Our weekly Let’s Make a Meal recipe from Jyle Steinback’s “Super Market Gourmet”, is one of Nate-no’s favorite meals – Meat Loaf. My little guy loves meat loaf so much that he affectionately calls it Meat Love.

This is also another easy Feed the Freezer recipe (see Trisha’s tip).

Three-Ingredient Meat Loaf (Meat Love)

1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 cups roasted tomato and garlic pasta sauce
1½ lbs. extra-lean ground beef

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9×5 loaf pan with cooking spray. Combine bread crumbs and 1½ cups of the pasta sauce in a large bowl. Add beef and mix until ingredients are well combined. Press mixture into loaf pan; bake uncovered 1 hour. Spread remaining pasta sauce over top and cook 30 minutes, until meat loaf is completely cooked through.

Jyl’s Tip: you can substitute extra-lean ground turkey for beef, crushed croutons for bread crumbs, and/or your favorite pasta sauce for the roasted tomato and garlic variety.

Trisha’s Tip: I make individual LARGE meat (loaf) balls, and then use my cup cake tin to bake them. I also freeze them (un-cooked) in pre-formed meat (loaf) balls, so that when I am preparing a meal I can take out of my freezer the number of meat (loaf) balls that I need depending on the number of people I am serving.

    I have many cookbooks, and really enjoy searching through them for recipes for my family. My favorite would have to be a cookbook published by my home church (Faith Baptist Church in Wilmington, DE) many years ago. It’s got all the best recipes from members of the congregation, and what is really neat is that it gives the person’s name who submitted the recipe. So many of the dear ladies who submitted recipes are no longer with us, but I remember them from my youth. What a great legacy to leave behind!
