I’ve been using the “Mean and Lean Meat Loaf” recipe from the Disney’s Family Cookbook since my kids were little.  They always wanted more of the “secret sauce” that is baked on the top of the meatloaf, so I made the loaves smaller and wider so I could increase the surface area to put the “secret sauce” on.  When we make the meatloaf for the Wednesday night meal, we make 70 loaves, each sliced into 10 pieces.  We use 140 pounds of 90% lean ground beef, 11 1/2 dozen eggs, 60 cups of rolled oats, 16 pounds of diced onions, 9 pounds of chopped green peppers, 9 cups steak sauce and 6 #10 cans ketchup.

Here’s the recipe for 4 to 6 servings:

2# lean ground beef

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup rolled oats

1/2 cups chopped onions

1/4 cup chopped green pepper

2 Tbsp steak sauce

1/2 cups catsup

1 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp salt

½ tsp basil

½ tsp garlic powder

Whisk together for Sauce:

1/2 cups catsup

3 Tbsp packed brown sugar

1 tsp ground mustard

Mix ingredients well, form into 1 loaf in a 8 1/2 inch loaf pan, or into smaller loaves on a baking sheet.  Bake at 325* convection, or 350* in regular oven, for 1 hour, covered with foil.  Top with sauce and bake an additional 15-30 minutes uncovered, until internal temp reaches 160*.  Let sit for 10 min. before slicing.
