Meatloaf with Cheese and Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Here’s how we make meatloaf for a big crowd, using a recipe adapted from the Disney Family Cookbook:
Mean and Lean Meat Loaf
For 480 servings, Make 12 times: Use 15 shallow steamtable pans, lined with pansavers, or use disposable full size pans. Press 4/5ths of each batch into each pan flat like a cake. Combine the other 1/5 from 5 batches to make 3 extra pans. (We did this because the full 10# batch seemed too thick for the shallow steamtable pans. If you want go ahead and make them thicker and just use 12 pans.) When done, cut into 40 pieces (8×5) You can also form each batch into individual loaves if you’d rather have slices of meatloaf instead of squares.
For each batch, use the quantity listed first. The total for 12 batches is in parentheses.
10# lean ground beef (120#)
10 eggs (10 dozen)
5 cups rolled oats (60 cups)
2 1/2 cups chopped onions (about 12# diced frozen onions)
1 1/2 cups chopped green pepper (18 cups)
½ cup plus 2 Tbsp steak sauce (7 ½ cups)
2 1/2 cups catsup (about 3 #10 cans)
5 tsp pepper (20 TBSP)
2 ½ tsp salt (10 TBSP)
2 ½ tsp basil (10 TBSP)
2 ½ tsp garlic powder (10 TBSP)
2 1/2 cups catsup (30 cups, about 3 #10 cans)
1 cup packed brown sugar (12 cups)
5 tsp ground mustard (1 ¼ cups)
Mix ingredients, but don’t over mix or the resulting meatloaf will be too dense and dry. Don’t put the sauce on top until last half hour of baking. Cover with foil and bake at 325* convection for 1 hour. Remove foil, spread sauce on top of meatloaves and bake an additional ½ hour, until internal temp reaches 160*. Let sit for 10 min. before slicing.
