Meatloaf gets a lot of bad rap, but if the meatloaf is made with Texas Rib Candy, your family will greet the dinner table with cries of joy, not complaints. Sure there are some pretty awful meat loaf recipes, but you won’t find any of those here. Our Texas Rib Candy meatloaf recipe is the best you’ll ever find.
On these snowy winter days, there’s just nothing finer than a hot oven meal. Comfort food at its best!
1 1/2 pounds hamburger
3/4 cup crushed soda crackers
1/2 cup Texas Rib Candy
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup diced green pepper
1/4 cup diced red pepper
1/4 cup diced onion
dash Worcestershire sauce
dash black pepper
What to do:
Set your oven for 350.
Get out a large bowl and put ALL of the ingredients in it. WITH YOUR HANDS, get it all thoroughly mixed together.
Put the mixture in a baking dish large enough so you can leave a space; this makes it easier to pour off the grease when the meatloaf is done. Squiggle some Texas Rib Candy and ketchup over the top of the loaf, and place the dish in your oven. Bake for 50 minutes, or until the edges of the meatloaf start to look “blackish.”
When it’s done, remove from the oven and let it “set” on the top of your stove for about 15 minutes; this will let you slice it more easily.
If there’s any Rib Candy left, put it on the table so people who want MORE can use it on their slice of meatloaf.
Advice: Don’t add any salt to your meatloaf mixture; the crushed crackers will supply all the salt you’ll need for flavoring.
More Advice: Some people prefer BBQ sauce to the ketchup. Your call.
P.S. Meatloaf is even better the next day, if you have any left over, which you probably won’t. It makes a great sandwich, too.
