

  4. Eve, never tried that but I shall, I use ground beef, ground pork and ground veal when I make Italian meatballs, and my Grandma always told me to fry them and not bake them, they taste better.
    Have a great day! Sir 🙂
