I am an all-around country woman.
Having been born in Tennessee, and growing up in Kentucky, I have come to love the basic home cooking that the south is known for.
My man is a "meat and taters" type man.
Give him those and some bread, and he'll love you for life!
Here are some great recipes I've found!
Sure do hope you enjoy!
1. Honey Barbecue Meat Loaf & Ranch Mashed Potatoes
Here's a classic meal with a little twist!
It's totally delish, and is relatively easy to make!
Throw in a green veggie, and you've got a meal!
Honey Barbecue Meat Loaf
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
1/2 cup oats -- quick cooking
1/3 cup barbecue sauce -- honey flavored
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon mustard -- prepared
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1 pound ground beef
In a large bowl, stir together soup mix, egg, oats, barbecue sauce, onion, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic powder, salt, pepper and chili powder.
Add beef and mix well.
Press into an ungreased 8-in.
Bake at 350* for 1 hour.
Top with ketchup.
Bake 5-10 minutes
longer or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160*.
Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Ranch Mashed Potatoes:
Make regular mashed potatoes but with the following changes:
Omit the butter
Replace some of the milk with Ranch dressing (I prefer either Uncle Dans or
Hidden Valley Ranch mixes, prepared)
Add 2-3 Tbsp.
of cream cheese
Top with shredded cheddar and, if you wish, bacon bits
