Three Happy Guys

I'm beginning to think this is Rachelle and Victoria's food blog, come on Wilkinsons post some of your great recipes.

Yesterday the missionaries joined us for dinner offering me the opportunity to cook a hearty guy meal. You know ....meat, potatoes and calories. The menu I planned didn't disappoint the three guys at the table. Missionary Meatloaf (yep that's the name of the recipe), scalloped potatoes, green salad and 3 choices of ice cream. Two of the ingredients for this meal were cream and bacon which may be disgusting to some of you more healthy calorie counting blog followers but the magic ingredients that made the meatloaf and potatoes so tasty. When you walk and ride bikes everyday you can eat bacon and cream.

Missionary Meatloaf

2 pounds ground beef (93 %)
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup rated carrot
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried sage
10 strips of bacon, uncooked

Meatloaf Sauce
1 cup of ketchup
1 cup of brown sugar

In a large bowl combine all ingredients except bacon and sauce. Mix well. Place in a 9x13 inch pan lightly sprayed with Pam and form into a 9x6 inch loaf. Cut bacon strips in half and place on the top of formed meatloaf. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. Remove from oven and drain off excess juices. Spoon on enough meatloaf sauce to cover top. Return to oven and bake for about 20 minutes longer or until done. Let stand for a few minuets before cutting.

Serve with the extra sauce, enjoy.

This recipe is from "The Essential Mormon Cookbook"


  1. I was the non-missionary dude at the table. The food was scrumpdelicious! If that's not a real word, then the food was extremely tasty.

  2. I like your new word Ken! Scrumdelicious sounds like an awesome adjective for describing food.

  3. It looks almost like a ketchup covered jewel.
