Mom's meatloaf (a family secret revealed)!:
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 c. saltine crumbs
1 1/4 c. milk
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup minced or grated onion
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. celery salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. sage
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
Mix ingredients in the order shown. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees in an ungreased loaf pan or shallow baking dish.
Add some mashed potatoes and gravy (fresh or pre-made), some balsamic and butter asparagus and red pepper (sauteed), and my favorite comfort food side dish: Canned carrots, cooked with butter and Lawry's Seasoning Salt (the sugar in this salt mixture is heaven on carrots).
And then get ready for delicious:
