I am a woman of my word- I promised you all in the September announcements video that I would make a special meatloaf for you once we reached 50 subscribers. Here it is!
It is a recipe I found at http://www.midcenturymenu.com/2014/10/frankfurter-meat-loaf-1965-a-vintage-recipe-test/ that dates back to 1965, which is 50 years ago from 2015. The name of this meatloaf is actually "Frankfurter Meat Loaf"(don't know why they made "meatloaf" two words instead of one...)
Once again, I thank you all for subscribing to my channel. Once we reach 100 subscribers(our next goal), I will try to find a meatloaf recipe that dates back to the 1910s.
The original recipe called for 1/2 a raw onion but I hate raw onions. It also called for a slightly beaten egg, but I don't even know what that means. I also didn't have 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef- I only had 1 pound. So it's a modification of this recipe.
This is the first time I made a stuffed meatloaf and a meatloaf with tomato soup in it. This is also the first time I put a glaze on top of a meatloaf too.
You will need:;
For the cooking vessels:
A loaf pan
Nonstick cooking spray
A large bowl
A small bowl
For the meatloaf:
1/2 a sauteed onion
1 beaten and whisked egg
2/3 cups of tomato soup
1/2 cup of breadcrumbs
1/4 tsp. of salt
Pinch of black pepper
1 pound of 92% ground beef(I thawed my beef for about 22 hours, so some of it was still frozen when I put it in the mixture; you should thaw it for 24-30 hours. Any more and the meat will spoil)
3 beef frankfurters(you might as well put them in raw because they're going to spend 65 minutes in the oven anyway. Nobody likes an overcooked frankfurter.)
For the glaze:
An additional 2/3 cups of tomato soup
1 tsp. of mustard
1. Wash your hands, especially since you will be handling raw meat! :)
2. Put first 6 ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Break apart the ground beef using your hands. Put the beef pieces in the large bowl.
4. Mix all the ingredients in the large bowl using your hands until you get a mixture that is firm.
5. Spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
6. Put half of the meatloaf mixture in the loaf pan and flatten it out.
7. Lay the 3 frankfurters on top of the mixture that's already in the loaf pan.
8. Cover the frankfurters with the remaining mixture that is still in the bowl.
9. Bake in a 350 degree Fahrenheit preheated oven for an hour.
10. While the meatloaf is cooking, make the glaze by mixing the glaze ingredients together in a small bowl until you get a somewhat orange color.
11. Take the meatloaf out of the oven after an hour but don't shut the oven off yet.
12. Pour the glaze on top of the meatloaf. You can spread it out using the back of a spoon.
13. Put the meatloaf back in the oven for 5 more minutes, or until the internal temperature of the meatloaf reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
14. Now you can shut your oven off.
15. Bon appetit!
