Aunt Peggy's Meatloaf


Came home tonight and was wanting something quick and fast to eat. I had some veggies I cooked over the weekend so all I needed was a meat. So I tried Aunt Peggy's Meatloaf. Got it off the Food Network site. It is Paula Deans Aunt Peggy's recipe. I omitted a few items but it still was great.

 It's a keeper!



  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup chopped Vidalia onion
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, tomato paste, onions, oats, egg, salt, and pepper.
Shape the mixture into a loaf and place it in a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan.
In a small bowl, whisk together the ketchup and brown sugar.
 Slather the glaze on top of the meat loaf and bake until the meat loaf is firm and cooked all the way through, about 1 hour.
 Serve hot.

I left out the bell pepper and mustard in the sauce over the top. I will probably add it next time since I didn't have any on hand tonight.

Who loves freebies? Me and I know you all do to...well after reading this post back at the first of the year, I was so excited cause I knew I would score some free magazines and would not have to pay a dime for them. Oh I love those 5 buck subscriptions that you see here and there but 0 sounds so much nicer.

This is what I have scored so far in the last couple of months with my coke rewards....

Luckily my Country Living ran out this month and today I got it again for the year free!

I also have a bag of coke tops and just waiting to add them to my account to pick out some more free items.

So thanks Susie!
