For some strange reason I had a can of corned beef with onion in my kitchen and after scanning through the hundreds of videos I've made through this channel, I've realized I've never made a St. Patrick's Day meatloaf before, though I have made a corned beef meatloaf before. It was a New York Reuben Meatloaf and that was 3 1/2 years ago, way before I came out. I do recall my dad saying something about the corned beef smelling like dog food then.
Making a meatloaf out of canned luncheon meats is the easiest type of meatloaf you can make if you're strapped for time, though it's definitely not one of the healthiest what with the salt and all. But hey, at least all that cheese counterbalances with the saltiness of the canned meat!
I put in a ton of cheese into this meatloaf only because I find slicing a block of cheese into thin slices a pain in the ass, so I just used chunks instead.
This meatloaf tasted very cheesy and you can detect the cabbage in it. It had a very soft texture to it. Now normally you open up a can of luncheon meat like Spam with a screw. The only problem is if you stop in the middle of unscrewing the can, the screw will be detached and all of the power tools in the world will make getting the meat out a struggle. Hence you're screwed. Luckily when I screwed up, I unscrewed just enough of the can to scoop the contents out of it, but needless to say I was very pissed at myself and frustrated.
Despite my dad not liking the last corned beef meatloaf I made over three years ago, he said this meatloaf was a winner!
You will need:
For the cooking equipment:
A large bowl
A loaf pan
Nonstick cooking spray
For the meatloaf:
2 beaten and whisked eggs
1/2 cup clementine drink or jam(you could use any beer instead)
1/2 cup chopped cabbage or sauerkraut
1 cup Irish soda bread
4 oz. potato chips
12 oz. canned corned beef with onion
Irish white cheddar cheese
1. Put the first 3 ingredients into the large bowl. Crumble up the soda bread and crush the potato chips before putting them into the large bowl.
2. Add the corned beef to the large bowl. Mix all the ingredients up until you get a firm meatloaf mixture.
3. Spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Put half the meatloaf mixture into the loaf pan. Top the mixture in the pan with however much Irish cheese you like and cover the cheese with the rest of the meatloaf mixture.
4. Bake the meatloaf in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 20-25 minutes.
