Acts 16:28-34: But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here. Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.
And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway. And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.
Ah, meatloaf! What can you say about meatloaf? My youngest son says, “It is very good!” Here is my version of a classic.
2 pounds ground chuck
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs or instant oats
3/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup milk
1 package onion soup mix
4 slices uncooked bacon
1/2 cup ketchup
6 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Layer bacon in the bottom of a 2.5 quart or 3 quart baking dish.
In a large bowl mix, or in other terms, squish together ground chuck, eggs, bread crumbs (or oats), ketchup, milk and onion soup mix.
I use my Deep Covered Baker from The Pampered Chef.
Cover and bake for about an 1 hour.
Remove from oven and try to drain off most of the grease. Be very careful, meatloaf may shift in the pan and cause grease to splatter.
Mix up your sauce to pour over the top of your meatloaf.
Pour evenly over your meatloaf and return to the oven, uncovered. Bake for about 30 more minutes.
Do Not Over Bake. If it looks like its starting to burn remove it from the oven.
Make this meatloaf for supper tonight and then wait for the compliments. And tell’em it’s just something you threw together!!
