Datz Meatloaf

We kid you not when we say this is a meatlof recipe that will make you swoon AND  Datz  the truth! One of our favorite comfort meals that brings back memories of being around the family table is meatloaf, mashed potatoes and peas. It’s not that easy to make a moist meatloaf and it’s even harder to find one in a restaurant. Today, we bring you the best of both!  Recently, Datz was featured on the Travel Channel show “Meatloaf Paradise” for their most amazing meatloaf.  Datz has put a modern twist on this classic comfort food by stuffing it with jalapeno mac & cheese. Mouthwatering and decadent we just had to get the recipe.   This is the original version without the Mac and cheese. It is the base for the mac and cheese stuffed meatloaf that they use at Datz. This recipe is probably well over 100 years old and is a classic southern style meatloaf from Datz Chef Andy King’s grandmother. A classic indeed and the perfect retro Sunday Supper!

Ingredients you will need…
5 lbs ground beef (80/20)
1 large yellow onion diced
1 green bell pepper diced
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup mustard
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
6 oz crushed saltine crackers
1 tblspn salt
1/2 tblspn pepper
6 eggs
1 can of condensed tomato soup
Preheat oven to 350
In a large mixing bowl combine ground beef, diced vegetables, ketchup, mustard, worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and eggs..
mix well by hand to evenly distribute all seasonings through out the meat.
Next, add in the crushed saltines (the saltines should be crushed in small peices, not powder), mix in by hand as well.
At this point all ingredients should be added except for the can of condensed tomato soup. (this will be the last step).
Form into a loaf and place in a baking dish… now pour the can of condensed soup over the top so that it covers the entire meatloaf.
Place in preheated oven and cook for about 30 to 45 minutes or until internal temperature reaches at least 155…
 remove from oven allow time to rest at room temperature( this will keep the meatloaf from crumbling when you cut it)
