MeatLoaf?!?! I Don't Get Any!

Thank you all for your kind comments. My Mommy feels some better. Anyway, my Mommy loves meatloaf! When she was younger her grandma would make it for her birthday dinner every year. She has a very special recipe that she would like to share with y'all! I would like to tell you that this recipe feeds her & Daddy so you may have to increase it, if your feeding more than two people, but you will love it, we promise that! you will need:
1lb. ground turkey meat(you can use beef Mommy & Daddy use turkey because it's not as greasy)
1/2 pack of saltine crackers
a little bit of milk
*1/2 tsp ground mustard
*1/2 tsp curry powder
*1/2 tsp seasoned salt
*1/2 tsp garlic powder
*1 tsp minced onion
*dash of pepper
*dash of salt
(for the sauce)
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup ketchup
1 Tsp any type barbecue sauce
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Crush the 1/2 pack of saltines & mix all the seasonings in with them(the ones with the * next to them)
Add just enough milk to make the saltines soft. Almost like a paste. Because the crackers have absorbed the milk they will not absorb the grease of the meat(like bread crumbs), but the crackers will still give the meatloaf the fluffiness that the bread crumbs are most common for.
Mix in with your preferred meat. Make into a loaf, bake for 30-45 mins. 15 minutes in put some on the special sauce on.

Now to make the sauce. Mix the brown sugar, ketchup, & barbecue sauce together(sometimes it helps to microwave it). Add some to the top while the meatloaf is cooking. The sauce really makes the meatloaf, we serve the meatloaf with mashed potatoes, sweet peas & biscuits. My Daddy eats it the sauce on his mashed potatoes.We hope you enjoy this recipe!

I want some!

Hi, Eduardo..

Wow...That sounds delish...

My Mom makes some pretty good meatloaf herself, but she thinks she is gonna try this recipe, too...The Special Sauce sounds great...

Nothing better than a nice home cooked dinner of meatloaf & mashed potatoes...

Your mom actual cooks??? The only thing mine does is make coffee and use that dumb juice machine.

I hope you get some meatloaf for all your hard snuggle work.

What do you mean you don't get any? Not even a teeny tiny little piece? That's not fair at all!
