Jim claims this meat loaf is “the best meat loaf” around. He makes it with 2 lbs. all ground beef instead of using pork and veal.
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. ground pork (or ground beef)
1/2 lb. ground veal (or ground beef)
2 tbsp. finely chopped celery
1/4 C. finely chopped onion
2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. sage
1/4 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. poultry seasoning
3 slices soft bread
1 C. warm milk
2 beaten eggs
1 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 C. dry bread crumbs (fine crumbs)
1/2 C. chili sauce
1/2 C. boiling water
Thoroughly mix meats (unless you’re using all ground beef). Add onion, celery, and seasonings.
Cube bread, soak in milk, eggs and Worcestershire Sauce; beat with rotary beater.
Combine meat and egg mixtures and form two loaves. Roll each loaf in bread crumbs and place in greased baking pan. Spread chili sauce on top of each loaf.
Pour water around the base of the loaves in the pan. Bake uncovered at 350F for 60 minutes; baste occasionally with the liquid in the pan.
