This Weekend in Hedonism (Segment 3)

  • Cheryl's Recipe Corner!
  • Killer Meatloaf
  • Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 3/4 - 1 cup crushed buttery round crackers (be creative- Cheese-Its or other crackers work well, too!)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup Minced Onion
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons steak sauce (or use BBQ, worcestershire- whatever you like!)
  • THIN sliced baconBrewer's Notes
  • A few slices of bread
  • Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Stir the ground beef, crushed crackers, Cheddar cheese, and onion in a large bowl until well combined. Whisk the eggs, ketchup, and steak sauce in a separate bowl until smooth. Mix the egg mixture into the meat until evenly combined, if the mixture seems too dry, add a little water. Put bread slices in bottom of pan to help absorb grease (throw away after loaf is done cooking!).  Form mixture into a loaf, drape bacon pieces over it- and place into a 9x5 inch loaf pan.  Apply glaze. Bake in preheated oven until the meatloaf reaches 160 degrees F and is no longer pink in the center, 45 to 60 minutes.
  • Glaze Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • Glaze Directions
  • Mix together well.  Put 1/2 on before baking.  Put other 1/2 on about halfway through the baking time.

  • Brewer's Notes
  • Our Imperial IPA is the perfect bridge between Northwest and Northeast styles. It’s an in your face hop-forward beer with balanced bitterness. We use CTZ, Mosaic, and Idaho 7 hops to create tropical notes of fresh cut mango and floral flavors which rounds out the beer with a slight haze for a smooth mouth feel.
