Applesauce Meatloaf

1 1/2 pounds extra-lean ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 cup finely diced onion
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup applesauce
1 cup bread crumbs
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients; mix well. Place
the meatloaf mixture in the prepared pan. Bake for 1 1/2
to 2 hours. Let cool 10 minutes; remove to a platter and
slice. Serves 6 to 8.
Barbecue Meatloaf

2 to 2 1/2 pounds ground chuck
1 can tomato soup, divided
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup crushed Ritz crackers
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, divided
2 tablespoons dried minced onions
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Combine ground chuck with half of the tomato soup, egg,
crackers, honey, 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, onions,
salt, and pepper. Mix well and form into a ball. Place a
crinkled length of aluminum foil in the slow cooker/Crock
Pot so the ends extend an inch or so out of the pot. Place
the meatloaf in the pot (the foil will make it easier to
lift the meatloaf out and keep it out of the drippings).
Combine remaining soup, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce,
the water, mustard, and brown sugar. Whisk together and
pour over the meat loaf. Cover and cook on low for 8 to
10 hours. Serves 4 to 6.
Slow Cooker Meatloaf

2 pounds of lean hamburger
2 eggs
2 slices bread, in small cubes
Salt and pepper
1 small onion, chopped
Beat eggs - add bread cubes. Add enough milk to moisten all.
Add hamburger....squish all together with your hands. Season
to taste. Place in slow cooker/Crock Pot....shape to fit,
flatten. Pour catsup on top (enough to cover completely)
Crock on low all day 8 - 12 hours.
Notes: I've also used crushed crackers instead of bread,
and salsa instead of the ketchup. With only 1/2 lb. of
meat, you'll probably want to use just one egg.
Bubba's Easy Meatloaf

1 pound ground beef
2 cups shredded cabbage
1 medium green pepper, chopped finely
1 teaspoon salt
dash of garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon celery powder/salt
1 tablespoon crushed dried onion flakes
1/2 teaspoon caraway seed, optional
1 egg, beaten, optional
Thoroughly combine all ingredients. Shape into round loaf.
Place accessory meat rack in slow cooker/Crock Pot. Place
meat loaf on rack. Cover and cook on high for 4-6 hours.
This recipe can be doubled to fit a large 6 qt.
Sorry can't be responsible if you don't like it or doesn't

Kitchen and Household Tips for this week:


To prevent cake filling from soaking into the cake, sprinkle
layers lightly with confectioners' sugar before spreading filling.

Cake will be less like to stick to the pan if you put it on
a wet towel to cool as soon as you take it from the oven.

If you have kitchen or household tips that you would like
to share with fellow readers, please jot them down and and
email them to:

News from Possum Waller

Well I know y'all missed my usual blubbering about Possum
Waller last week. It seems that Supperman decided to take
off on his bike and ride tto see his Momma for Mothers Day.
Well ... hee isn't known for beng able to go any where in a
straight line ... so he wandered off a bit on the way and
ended up a bit far from home ... never did make it to his
Momma's house ... I finally took pitty and drove over to
fetch him home, not a bad trip but took a bit longer than I
expected 'cause Supperman wanted to visit all the places
he had ate at on the way to where he got stuck ... so it was,
well, interesting to say the least, had some good food for
sure, even had some Thai food, not sure what it was but real
good ... so Supperman is back home, sleeping off his binge,
and I am sure he will be around soon.
