I made up another recipe tonight. This one turned out really well. The kids loved it.
1 package of ground beef
1 fresh clove of garlic
1/2 an onion
1 tsp brown sugar
Italian Style bread crumbs
Garlic and herb seasoning
preheat oven to 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes (I did 50)
I chopped up the garlic and onion and sauted it in olive oil, a tiny bit of spiced rum and some good ole Kentucky bourbon (mostly bourbon, though). While that was cooking I mixed up the beef, egg, bread crumbs, pepper and seasoning. It's actually pretty fun squishing it between your fingers :) As per an earlier conversation with Nicole, I decided to give the kids the choice between ketchup and BBQ sauce. They opted to have the ketchup with the potatoes I fried up for them, and the BBQ sauce with the meat loaf.
