Basic Meatloaf a la Paula Deen
by DrDan at 101 Cooking For Two April 25, 2011
My heart can't take reading most Paula Deen recipes. The doctor in my just can't take it. But I enjoy watching her cook and her personality. So last week I wanted meatloaf and a Food Network email arrive and there was Paula Deen and her basic meatloaf and it looked like I would live through it. The original recipe was for 1 pound. Never will I make a 1 pound meatloaf. Meatloaf is for leftovers. So first I double it. Then I "rounded" the ingredients. 1 cup of onion is one medium onion and so on. Also I decreased the salt a little and decreased to topping since doubling does not double surface area.
2 pounds ground beef`
oven to 375 convection. Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and
transfer to baking dish. Like all meat loaf, do not over mix.
Mix topping and spread over meatloaf then bake for approx 1 hour. Until internal temp of about 170.
