Feeding the Masses with Meatloaf and Mac n Cheese!

So… Our stay here in Texas has been great and I’ve been the cook, for the most part. The house currently sits with four adults, two teenage boys (16 & 15), three pre-teen boys, and one little two year old. 

This guy… Lol.

All I can say is that we eat a bunch…

This recipe was just enough to feed this group. Here we go…

Take 2 lbs of ground meat (80/20) and 1 pound of ground pork and place it in a bowl.

Add to it…

1 Tbs Tastefully Simple’s Onion Onion

1 Tbs Tastefully Simple’s Garlic Garlic

1.5 cups of ritz crackers

3 eggs

1 cup of water

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

Then take 1.5 cups of ketchup, 1 Tbs mustard, 1/2 cup of brown sugar

Pour onto meatloaf and bake in a preheated oven at 350° for 1 hour. This is what you will come away with…

This is so yummy. You will absolutely LOVE it!!!

And onto the Mac n Cheese…

Boil a pot of water and cook your pasta according to the directions on the box. I used medium shells and boiled them about 10 minutes.

In a small saucepan, add 2 Tbs butter and flour. Cook for two minutes. This will cook the four taste out.

Add your milk, 2 cups. Continue to wisk.

Next, add your cheese. 2 cups mild cheddar.

Wisk until smooth.

Add 1 Tbs of Tabasco, 3/4 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper.

Mix then toss with the cooked pasta.

Yummy! Seriously! This was a knockout dish. Everyone loved it. 🙂

I hope you give it a try.

Till next time…
