tomato puree (sauce works as a substitute but will not be as thick)
ground beef (80% lean, 20% fat)
plain bread crumbs
old fashioned oats (quick or rolled)
onion, dice or food processed extra small
celery ribs, finely diced
evaporated milk ("unsweetened" condensed milk)
fresh ground pepper
Combine the ingredients and either microwave or heat on a stovetop until the sugar has melted.
TIP: If using tomato sauce, be sure to condense to a thicker consistency.
Set it aside.
Mix all of the ingredients for the meatloaf together, except the ground meat.
Combine the ingredients well.
Slowly add the ground meat and mix very gently.
KEY: Mix it very lightly
Place the mixture into a meatloaf/bread pan and
press down. Again, using a very soft hand.
Cover the meatloaf tightly with foil and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Uncover the foil, top with the Topping Sauce (I use about half, but you can use more) and place the meatloaf back in the oven for an additional 25-30 minutes.
Let the meatloaf rest for 5-10 minutes.
Cut serve with the reserved topping sauce.
If using a leaner beef, then double the butter and oil quantity.
