Meatloaf with Cheese and Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Salad Bar

Eggnog Cake

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)

 

Sauce:

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.

Salad Bar

Bread Pudding with Vanilla Sauce

The week before Thanksgiving, we had a great crowd of almost 500 for a dinner of fried chicken from Pizza Ranch, corn, biscuits, salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, and warm apple crisp with ice cream.

Here’s the recipe for the apple crisp (we left out the toffee bits this time, and it’s still good)

Apple Toffee Crisp:  40 servings per 12x20x2 pan.  Make 13 times for 520 servings.  Use full size steamtable or disposable pans.

 

20 cups Apples per pan (To save time and effort, use cases of frozen, peeled sliced apples: 30#/case)   Total for 13 pans: 260 cups

If apples are frozen, bake apples first for 30 minutes at 350*.  Stir, then add the sugar, flour and butter (see below).

For each pan, toss 20 cups of apples with 1 ½ cups sugar and ½ cup flour, coating apples evenly.  Spread in bottom of greased baking pan.  Dot with ¼# cut up butter.

Crumble topping over the apples.  Bake at 350* for 45-50 minutes or until lightly browned and apples are tender.  Serve warm with ice cream.

Oatmeal Topping:  Per pan amount listed first, total for 13 pans in parentheses

Whisk together:

2 cups flour     (26 cups flour)

1 tsp cinnamon   (13 tsp cinnamon)

½ tsp baking powder    (6 ½ tsp)

½ tsp baking soda    (6 ½ tsp)

½ tsp salt    (6 ½ tsp)

Stir in:

1 cup sugar     (13 cups sugar)

16 oz toffee bits      (13# toffee bits)

2 cups uncooked rolled oats    (26 cups oats)

Melt ½# butter (Total 6 ½#)   and add to oat mixture, mixing until crumbs are formed.  Sprinkle crumb mixture over apples.

Chicken Dinner Tonight

It’s a Calvary Lutheran Church favorite tonight…Pizza Ranch is delivering the chicken right to our dining room.

As Pizza Ranch advertises on their website, “Get The Country’s Best Chicken, crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside!” 

The Calvary kitchen crew will add the mashed potatoes and gravy, biscuits, salad bar and an apple crisp for dessert.

Salad Bar and Pumpkin Pie

Here’s a little recap of dinners from the last few weeks.  Our first attempt at making our own pizza went pretty well, and we hope everyone liked it.  We made 120 pizzas using a frozen pizza crust from Sysco and various toppings, including sausage, peppers and onions, black olives, mozzarella, cheddar and parmesan cheeses, marinara sauce, mushrooms and pepperoni. The 120 pizzas were cut into 10 pieces each, and served our crowd of 475 with just a few pizzas leftover.

In the worship service after the pizza dinner, the older kids from Wednesday school sang for us, and then we finished up the service singing along with the Praise Band.

We started off the month with an Octoberfest style meal of bratwurst and hotdogs, potato salad, calico baked beans, sauerkraut, sliced fresh apples with caramel dip and kuchen. To keep the apples from browning after slicing, we put into big tubs of ice water with a couple of tablespoons of salt and lemon juice added.

Third graders received their Bibles that night at the Milestone celebration during worship. Parents and children shared the sign of the cross on their foreheads.

Next blog post, I’ll share the recipe for the Tiramisu bars we made for Italian night.

Have a wonderful week and enjoy the fall leaves and warm weather in Rapid City this week. (I took this on my walk near Canyon Lake park today.)
